120 Tasting Notes
So I found a bit of this in the back of the cupboard, I was sure I had already finished this up. Well, nope. So I made this iced, since it is still mid to upper 90’s here in NorCal. Iced Earl Grey? Not so bad, the floraly citrusy notes are very crisp, crisper than in hot EG. Still a great aroma, still refreshing.
There is not much left, so I’m going on a Iced EG spree until this is gone. I got this tea ages ago, it can’t be good for much longer.
I’ve been on a mission to clean my tea cupboard, because I went on quite a few tea shopping sprees. I am trying to refrain from buying any more until I empty my cupboard some, but that means my “wanted” list keeps growing longer! It’s a vicious cycle…. :-)
Yummy mango scent and flavor.
Been doing this one iced for a couple of days, making a huge pitcher and drinking all day! Not quite a tropical summer getaway, not even close. :-) But yummy and quenching my thirst!
Doubled up the leaf in my new tea infuser (http://artahome.com/cafe/tea-leaf-infuser, cute isn’t it?) and this is fabulous iced! Been sipping this most of the day, perfect without sugar! Fruity and refreshing!
This is a RTD one that I found, but I can’t remember where…
It’s sweet (with no added sugar) and has a pretty clean taste. Not tasting the black tea, the oolong is present as well as the rose hips? But to me, as I normally don’t like rose anything (not even the flower), it doesn’t taste strongly of rose, but just a sweetness, almost a fruitiness to it.
Tasty. Fabulous cold refreshment on a warm day fo sho. :-)
Good to the very last steeping! If I were ever to buy anything from Teavana again, it would probably be this one. But there are so so many other good oolongs out there, that there is slim chance of that happening.
Another gone from the cupboard!
How weird, I think this one lost almost all its flavor after the box was opened. It still smelled of chocolate, but not as strong as before and there was almost no taste except for a coffee taste. Yes, storage in a cool dry place, no light. So odd.
This one I actually decupboarded a while ago, just was trying to get through the rest of the “no original taste” of it.
Sweetener and pu-erh don’t mix well for me. It was like a blend of those sweetened Lipton RTD’s and pu-erh.
And for some reason, the bottle cap is really really difficult to get off. Even after it’s been opened.
I’m bound and determined to drink the rest of this tin down because it’s been in my cupboard for too long now and I have many other teas to drink!
I still like it, I have it at work mostly, but it’s time to move on to greener or oolong-ier pastures.
Also, I’m trying to turn my pee green for St. Patrick’s Day! ;-)
My green rooibos cherry has been broken. ;-)
I love the aroma when you open the package, peaches, mangoes, and a hint of papaya. The dry mix is beautiful! You can see the flower petals and the chunks of fruit. Like a potpourri trail mix!
The tea brews up light, like an oolong, but with a reddish tint to it. Smells like the dry tea. Very fruity.
The taste is fantastic! Rooibos-y, fruity, it does remind me of tropical days, and summery weather. Sweet, but not too sweet. Almost juicy tasting. I don’t really taste the flower petals, but really I’m not sure what marigold tastes like, so maybe I just can’t identify it here. It’s yummy hot and cold! This will be a good one for the warmer days ahead poured over ice. Perhaps a little rum or something else sweet and alcoholic to mix in? Mmm, perhaps….
