14 Tasting Notes
This is a greener oolong with a light and buttery flavor. It’s smooth, lightly floral and a little bit nutty. On the second steeping a slightly vegetal taste started to emerge, which became even stronger with the third steeping. I will purchase this one again.
Wow, I really love this stuff; it really satisfies my chocolate cravings. However, don’t expect it to be sweet tasing, as it’s more of a rich chocolate flavor, instead. It’s important to use boiling water and let it steep for 10 minutes or more, in order to get that rich decadent flavor. Also, make sure to use 1 serving for every 6 ounces, if not then it will not be rich enough. Sometimes, I prefer to add a little half and half to really get that comforting dessert like creaminess.
Rishi’s Silver Needle has a light delicate flavor. It tastes a bit like sweet hay and baked bread flavor, but is very smooth and not at all bitter. I believe that this would make an excellent tea for someone who is sick or just feeling under the weather.
This teas has is a very pleasant and delicate flavor. The scent of the jasmine is quite strong, but not at all overwhelming. Jasmine dominates the green tea, but in a pleasant way. It leaves the palate feeling hydrated and would make a excellent summer tea. I find it very soothing and relaxing after a tedious day.
