Recent Tasting Notes
(This log is the second steep.) Just as I thought. This tea loses it’s astringency after the first steep. The second steep was much brighter and delightful. This tea is definitely a winner!
This is the first Assam tea I’ve had. I really enjoyed it. It’s malty just like a Ceylon but I’d think I would now prefer an Assam tea over a Ceylon, although I still really enjoy Ceylon teas.
It was slightly astringent but I get that from every black tea I brew on the first steep. I really liked how mellow and malty and sweet (without adding anything to it) this tea was.
Bolder than most and not for those who want dainty cup, this Ceylon seems to have spent time in the octagon with an Assam as a young and brilliant trainee. Strong enough to grapple with the best of them yet not overwhelming if steeped correctly, you will be dazzled by this graceful powerhouse.
If you know ANY person who takes their crappy supermarket tea black, do kindly direct them to this as their mind and poor, poor palette will be blown.
Second steep is nice and mellow, sweeter.
This is a pretty bold tasting tea. I enjoy it’s strength and I will try to post a longer review when I have more time to analyze this one.
To me, it seems complex and I really like it.
A really good tea.
To me this is a sit and relax tea. But not a sleepy tea, although it comes off more as an herbal tea than a white tea. It’s more a thinking tea.
The citrus flavor gave me a bit of a zing and got my mind working. The citrus flavor was the more prominent flavor. There were also some less notable bright floral tastes. I can’t say too much about this one since I used only slightly less than a teaspoon for an 8 oz cup. Next time I’ll use a larger portion and steep it longer or use hotter water.
I can see this as a tea that I would drink often in the summer time.
A very good, smooth tea, and a hint of sugar complements it nicely.
2nd try at this tea and I still like it alot. A good sipping tea that doesn’t demand my attention.
I love this tea. They say it tastes like golden raisins, which it may, but since raisins are my arch-nemeses I say it tastes like dried fig. In any case, it is a delicious, fruity, sweet oolong that everyone should try.
I’ve had some Ceylon teas that I’ve really enjoyed in the past, particularly the first Ceylon I tried Ceylon Neeraja from Teavana. So that set the bar for most other Ceylon teas I’ve had.
I steeped this tea for two minutes and it seemed a bit too long. The tea came out a bit strong. Although I redeemed it by putting a teaspoon of milk in my cup. This tea takes milk very well. I love the smell. It has a sweet barky smell to it. I enjoy the malty taste but right now it’s just too strong. I have to make a new pot of this and either steep a smaller amount of tea or lower the time.
I am really not a fan of lemongrass so I should have known this wouldn’t be something I’d like. Smell was overpowering. I thought maybe taste would be ok but I just couldn’t get over the smell. I think I’ll stay away from the lemon varieties.
Received as a sample with my last order. The (over) use of lemon grass produces a smell reminiscent of lemon scented cleaner. It lacks a fresh flavor, tastes artificial. Wasn’t able to even finish the pot. Sadly, it’s going to take some hard work to remove the smell from my pot :( …won’t miss it when it’s gone…
I had some of this earlier today. I started brewing it and then sort of forgot about it. (Ooops.) I think it steeped for about 5 minutes? I’m really not sure. Anyway, it was very good when steeped for longer than suggested. It had a much more intense flavor.
This is another tea that I enjoy more every time I try it. Great for multiple infusions, seems to get sweeter with each steep.
Very mild, delicate flavor. Green tea and jasmine. The florals stick with you awhile.
brews very pale and clear.
Backlogging and out…bummer…
I was able to get three really good cups of tea from this today. Nice for a day off.
This is really delicious. Dug this out of my tea-closet, and so glad I did. There are a lot of indifferent Nilgiris out there. This is not one of them.
My first foray into Roobios. The smell of this tea made me smile when I opened the package. Dried sour cherries, no mistaking it. I prepared a cup using the paper tea bags included with my order (handy things, may have to get some more). I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I had hopes based on the dry leaf smell. I wasn’t disappointed! Cherries and whip cream flavor…yumm!
I don’t know if this is related to Roobios, but shortly after drinkng it, I had a significant headache. Bears some testing.
I bought a tin of this without sampling first, so it’s a relief to find out that I really, really like it. The orange is there, but is very subtle. I’m not that experienced at this stuff, so I can’t judge the flavor of the tea base, but it has a golden kind of flavor.
I got this to go in one of those travel mugs with an infuser. It is supposed to stand up to multiple infusions, etc, so I’m looking forward to trying it that way. I’m not quite ready to use the travel mug. I’m not sure why. I guess I’m wondering what kind of attention it will recieve at my workplace (large public high school.) It’s clear and they’ll be able to see that there are leaves.
