4 Tasting Notes
I enjoyed this tea when it first came out with the Spring Collection. However, it tastes similar to Guangzhou Milk Oolong, and I can’t taste the jasmine pearls at all. I don’t think it was necessary to add the white tea with the oolong, since the oolong is the most predominant. I get the point of it, because it’s a “mix”. Overall, satisfactory tea, but I wouldn’t recommend if you’ve had any other oolong tea.
One of my favourites of the Oolongs at DavidsTea. It’s good alone, hot or iced, and good with or without milk. I find if you add any sweetener it takes away from the flavour. I like to use around 85 degree water, so that the leaves don’t burn but it’s hot enough that it doesn’t cool right away. I’ve resteeped the same batch twice more, and both times it tasted exactly the same but a little more buttery.
Flavors: Creamy, Floral, Milk
Delicious as an iced tea, and fine as a hot tea. I like it with sweetener added so that it tastes like fruit punch or koolaid, but it’s definitely sweet enough to have without any added sweetener. The most powerful flavour is the cheery and cranberry. DavidsTEA recommends 2 perfect teaspoons of tea for iced tea, but I like to used 2 1/2 or around 3 tsps.
Flavors: Cherry, Cranberry, Fruit Punch, Fruity, Sweet, Tart
Out of the three main matchas at DavidsTEA, this is my favourite. It’s creamy and smooth, and I find it’s less grassy than Ceremonial Matcha. I prefer this whisked, rather than using a Matcha Shaker. I also find it’s sweet enough on its own that it doesn’t need any added sweetener. It’s perfect with milk, hot or iced or as a latte.
Flavors: Creamy, Grass, Smooth
