255 Tasting Notes
This tea is absolutely amazing, there is a lovely smooth oolong taste. It is special in the sense that it is very creamy and full and a very slight floral hint.
The oolong leaves expand beautifully in water, but be careful to not over steep it or burn the leaves. It is quite fragile and would be an absolute shame if it were to be ruined in such a way.
Choconut Oolong surprised me at first with its intense, deep chocolate flavour. But then in the aftertaste, there was something very odd that I had never tasted before. I had to ask a few opinions before coming to a consensus that it is a liquorice taste that creates a weird coating at the back of your throat. Personally, I prefer oolong teas where the oolong taste is fairly prominent, and this, unfortunately is not one. I think that if you like liquorice and/or chocolate in your tea, then you will love this :)
when I steeped this tea is straight/ by itself, the color really surprised me. It was a deep purple-pink, and I was expecting something more like yellow-orange. As for the taste, it has a very strong natural orange flavor (as opposed to an artificial orange flavor, which I’m really not a fan of). There is also possibly a slight note of other citrus fruits like grapefruit or something like that. The oolong leaves act as a fantastic base for this tea because its flavor is subtle, bringing out the citrus flavors.
The first thing I taste is the intense cinnamon, that is so strong that it was hard for me to finish my sample cup. It was quite unpleasant. It was also very sweet from the honey. The orange peel and cloves do not really contribute much to the flavor but the red rooibos compliments the cinnamon, making it even more intense.
So overall, it is a very overwhelmingly spicy and sweet tea, and I am not the hugest fan of this tea, but if you love cinnamon, you should give this a try :)
I thought I knew (or had a pretty good idea) of what this tea would taste like, but I was pleasantly surprised.
Rather than having strong spices like actual gingerbread, it has a stronger rooibos flavor. I was expecting it to have a much fuller tea body than it does. The taste is more like freshly baked sugar cookies, than like gingerbread. Ginger is what make gingerbread what it is, and this tea does not bring that intense and distinct ginger to the tea. There apparently is ginger in the tea, but I really don’t taste it at all.
Despite all that, it is very delicious and perfect for the holiday season. Drink up :)
Peach Momotaro is a ea that is very close to my heart for several reasons. I am totally in love with anything that has to do peaches, tea, and flowers. So this is a combination of three, and it is TO DIE FOR.
When it blooms, it is absolutely gorgeous, absolute perfection in a cup. The white tea leaves open up to reveal a beautiful marigold. I have never seen a more beautiful blooming tea in my life.
As for the taste, it s refreshing, clean, and very light. The peach flavor is very light and resembles fresh peach. The white tea is not strong at all, so all you really taste is the light peach. I hope you will ll enjoy this tea as much as I do
This is a very unique and elegant tea in general. It does not have very typical flavors seen in most white teas. It has a kind of “tropical” vibe to it. The golden mulberries, the huge coconut pieces and the light tea body make it absolutely flawless, smooth and very clean.
As for the taste, it has a strong sweetness from the mulberries, however, it is balanced well by the beautiful and delicate white tea base. in addition to the sweetness from the mulberries, they also add a “mulberry flavor” haha. I’m not sure how to describe it an other way.
