1603 Tasting Notes
I received this in a swap a long time ago. I was nervous to try it because of all of the rose petals. They are very pretty and the blend has a little black tea in there. I used the whole sample and steeped it in a small 8oz glass teapot that my mom gave me recently. The rose petals are pink and very beautiful. The liquor was a pale pink/brown. It tasted surprisingly good! It is light and slightly floral. It is not overpowering and not bitter at all. This is a great tea! I wish there was a little more black tea in this blend.
Thank you again Angel for this sample!
I put the whole packet into my new glass teapot that my mom got for me. I am not sure how many pearls there were… perhaps 5-8? It brewed a nice light-medium amber. It smelled warm and roasted. Delicious! It tastes like a yunnan black tea. Delicious! I love the slight nutty and chocolate undertones. It doesn’t need sugar or milk at all. This was so good!
Thank you Angel for this sample. This tea reminded me of the fact that I absolutely LOVE oolongs! It has been a long time since I’ve had a cup of one. I love the bits of white-yellow flower petals mixed with some stems and rolled deep emerald tea leaves. The first steep was very bitter. I think I steeped it too long. The second one was perfect. The nice nutty floral and the warm green oolong is great! This is a delicious tea! It can last several steeps!
