5 Tasting Notes

67
drank Azteca Fire by Teavana
5 tasting notes

All the flavors come through at varying strengths. First chocolate, then chili and then a mild reminder of the fruit in it. I first prepared this in water and it looked kind of gross but tasted alright. I would recommend this highly in milk, it makes the chocolate and chili flavors shine in a more fulfilling way.

drank Peachy Oolong by Tavalon Tea
5 tasting notes

I tried this tea at the recommended steep time, amount, and at 25 degrees bellow the recommended water temperature on the jar. I would usually only do 1 tbs of oolong per 8 oz of water but I figured that maybe for this particular tea it needed a higher amount for a stronger flavor. As far as taste, in the conditions I prepared the tea, I felt like the tea had a very nice aftertaste. It was a little bitter and smokey but in a good way. The peach comes in smoothly at the end. I feel like 220 degrees F (the recommended temp for this Tavalon tea) is a little too much for any tea, I fear burning the leaves. 195 degrees F was just right, next time I may prepare it at 1 tbs per 8 oz.

It’s very smooth not bitter at all. However coconut flavor and smell is very overpowering. You can still kind of taste the pineapple and rose but all flavors are kind of lost to the coconut flavor.
