So I’m horrible at describing scents and flavors of oolong, but I already love the smell of this one. I have to say, I love the taste of this tea. It’s got that beautiful grassyness that comes with oolong with a velvet feel across your tongue. At first sip, I immediately felt relaxed. This might become my new favorite tea.
Un-steeped leaf: lots of cloves. Not much else really.
Steeped: smells still heavily of cloves, but much less concentrated. I tasted it after the 2 min and 45 seconds and realized it was incredibly weak so I’m having it steep for a bit more.
So after a second steeping at a lower temperature of sorts, I am still getting primarily cloves. A slight bitter aftertaste, but I think that’s just because of the tannins of black tea. Not really my thing, but I’m willing to try it again.
This tea is ok. I don’t really know what other words to describe it. The first smell is very refreshing. But the taste is a bit lackluster. I think it may also be because I don’t particularly like turmeric, but the citrus is certainly nice. The citrus comes out significantly more in the aftertaste, which is ok. I think I will add a couple cubes of dried pineapple to sweeten it and flavor it a bit more
I didn’t get much flavor out of this. The tea leaves smell nice and the tea itself is soothing and wonderful. However, I couldn’t really taste the apricot too much but that wasn’t an issue because the oolong itself is very nice. Smooth on the tongue, very bold in a roasted sort of way. Enjoyable. Disclaimer: I might not have gotten much flavor because I have the sniffles. Still pleasurable to drink.
This tea is ok. I wasn’t expecting much seeing as it’s a bagged tea and I’ve been disappointed many times with bagged teas, but this one surprised me. It actually had a decent amount of flavor and I actually enjoyed it and I don’t generally like rooibos. No, it doesn’t taste much like chocolate and yes, the peppermint is very much an aftertaste. But, the tea itself was decently enjoyable.
After tasting this tea a second time, I still don’t like it. The tea itself is pretty weak and the berry flavoring just seemed disappointing to me. Tho I do see how this easily could be a matter of personal preference. I gave the rest to my brother who has seemed to have better luck using it as iced tea.
This time, unlike last time, I used a lot more tea and it definitely improved it. However, it still tasted like nice black tea with a slightly sweet peppermint aftertaste. At the same time, I’m ok with this. At least I can drink it now and not be so disappointed. Just don’t expect an actual candy cane flavor.
