223 Tasting Notes
Omg, what a delightful smell! I’m sure this one will be a winner. It smells of sweet coconut. I could just sniff it and be happy :)
But lets steep it… Its yellow, quite light.
It has a similar smell, just less coconut and more green tea. Still delicious.
Tastes good, it’s scented very good with this coconut essence. Sweet, coconut-y and you can taste delicious green tea too. One of the best scented teas I had so far for sure. A perfect desert tea :) Too bad I only had this sampler.
Funny thing is, I’m not even a big fan of coconut ;)
I guess this is the tea I’m about to drink now.
Looks like it’s made out of 3 kinds of various leaves. They smell like the smell of what they sell in stores as indian black tea. You know filtered not very good kind. There’s also an additional smell that i cant define.
I steeped it rather short as it says up here. Looks too bright. Yeah I’m putting the tea back in. After like 2 min it’s still quite yellow and light for an oolong. But I guess it’s how it is.
Idk this one isn’t very tasteful. It’s not bad either. It’s just very mild and undefinable to me.
Wouldn’t get this one again.
Leaves didn’t stink as much as usual :)
I rinsed a few times and then steeped for 10 seconds. Color is red, Smells like pu-erh but not too strong.
It’s very yummy and gentle for a pu-erh. Leaves a lasting nice scent in my mouth. It’s hard tho for me to compare this to anything other than other pu-ehrs.
Anyways nice one. I like it a lot!
Leaves smell weird. I guess the roast mart makes it like that. I never had roast tea other than black. This one could be interesting.
Tea smells less roast than the leaves. Like a typical oolong. Color is slightly darker – bit on the red side.
Tastes interesting. Like roasting killed all the green tea sourness. It’s smooth but not really sweet. Slightly nutty. It’s really really yummy.
The leaves don’t smell as fresh as other oolongs did these days. So I guess that this one should be quite different. But the charm of it is that you never know…
This one smells like a really hot sunny day. The kind of day thats outside right now.
First of all I steeped it on lower temperature (lazyness). Color is light green-yellowish. Smells like green tea :) It’s super smooth. Sweet and floral. I’m really surprised with the fullness of taste in my mouth. I’m loving this one!
Very delicate yummy oolong…
The other matcha teas that I’ve tried were to sour when made without milk (I love matcha milk and shakes). This is the only one that I can drink alone like this. It’s just slightly sour and that could be because I didn’t let the water cool down a bit. It whisked perfectly, no chunks.
Takes like quality green tea. Really leaves the green tea taste in my mouth for a long time. Longer than plain green tea. So it’s more aromatic. I’m really not an expert in matchas but I do like this one. I’d love it with milk too I’m sure of it…
First I gotta say that my sample didn’t have this Yongchun word on the package so it was packed in red package and called Fo Shou (Bergamot) Oolong. But i’m logging it under this one…
Dry leaves smell great. Very fresh grassy. And sweet. I know weird. But it smells sweet to me :D Must be the bergamot…
Wasn’t sure how log to steep this one so I did 1 minute. Looks bright. Should have steeped it longer :) Putting the infusion back in… Two more minutes on lower temperature.
Looks green-yellow. Smells gentle. Grassy.
It’s very gentle. Smooth. Quite watery but not in a bad way. Refreshing. I can’t taste the bergamot. It’s like a very very subtle oolong. And I like this one too.
This looks unusual. Roast green. However, leaves look darker – very dark green. But the smell is grassy. Like dry grass. Roast green – yeah smells exactly like that :)
I’m leaving the water to chill for few minutes. And I’ll go with a short first steep.
Smells like yummy green yunnan. Yellow color.
Mmmm that nutty scent that my favorite silver needle has. I love that in tea. It’s like quality green tea mixed with white silver needle to me :) Which is awesome. If it had a bit more round, maybe slightly sweeter taste it would be perfect. But I still like it a lot! Fresh, smooth, very drinkable and with a nutty note :)
Mmmmm I love it how the leaves smell. Really fresh. It’s like being on a mountain that smells of green tea and fruit :D
Hope it will taste like this too.
One minute steep, the color is very light yellow-greenish. Smells like oolong, grassy.
The taste is very full and smooth. I’m surprised with such a short steep. This is a yummy one. I love the grassy scent that it leaves behind. And it has a slightly sourish note somewhere in my mouth. But barely.
Refreshing and yummy. I’d drink this one again.
I didn’t write any tea reviews in ages :D
Here’s one of the tester Golden Moon packages that I found in my office drawer.
I think I never tried pu-ehr in leaves like this, I always drank the one that came pressed in little balls. And it was always quite weird. So I’m looking forward to this one!
The package smells more like chai than pu-ehr :D
OK in hot water it smells more like pu-ehr, I can barely smell chai :) I don’t think I’ll ever get used to this smell. It’s quite nasty animal-poo-like smell ;)
But, oh well, let’s give it a try…
OK, it’s actually quite tasty. The aggressive pu-ehr goes along quite well with aromatic chai. I can taste both in this blend. And it’s quite even…
The tea itself is really dark colored – like pu-ehr’s. It’s kinda sourish. I’m lacking sweetness. Unfortunately I don’t have any milk here. I think this one could be fabulous with milk and honey. Pretty sure of that.
But all together I’m quite satisfied with this tea. It might be the pu-ehr I liked most till now. 7-8/10-ish
