1603 Tasting Notes
I got this from Rachel. Thank you so much again!
This tea is a lovely flavored oolong. I like how dark and large the leaves were. The brew was a nice deep, golden amber in color. The scent and taste were like burnt sugar and a hint of nuts and caramel. It is a warm and toasty/roasty blend. I steeped this twice and the nice light flavor persisted. It tastes light and slightly sweet. It is a smooth tea. A good blend overall.
When I saw the packaging, I saw C&S Puerh and I was confused. What was C&S? It smelled fruity in the bag, and it tasted fruity in my mug! It definitely needed milk and sugar. There was a hint of berries as well as bitterness. It was nice and sweet with the slight cocoa notes coming from the puerh. Delicious blend!
I received this from Rachel! Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity to try this!
First, I figured that I should try a sample today! As usual, I love surprises, so I usually don’t check other reviews before trying a tea. This tea smelled slightly fruity when it was dry. I thought the little green leaves were crushed mint leaves; although, it didn’t smell like mint. Again, as I usually do with black teas I am trying, I steeped it up and took a sip of it straight. I was expecting either mint or bitterness. NOT… AT… ALL… !! I was sooo surprised when I took that sip that it was sweet!!! I didn’t know why it was sweet. It tasted like sweet & low or equal or splenda… ick!
The steeped tea smells like burnt sugar or caramel… I can’t say I’m a huge fan of this, but I am glad I got to try stevia. This is my first time trying it. There is a fruitiness to it that I can’t seem to pinpoint… perhaps berries? Decent tea if you like sweet!
