16 Tasting Notes
This is a quiet, mellow tea to my taste buds with gentle flavors of tobacco, earth, and citrus. It really does go well after a meal as suggested by Bana Tea. I’ve enjoyed the tea through multiple steepings.
This tea is elegant, fragrant, fresh, and easy to drink. Very enjoyable. The tea is tightly rolled in the beginning, and expands dramatically after several steepings to show rather lovely whole leaves. I like this tea.
From a sample – quite a lovely golden color, with a flavor that has mellowed over time. It tastes a hint minty and earthy at the same time. Drinking quite well in early 2013.
A lovely tea, pale, flavorful, excellent. Has hints of what they call melon, but I’d call cucumber, slightly tangy, and an overall really excellent tea enjoyed by my whole family.
My wife and I really like this tea for its beautiful color, deep strong taste, its depth of flavor, and overall enjoyment…and it supposedly lowers one’s blood pressure. We liked it so much that we requested that our local natural food store carry it. It is currently a real favorite at my house.
Wow, this has changed a bit over the last 3 months. Still a bit astringent, it has integrated its flavors nicely and now has a nice floral note to go with its green flavors. It is beginning to develop some depth. Good stuff.
I would echo the description of this tea stated in its intro. It is a mellow, full flavored, earthy tea that is quite harmonious. Color is quite attractive, deep red-orange, with an earthy aroma. I like it, and it is available for a reasonable price. My tea was from a sample provided by YunnanSourcing.
I just made a small pot of the cream Earl Gray and it was excellent. I have tended to shy away from Earl Gray because there are quite a few that I have found heavy handed with the bergamot, but this tea was flavorful, a touch creamy, well balanced and subtle. My 93 year old mom and I both enjoyed it together.
This is a very young raw pu-erh cake with good potential for aging. This note was done on 12/25/2011 and I echo the comments made by Yunnan Sourcing about the orchid fragrance. It has a well balanced taste which has changed over the steepings done in my yixing teapot, and it does have a penetrating taste/aroma. I bought a sample of this tea from which this pot is derived, and will purchase a cake for medium to long term aging.
Fantastic masala chai. The flavors were very clean and precise. My 93 year old mother enjoyed it, my wife enjoyed it, and I enjoyed it as well. I prepared it per instructions on their website (added the tea to boiling water, steeped 2 minutes, added about 1/4 milk, and some sweetener) and voila, wonderful and enjoyable tea. Delicious, delightful, and I ordered more.
