WOW. This one is odd…but sometimes odd is GOOD, right!? Well, let’s see…
The dry smells like toasted peanuts with a slight woodsy smell hiding underneath. The wet leaves and post infusion liquid smells like soy sauce. Yes…It reminds me of soy sauce. The color of the liquid is a medium drab brown. The taste is surprisingly good. It has a nutty taste to it but also a roasted or toasted flavor as well as a little like mocha but oddly smoother than I anticipated.
Yeah…this one is odd but good. Not bad at all. Fairly Complex. Makes you think…
Thank you Doulton for allowing me the opportunity to try this tea.
Slightly bitter and a bit creamy. The maple is there but it is almost like a bully forcing him/herself into a situation that they are not invited to. I found this tea to be rough around the edges. I do see potential if the blend percentages were tweaked a bit.
Extra points were given for potential.
I’ve been wanted to try a Watermelon Tea!!! Woot! Here it is…
This smells lovely a little more watermelon than kiwi. It just intensifies as you infuse. Ahhhhh! Awesome and flavorful aroma! It looks like a typical green tea.
The taste is wonderful! Incredible juicy and thirst quenching. You can still taste the mouth-watering green tea but it’s almost equally paired with the watermelon/kiwi tango-dance of goodness! YUMMY!
Had two infusions/cups today to start my day…
Wow! Thanks to TEAEQUALSBLISS for this generous sample! I had tried two darjeelings in the past and didn’t care for them much, but I didn’t know I was supposed to cut the steeping time for darjeelings. We often do side-by-side teas in the afternoon when we have new kinds to try, just for the fun of comparing all the aspects of the teas. Our choices today were this one and Supreme Breakfast by Harney and Sons. My first impression was…holy cow! This smells VEGETAL! It reminded me of my beloved Ruby #18, also known as Sun Moon Lake. The taste….quite good. Less astringent than my early attempts at darjeeling when I oversteeped. Also, it is very light, but not without flavor like a decaffeinated tea, just light and refreshing. I hadn’t read the description yet, but I served Raspberry Pim’s with this tea and they went together well. So they were right on with their serving suggestion! :) The astringency always kept me from making it through a whole cup of darjeeling before, but I had two cups of this one, even though I knew we had another pot of tea to try.
