17 Tasting Notes
OMG I AM IN HEAVEN. I decided to make this into a soy latte and add a little vanilla and mmm heaven in a cup. This tea is a delicious apple cinnamon flavour that reminds you of grandma’s famous apple pie. The soy milk and vanilla gives it a creamy flavour that tastes like a dollop of vanilla ice-cream on top of a slice of apple pie. So so sad that Teaopia is gone because now I want to buy a pound of this tea to engorge myself with.
This is my favourite Oolong, and that’s saying something coming from a girl who hates milk. I love seeing the little balls of dry leave expand into beautiful large leaves so I don’t have it in a strainer or teabag. The floral and grassy smell mixes with the milky smell in the right way to make this tea appealing to someone who dislikes milk on it’s own. There isn’t a way to explain the feeling this tea gives to my taste-buds other than pure pleasure. this cup is such a soothing way to help me relax after a long day.
I decided to give this tea a try today, I bought it back when it I bought my strawberry rhubarb parfait tea. Since I loved the Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait and I love white teas I thought I would love this tea as well. I was right, this tea is delicious sweet and tart in the best ways. Dry this tea has a lovely aroma that welcomes you to try it and steeped the aroma changes to a subtle cinnamon and fruity scent that warm and inviting. The tea’s colour is a beautiful clear light brown and the taste as I mentioned before was a lovely mix of sweet and tart with cinnamon underneath. Definitely a tea I’ll order more of.
