14 Tasting Notes
Delicious! I will say that this has a very thick, buttery mouthfeel. The first time I drank it after coming home from San Francisco, I literally thought “wow, this is feels like butter in my mouth!” The taste itself is lightly floral and slightly creamy. I wish it wasn’t as expensive as it is, but it’s worth it. Very, very good :)
I’m very bad at describing teas, but I got this one not long ago at their store in San Francisco’s Chinatown. It’s so yummy! Very light with a nice mouthfeel, it reminds me of the very first ‘nice’ tea I tried, which was a Silver Needle. I don’t know if this is the correct terminology, but it has a nice earthy minerality to it. My second steepings sometimes have a bit of a lemon-y, citrus taste as well. Delicate. Delicious.
Flavors: Floral, Lemon, Mineral
Absolutely perfect for times when you want something flavored and sweet but not artificial. It just tastes like sweet honeydew and a nice green oolong perfectly balanced. I love that you can taste the tea base, and that both flavors complement one another so well. I usually let it cool a little before drinking it, as I find that the melon flavor stands out more once it’s cooled down.
Flavors: Honeydew, Melon
It’s… fine? It tastes fine, it’s not bad or anything. It’s just not noteworthy. It tastes like a basic Japanese sencha. Lightly grassy. I feel like this can become bitter more easily than average, but once you figure out what works for you it’s fine.
This is a very sweet, very fruity, very yummy tea. It’s a tea for people who don’t drink tea. My boyfriend, who prefers overbrewed Lipton tea to high quality loose leaf varieties, likes this one a lot. He asks for it with some milk and sugar… I personally think it’s quite yummy but I can’t drink it everyday. It definitely fills its niche very well though! Lovely sweet strawberry scent and taste.
Definitely more flavorful than some of the white teas I’ve tried. I don’t find it super floral like another reviewer noted, at all… I wonder if maybe they changed the supplier or something? It’s perfect for when you want a stronger tasting white tea, and I accidently oversteeped it a little on the second steeping but it still tasted delicious. Very happy with it! If you want it to be a bit sweeter you can lower the temperature. 5 minutes at 70-72 C makes for a very lovely cup I think.
