22 Tasting Notes
Although it might be “smelly”, this is a lighter tea with a delicate taste. I tried the second infusion in the middle of the afternoon.
Yet another great Japanese green tea. The first, second and third infusions each bring out different aromas to the tea. Note that the tea leaves should have plenty of space to infuse and as they are very gentle, the water should be cooler too.
A tea that is delicate in flavor and allows for a whole day drinking, with my favorite infusion being the second. Its subtlety in brewing allows different tastes, according to the infusion time and water temperature.
Very sweet flavour, resembling the chinese teas from Yunnan. Gentle, yet strong, good for afternoon or morning snack.
Very mild flavour, sweet and soft, and good to drink at any time of the day.
Very strong and earthy flavour tea, from the north of India. I prefer to drink it in the morning or after lunch, due to its higher amount of caffeine.
Delicious. One of Twinings’ best teas.
One of my favorite teas from Gorreana, I usually use it to make my own azorean blend. Strong, but not bitter flavour.
Very strong malty tea. I let it infuse just for 2 minutes, since more than that usually gets it bitter. Very good for mixing with milk or with a few drops of lemon juice.
