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.
Very minty, not tasting much cocoa in this. I could smell the honeybush more than I could taste it, but the blend is nice. A bit creamy, but also “clean” feeling, which I think is due to the mint.
Wow, smoky! Not sure I taste the chocolate in this one. Not bitter or too sweet, but very smoky which is throwing me off. Not sure this one is going to be a keeper for me.
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.
Has a very grassy/alfalfa smell dry. A lovely, light, vegetal taste. Some astringent bite to it, but I found it lessened as the tea cooled.
Lovely, has a great nutty aroma & taste. Slightly sweet, not astringent, Dragonwell may be my favorite green tea. I don’t get a real buttery mouth feel, but maybe I just don’t know what to feel for yet? Second steep introduced a bit of an astringent taste.
Got this as a sample. I really liked it, reminded me of Harney & Sons Snow Dragon even though that one’s technically a green. Jasmine scent was lovely but not overpowering. Taste was very light, no real bite of astringency.
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.
