162 Tasting Notes
Yummy light green tea with a hint of toasty undertones. I’m actually almost out of this, need to get some more soon!
A big mug of this to start my Monday morning. I’m not too keen on black teas but I can tolerate this one because of the strawberry flavoring. Now that I think of it, most of the black teas I do drink have some flavor to them. I taste the strawberry more in the aftertaste which is fine. I let it steep for 5 minutes when I normally do 4, so it is slightly stronger than I like.
Wonderful scent with a light and refreshing taste. Had myself a whole pot of it to relax with this evening before it is back to work in the morning.
First time trying this tea. I am using a gaiwan and short steeping times to experiment. It is quite aromatic and tastes sweet and floral. Yet it has a slight acidic bite to it that makes it interesting. The taste lingers in my mouth for a good while after finishing the cup. I have done 3 infusions so far and will continue until I can’t get any more out of the leaves.
Prepared this with warmed vanilla soy milk and agave nectar. Has a really interesting taste. A chai with an unexpected rooibos twist. The blend of spices and rooibos is perfect. They don’t compete or overpower each other. Keep meaning to order more of this since I drink it often in the evenings due to being caffeine free.
Just finished my 3rd infusion and I am done with it for the evening. With that last cup it started to get a faint hay taste with a hint of bitterness. So, 3 infusions seems to be the limit for this one.
Light and delicate with a very soft nutty taste. I like it very much!
I had this tea with breakfast. My dad brought me back several boxes of tea from Paris, France including this one. Good, basic Ceylon tea. Love it with breakfast and have no idea where to get this in the states. I’m also not too fond of black teas but do really enjoy this one.
Only Dragonwell I’ve had so I have nothing to compare it to, but I do like it.
Another travel mug this morning for work. Wanted to see if I tasted the same taste from yesterday. Still there and still perplexed. Never tasted that in a Genmaicha! Maybe my own taste buds are developing?! Enjoying this type of tea, as always.
