29 Tasting Notes

I not know if I’m qualified to be judging oolong yet, so I won’t rate this. But thus tea was fantastic. Sweet, creamy, fruity, delightful. It confirms what I thought, I love green oolong!

Another of the samples from Harney and Sons. Wow. I’m blown away. I’m still fairly new to tea, and this is the first time I’ve had loose, unflavored, unblended Assam. I was expecting glorified Lipton, if I’m to be quite honest. But instead I got rich burnt sugar, like molasses rich, with the slightest astringency so the taste sticks in my mouth. I may never drink my beloved twinings breakfast blends again. I love this so much.

I did not expect to like this tea. I just ordered a bunch of tea from Harney and Sons and they were nice enough to send me some sampled. This particular sample was lovely, like a rooftop flower garden in Paris in the spring, if that’s even a thing. If I had to describe the taste, I would have to say flowers. No flower in particular, just a nice round floral. Absolutely delightful.

Flavors: Floral, Flowers, Salt

I last reviewed this tea maybe 8 months ago. I enjoyed it then, I enjoy it now. I’ll skip the flowery language this time. It’s sweet, earthy, and rich with just a hint of coconut floral. I don’t want to rate this tea, as it’s my only puer ever and I’m sure better puer exists, but from the standpoint of someone who is used to grocery store black tea, I’m loving this.

I normally hate hibiscus-y teas, but I enjoyed this one. It’s exactly what it claims to be, orangey and tart. Not my ideal tea, but good enough. And hibiscus tea is another way to get some vitamin c so that’s a plus too.

I really wanted to love this tea. I do like it. It is warm and spicy and sweet, and it cannot be oversteeped. However, the taste might actually be almost too sweet. I’ll cite stevia for this cloying sweetness. But not bad.

I don’t love this. It tastes kind of artificial and tart. I’m sure someone could love this, especially someone who likes fruity teas. I am not that person. It’s not bad for a bagged tea, but it’s not to my taste.

Let me start by saying this is my first pu’er tea so keep that in mind. This smells like earth and chocolate and salt. I’m envisioning rainforest soil, cocao beans and coconuts, on an island with a salty ocean breeze element. Not entirely sure that situation is possible, but that’s what I’m thinking of, as I definitely need some sort of escape from my studies. It’s tasty. Earthy. It really reminds me of dirt, loamy, rich dirt. Though, I guess rainforest dirt is neither rich nor loamy, but I digress. Okay, so dirt. Sweet dirt. Maybe it doesn’t sound appetizing, but it is.

Like this tea less and less each time I try it. It just tastes kind of weird to me. However, if I steep this tea and a bag of Bengal Spice, the resulting tea is rather tasty, like a peach crumble or cobbler.
