Recent Tasting Notes

85

Found it! The tea I grew up on. It comes in loose and tea bag packages, with the loose tea tasting better.

OBSERVATIONS: I have no idea what most of these ingredients are. It is a “diet” tea and I find this one not to have a laxative effect (ewww!), whereas most chinese diet teas do.

STEEPED: Amber colour. Smells kinda woodsy medicinal – like walking by an dried herbal chinese shop.

TASTE: Mysteriously tastes like oolong to me, with a bit of black tea in there. Bit of a sweet aftertaste. No bitterness or tart or mystery herbs.

COMMENTS: I don’t drink this for weight loss but more for taste and nostalgia. I think it is supposed to make you full, but I never was into drinking teas that have that effect. However, if you are into asian diet teas, this one has the best taste out there with no grassy, bitter, sour, medicinal taste.
