Recent Tasting Notes
The orange taste is just a hint, sort of in the back of the mouth, but its definetly there. It brewed to a burnt orange/ochre color…much lighter and not nearly as “red” as normal black teas, and not the pale yellow straw/green I associate with green and white teas. Complex flavor, but not in the class of some of the Darjeeling’s I’ve been sampling lately. Slightly tannic, especially as it cools, and/but not heavily astringent. Mildly grassy smell when steeping. Used 1 heaping teaspoon, as suggested on the sample
A tea listed as #2 on the Chinese top 10 list.
Truly full of surprises as, after opening my first bag, I was a bit sceptical when I saw the little leafs.
Chestnut was the first thing that hit my senses.Very, very complex tea from the Jiang Su province in China that, as always with Chinese teas, is changing faces, mood and caracter between the first and the last brew of one portion.
Always a bit special and I cant help feeling that, whenever I drank a brew, that I have wasted it to the wrong occassion. This tea should be called ‘little prima donna’…
Infused at a higher temp and more loose leaf for a longer time and it’s still pretty light in color for a black. Still good tho.
I got a sample of this with my Teas Etc order. Like most rooibos, it has a coffee kind of vibe to it (at least to these tasebuds!) and that leads me to add creamer and sweetner. This has a nice mint flavor with just a hint of chocolate. I’m debating whether or not to order it again. I like it, but I’m not sure that I would want it often enough. I do need some non-fruity caffeine free options for evenings.
Absolutely lovely. Iced and sweetened at my favorite tea restaurant with lunch.
White and light, with the perfect amount of strawberry flavor and a nice array of other subtle flavors!
I can’t believe I’m the first one to try this! It has a really nice tart hibiscus flavor. The other ingredients don’t come forward and say “Hi!” but they do kind of moderate the hibiscus.
This is a nice tea, and it will be a good afternoon treat.
This tea has a very strong but pleasant orange flavor. Even though it’s a sencha, you can steep it for a full 3 minutes without it getting bitter.
This is an intriguing, almost brothy Ti Kuan Yin. Not what I was expecting, but very good!
I could take or leave this one. It’s not bad, but nothing awesome either. PLUS…word to the wise…don’t oversteep! Doesn’t taste anything like mint if oversteeped. I had 2 Cups…one normal and 1 stronger…eeeek
I tried this again today…doubled steeping time and turned out good but still a little mild in my opinion based on the length of steep. I am glad I oversteeped this one…it was MUCH better.My husband tried it and added T of sugar and thought it was great.
I am going to have to switch up my teas soon, because I am already running out of this one! A little bummed at the moment, because I can’t quite taste the gorgeous light raisin taste. This is not the teas fault, instead it is the fault of my taste buds. Yes, I have a cold. Despite not tasting as amazing as it normally does, it has a lovely color and it is nice and warm on my throat.
If you don’t have a cold, you must try this tea.
Just opened the package for this tea and it went straight into my teapot! After about 4 minutes steep time it was at a lovely honey color and smelled gorgeous. At first sip I didn’t taste too much. It was very light. After a few more sips though the golden raisin absolutely came out. I first tasted notes of honey, then it reminded me of molasses, which then led to raisins! Still enjoying it as I type this, but I can already tell how lovely this tea is! I might steep it just a little longer next time or add a couple of extra leaves for a slightly stronger taste.
Can’t wait for the next cup!
This is too strong of a Earl Grey for me. The bergamot is a overpowering camphor smell. I suppose if you had a cold and wanted to inhale vicks vapor rub it would do the trick. The smell turned me off so much I cant drink the tea.
Yes Mango! YES Nut! YES PLEASE! This is a very good flavored Rooibos! Hip-Hip-WHO-RAY!?
