7 Tasting Notes
One of my favorite Roobios so far. VERY blueberry, tart yet smooth at the same time. Almost no taste of Roobios but somehow that is ok. An antioxidant punch that I can’t wait to try iced.
Fruit Loops? Yes please, and add some green tea for milk. To me, the fruit and green tea tasted balanced, and I didn’t feel like one over-powered the other. I would reorder this tea and also recommend it to others new to trying green tea.
Wow. All I can say is wow. This “first flush” Darjeeling is a keeper. This tea makes me understand about all the hoopla about Darjeeling teas. With light liquor, this black tea has both floral and lemony notes. Anyone wanting to have a good example of astringency in their tea should pick up this delicious variety. Highly recommended.
A nice dessert or after dinner tea. The brewed tea is a golden brown, honey color that is slightly cloudy. I steeped this tea in Tea Forte’s clear, double-walled Morehouse cup with lid, which really is a nice container to enjoy the color of the tea and to hold, giving off a really warm radiant heat that’s not too hot to handle. The smell of cocoa instantly rises and reminds me of the cocoa hulls mulch I occasionally spread in my garden; followed by the earthy truffle scent. The taste exactly mirrored the scents, cocoa followed by earthy truffle. I drank this tea with a cinnamon pastry and the sweetness of the dessert made the tea that much more enjoyable. I definitely recommend drinking this tea paired with sweets. Anything that pairs well with chocolate would hit the spot!
