194 Tasting Notes
Fast becoming one of my favourite teas, I think it tastes of an old wooden box or chest. Kind of dusty and old and woody and full of old things. I could have had a cigar in it once, and it probably had treasure, or at least an old silver sixpence or two. Nowadays it’s probably only got a few buttons and a key that doesn’t fit anything any more, but at least it still smells incredible.
That’s what this tea tastes like
Personally, I think this is a delicious blend, with a good balance of bergamot and tea. It has a lovely sharp edge to it. Unfortunately, my housemate tells me he doesn’t like the balance of it. He’s not as enthusiastic about tea as I am, but I am surprised he didn’t like it, I thought it’d be right up his street!
I’m disappointed to say I really didn’t like this. It’s not that it’s objectively a horrible tea or anything, but I just don’t really drink sweet hot drinks like hot chocolate or tea with sugar. The smell is powerful and disgusting but the taste is better. Still not really to my taste – I’ll have to see whether any of my friends like it
This is an incredibly tasty oolong, possibly the best oolong I’ve ever had. It’s lovely and subtle, reminds me a bit of a first flush darjeeling in its subtle sweet taste, but then it has the lovely characteristic smoky oolong flavour to it as well. It’s pretty expensive so I’ve only got a taster, but it is absolutely incredible and I will be rebrewing this pot for the rest of the day. What a wonderful day I have ahead!
