328 Tasting Notes
This one is much better than I had expected and is getting better as I have been sampling it the past couple of months. This raison flavor sings, w/subtle cinnamon flavor in the background. Lately, I have even been tasting the butter.
Is this possibly better than Marco Polo? The strawberry flavor seems to be stonger than the classic Mariage Freres blend. The berry flavor is not tart but delightful w/some creaminess in the background.
Thanks to Ashmanra for this sample. I can definitely pick up the honey notes and slight malt flavor….No sugar is needed. No milk.
I have always liked Adagios Golden Monkey but perhaps this is as good or better.
My first Matcha and I am soooo pleased. When I saw these flavored matchas, I just could not turn these down. I have been leery to try Matcha-and I was thinking flavored would be a good way to warm me up to the idea. At the same time, I have been sooo curious as Cofftea is always raving about matcha, etc….
I took 1 tsp and frothed it in a splash of water. Then added about 1 cup of cold milk. Tinge of honey. The banana flavor was quite strong and natural- so next time, I will omit the sweetener. No odd vegetative or grassy or fishy flavor was noted.
This was really good. As it is difficult or near impossible to find flavored matchas, I may be placing an order SOON!
I love a good Chinese tea in the afternoon. and this one has delightful toasty flavors.
So far, I am the only Steepsterite to like this one. Really the grass flavor subdues the lemongrass ….so this is one that I like to drink iced and frequently. But, I am in the minority, oh well….
Hmm….the pellets look like rabbit pellets. The blend contains licorice. But the licorice is not noticeable AT ALL. This is a mild oolong. Others have said it is woodsy. And it is. There is a vegetative aroma this tea. Smooth. Not bitter.BUT-not sure if I like this one personally. The woodsy flavor is sooo subtle….I just like my teas w/more flavors… So, I am thinking it is MEH…
This is a great iced tea w/straightforward flavors- a solid, not astringent tea base and lemon grass. As others have said, the lemon grass flavor is strong. But with a little bit of sugar to cut the pungency of the lemon grass, this is wonderful. As the lemongrass is strong, it masks the yunnan-flavors of the tea base. But on the other hand, if a cheaper tea base were used, perhaps, this blend would not be as pleasant.
In fact, this one holds up to multiple infusions.
Good classic morning tea. Bold but not too bold. Not astringent. Slightly, and just slightly smoky. One that I would recommend others to try.
This one has a natual coconut flavor that does not overwhelm the pouchong tea base. Not suprised that this is an award winner. This is one that I will definitely re-order!
