123 Tasting Notes
I remember not loving this at first, but the more I have had it the more I really really like it. It’s just so smooth and nice. Definitely the predominant flavor is hay, but I think I’ve said before that it has a subtle floral quality to it from my taste buds.
I will definitely consider restocking this one on my next Butiki order.
I made a big pot of this for company yesterday while we played Smallworld and watched the World Cup. It’s was a really nice comforting jasmine. Not overly floral at all. It definitely comes in a close second to the Harney & Sons Dragon Pearl Jasmine on my list.
After tasting a ton of jasmine teas and then coming back to this one for the final cup in my tin… I still think this is the best one I’ve had to date. Definitely going to miss having this staple in my cupboard until I allow myself to repurchase teas.
Between my fiance and I… we bought a lot of tea last week at Quintin’s. He chose this one, and I’m glad he did.
I’ve never had a “milk oolong” until this one. If this is any indication of what they taste like, then I might actually like them better than I generally like oolongs. It definitely had a creamy buttery quality. I don’t know that I would call it milky or even think of milk at all if it wasn’t already implied, though. It was a nice cup of tea for the morning, but nothing I would reach for with any regularity.
Also, when it started to cool down, it got decidedly more buttery. The last sip I took was cold and it tasted like someone dropped a stick of butter in my cup when I wasn’t looking!
The more I drink this one the more I taste. Sitting her enjoying this cup I really feel like i should be enjoying sushi with it. In my head I totally am. The seaweed taste is quite strong and the roasted flavor of the toasted rice mixes well. I start to get the sensation of eating sushi rolls. There is no fishy taste, but I think I keep imagining it. When I’ve finished the cup I definitely have the aftertaste of a nice fresh sushi roll in my mouth. It’s really very strange.
This is another tea that I picked up on vacation at Quintin’s Tea Emporium in Virginia Beach. It smelled so lovely in the jar that I had to take it home with me. And I am always looking for new and interesting herbals for my cupboard.
I don’t find this one to be artificially lemon as the other reviewer suggests. It isn’t a bright citrusy lemon, but it’s not cloying or sweet and it doesn’t remind me of household cleaners at all. I think the mint does a good job of balancing out the lemon and both hid the fact that this is a red rooibos which is great since I almost passed on this one because I typically don’t like red rooibos teas.
Definitely one I will be happy to enjoy, though not something I plan to keep stocked.
I picked this one up at Quintin’s Tea Emporium in Virginia Beach on vacation this past week. I am sure that it is actually a different tea company, but I forgot to take a picture of the label they had on the jar in the store and it does not appear to be on their website at this time. So I apologize for the lack of info for this team.
This smells deliciously like strawberry gummy bears or other strawberry candies. I don’t detect any creme at all in it. It’s a nice pleasant tea with a very fruity flavor, though you get a little of the green tea base in each sips as well. I think this one would turn out marvelously as an iced tea.
