866 Tasting Notes
I received this in a swap with Ellyn! The aroma of the dry leaf is quite unique. After I read Ellyn’s review on this tea I was kind of afraid to try it becuase…. you know.. pickles…
The flavor is interesting. I can definitely taste the lychee and the only way I can recognize the bamboo flavor is because I have tried just plain bamboo tea. The lemon and tangerine flavor really stick out. Everything just blends in an odd way. This is a very exotic tea and I think it’s ok. Not the best, not the worst. I think it would be pretty good iced. Thanks again Ellyn!
Lately I have had no time for loose leaf :( I’m living off bagged tea…. But I’m sipping on a hot cup of this deliciousness on my way to the gym. I needed a bit of a lift so hopefully this’ll do. The aroma is very tart and fruity. The flavor reminds me of pixie stix. Not bad for a bagged tea. Not to mentioned the bag has been in the water well over 10 minutes now and it just keeps getting better. I’m impressed.
Thank you Lariel for some samples of this! I enjoyed this while on vacation because it was easier to carry(it was bagged) to breakfast thank loose. I was excited to get this because I LOVE anything lemon\lime. When I started steeping it I got kind of a kitchen cleaner smell aroma out of it. But as it cooled the aroma was more pleasant. The flavor was very nice. It was mellow but still had a nice citrusy taste to it. I really enjoyed it! Thanks again!
I bought this at the Southeast Market about a year ago. I bought it when I was first getting into pu-erh and to be honest… this tea kind of scared me away from pu-erhs because of the fishy smell it has. I’ve only had it one other time but I thought I’d give it another shot since I found that pu-erh is actually pretty tasty :]
It’s very mellow. It’s earthy and sweet. It has a bit of a floral-ish note. It is actually pretty satisfying for super cheap pu-erh.
Thank you Alphakitty! I decided this would be a nice tea to go with lunch. I have never had a rose earl grey but it’s delicious! I love anything with rose in it. It’s such a nice flavor. I’m always hesitant on earl grey teas because I find them overpowering for some reason, but this one is very well balanced. The rose and bergamot blend well together. I really enjoyed this! Thank you again!!
Thank you Alphakitty! This tea smells wonderful! It has a nice citrusy, berry aroma to it. The flavor is pretty great. It has notes of orange, lemon, strawberry, currant, and a little bit of a floral flavor. The black tea base is present with malty/sweet notes. It almost reminds me of berry lemonade. But better. Because it’s tea :]
