857 Tasting Notes
A huge thank you to Pekko Teas!!
The color of the liquor is a beautiful rust red. The aroma is slightly earthy with a little bit of a toasty note to it. I most certainly can catch the jam and toast notes. It’s slightly dry with a warm wheat note and a sweet ending.
I received this one from a random sample swap from Meowkattack! I was so excited when I got this one because it was soaked in honey. I have never, ever seen a tea that was soaked in honey. Well I went to Teavivre’s site and read up on it. I decided to do multiple steeps with this oolong. So here it goes!
212° for 1 min.
The color of the liquor reminds me of watered down honey. The smell is light, sweet, and with a hint of fresh veggies. The flavor is kind of floral and sweet. I can get a slight hint of honey in the background.
212° for 2 min.
The color has gotten much, much brighter. Almost to a yellowish-green. The smell is very vegetal. The flavor has gotten a little more deep into the oolong with hints of vegetal and savory flavors.
212° for 3 min.
The liquor has turned to a light brownish-yellow. The aroma has turned deep and vegetal with buttery notes. The flavor has a slight mineral taste to it along with a deep oolong flavor. There is still a slight buttery/vegetal flavor to it but it’s very light.
This is the first oolong I have tried steeping multiple times and I loved it! I think it is so amazing how the flavor changes with every steeping! Thanks again!!
I received this in a random sample swap from Meowkattack! I decided I wanted to use my clear glass teapot today and I’m happy I did! The color of the liquor is beautiful, a light olive green. I don’t think I’ve ever really tried a dragonwell tea. The smell has a sweet fresh vegetable scent to it. The flavor is light and kind of reminds me of buttered peas. I haven’t enjoyed a plain green tea in some time so this was very refreshing! Thanks again!!
I totally forgot I had this! I got this in a set for Christmas last year. It came with a glass tea pot and 12 flowering teas. I love flowering teas! They are so beautiful. This was perfect for the mood I was in. I had a ton of sugar today so something light and far away from sugary-sweet seemed just right.
The red flower is very pretty. The flavor is very floral and light. It is lacking a little bit but hey, it fits for right now.
Thank you IrishBreakfastLass! I was so excited when I learned I was getting this in the swap! The ingredients made it sound so interesting. This reminds me of coffee. It’s warm and slightly sweet. I agree that it would make a fantastic coffee replacement. Thank you again!! :]
I got this in the sample swap from Meowkattack! Mmm it smells sooo good and it’s even better when it’s steeped! I can pick out the fresh pear and caramel notes. I’m actually impressed with this tea! It’s so sweet and juicy! The flavors are done so well! I’m so happy I got to try this. Thank you again!
GAH! This tea is so good. Believe it or not I bought a red velvet cake slice from the grocery store just to taste it, and of course it was delicious. Well, this tea tastes EXACTLY like it. Frosting and all. It’s very creamy and smooth. Sweet and I can even taste the cream cheese-like frosting. This will most definitely be one of my “I need something sweet, NOW” teas. mmmmmm :]
Well today has just started out fantastic(sarcasm), so I needed something that would cheer me up a bit. The smell of this tea reminds me of warm cotton candy with it’s sugary sweetness. The little gold glitters make me happy. They are pretty. MM :] For some reason this tea just tastes like cotton candy to me. I can get the cinnamon, but it’s mostly sugar and vanilla flavors. I love it and I really want to order more!
