34 Tasting Notes
Another work tea, pretty good strong taste without overpowering sweetness. Doesn’t resteep at all though.
Someone brought this in at my work, and it is delicious! All the joys of a fruit tea, but without being super overpowering. I like the soft edge from the green tea versus the usual stronger bitterness (astringency?) to the edges of flavored black teas. PLUS, I can usually resteep this gem at least once for a second well-tasting (less full-bodied of course, but still good) cup of tea. I’m giving this guy an extra good rating for withstanding the trials of being a work-related tea.
A decently long time ago I bought a ginseng oolong tea from Ten Ren that I labeled “kings tea,” so I’m not sure where to rate this since there seems to be both a kings tea and a ginseng oolong, but I’m pretty sure they are the same thing. Anyway, its highly delicious and makes for a soothing reading companion. Perfect for dreary rainy sundays.
Woke up in a terrible mood, hiding at my desk at work and keeping calm with this lovely lady. She’s the only thing keeping me from irritably snapping at boring co-workers, so she gets an extra-high rating this morning.
hmm nom nom delicious, one of my favorites from Lupicia.
Um, its warm. And…not earl grey or lipton. My third option at work for when I’m tired of having the same taste all the time, like a slight kick-in-the-face in the morning to get me jumpstarted. Nothing unique though, and doesn’t do well for a second steep. I’m sure it would taste better if I had the ability to properly drink it with better temperatures, etc, but at work its ehh.
Also had this at a recent meeting in tea-bag form, they had a few Harney & Sons options. I love earl grey and this was did not dissatisfy. Bc I just left the tea bag in the cup while sitting in meetings it wasn’t a spectacularly controlled cup of deliciousness, but I’m sure it can be.
Had this at a meeting in tea-bag form recently. Really nice simple green tea, kept me going all day. I’ll have to try some at home so I can play around with steeping times and temperatures, but it stayed pretty good even in the steeping-forever-not-paying-attention fashion that is meetings.
received this as part of the savant oolong sampler, and while its not bad by any means, I’ve had much better oolongs. Its a little too strong/sharp for some of its taste, maybe even a bit bitter? Doesn’t really hold a candle against their oolong #18. Still a good tea, but I wouldn’t buy it again.
