28 Tasting Notes
Interesting green. It smells wonderful! Lovely toasty white chocolate/vanilla aroma, both dry & steeped. At first I thought the green tea taste was oddly separated from the rest, but as I finished the cup it blended together nicely. Sweet, slightly creamy, but I might try this with creamer next time to bump it up. However, it was fine without any additions.
Hmmm. The honeybush has a bit of a sickly sweet honey smell in this blend, both the dry leaves & the brewed tea. It tastes fine, but this seems more like a honey-mint combo. Not really getting a chocolate taste. I may have to play around with blending this with another chocolate base.
Nice green tea. I didn’t get a great buttery mouth feel from this one, a little bit but not as much as I was expecting. I found this one had more of an astringent finish than a pre-Qing Ming version I have from another vendor. Pretty good, but I won’t be replenishing as there are so many other great tea suppliers out there to try.
