1043 Tasting Notes
Thank you so much boychik for the sample!
I really love rice shou. This is a particularly nice one. It may not be as fancy or have as many layers of flavor as you get in other shou, but something so satisfying about the rice essence. It’s almost like having something full of carbs, you know? Like when you are craving comfort food! It’s like a hug in a cup :)
Thank you Marzipan for the sample!
I thought I didn’t really care for this type of oolong, but it has been more than a year since I have had one and I’ve never tried TeaVivre’s so I decided to give it a shot. I’m actually really enjoying this tea! It is toasty, roasty and satisfying. I like the sweet plum/raisin notes on top and the oolongy tang. I am a Big Red Robe convert! YAY!
Thanks for the sample TeaTiff
Hmm, I wasn’t sure what to expect here. I don’t have much experience with lotus. The first sip I was convinced I hated it. But as I continued to drink it it grew on me. The lotus adds a savory element that I found disconcerting at first. It seems a tiny bit like a rice scented puerh with a hint of mushrooms or something. Now that I have embraced its savory flavor its kind of nice. I’m not getting a lot out of the sheng specifically though. Anyway, definitely interesting and glad I got to try it!
