Ok this tea is frustrating me!
What is it? It’s called “White Magic” It’s labeled as a green tea on the tin. and is listed as an oolong on steepster. Ingredients: Milk Oolong Green tea. Huh? Add to that they list no steeping instructions on the tin or bag and I’m winging it here.
It’s smells woodsy with a hint of grass/hay.
Well whatever it is, I didn’t mess up the steep too badly. Mellow brew. light brown appearance. Smoooooth. I know you are supposed to sip tea but this one is smooth enough I could gulp it without issue lol. Tasted a little nutty also. I think I like it though it’s not WOWing my socks off.
this IS a smooooooooooooooth black! thanks for the sample, Kasumi no Chajin – sensei ^^
it is my first pure ceylon tea and i like it. it is not too strong (i didnt let it steep for the full 3 minutes).
the liquor is a beautiful golden brown (in my teaspoon) under the yellow light at our dinner table ^^’
i will have to note the aroma next time! (stands up for a resteep)
ok, aroma is dark, rich, kinda bitter-ish but in a good way, like coffee (altho the aroma is not coffee-like, only the bitterness)
taste is the same! reminds me of toast…?
My second cup of this tea. It is not only less citrusy than Twinings Ceylon, it also maltier: perhaps the malty taste covers up the citrus notes.
Smooth and sweet, without any bitterness and not much astringency. At the same time, it lacks something – Twinings Ceylon has more citrus notes. As it cooled, however, it began to have some of the floral taste of Darjeeling
Very nice! I steeped it a bit too long so it came out slightly bitter, but it still tastes great (and if steeped properly – will probably be awesome).
The fruity flavor is noticeable but delicate enough to not overpower the ceylon tea. Downside – it has artificial flavoring added, so maybe not so healthy.
Aroma when Dry: fragrant, sweet, slightly sour, layered
After water is first poured: bright, sour, nutty
At end of steep: slight floral, earthy
At end of steep: deep brown
Staple? Likely, will restock with loose leaf
Time of day preferred: afternoon, evening
first notes: earthy, mild, layered nutty quality
As it cools? Notes blend a bit, tea deepens in texture, gets creamier, and more nutty
Additives used (milk, honey, sugar etc)? No
Lingers? Yes, with a slight nutty, creamy texture, notes build in nutty qualities
Thank goodness that the first time I had this tea it was prepared by an expert. I don’t do it justice. However, I am getting better. I was able to get 3 cups out of a skimpy teaspoon. It smells amazing and tastes just the same. The name fits the experience perfectly. Bare with me, I’m new to the wonderful world of tea. I definitely recommend you try it!
Suprisingly large leaves, almost intact by the look of them.
My sister brought this for me from Riga, Latvia. Strong scent of cranberries and suprisingly good taste. I didn’t find any cranberries though.
