96 Tasting Notes
Didn’t really like this one, I thought it had a very strange aftertaste and it was bitter even if brewed with water under the boiling point.
This is a great oolong, but less fruity and sweet than I thought it would be based on Verdant’s description.
I brewed this gong fu style as Verdant recommends. It’s very tasty but I feel like after 3 infusions it loses a lot of it’s sweet flavour. I find it special because it tastes like caramel without any flavouring added to it.
I love genmaïcha. This one is very tasty, but I feel like the added matcha doesn’t add as much flavour as I was expecting. I’d have to compare it side by side with a “normal” genmaïcha. Still, I like it a lot and it has a balanced flavour between the green tea and the toasted rice.
This is a very unusual green tea for me because i’m used to ones with a very vegetal taste. This one has a more earthy taste with notes of chocolate. I could pick up similarities between the green and black versions of the Laoshan tea. I prefer the black one though.
This is my first jasmine tea. When I opened the bag, I found the smell of the dry leaves not very appealing. I don’t know why but in my mind jasmine smelt totally different from this. I remember having jasmine green tea at a restaurant a few years ago and maybe my memories got messed up.
But now that I have had this tea several times, I find that it is very light and soothing. Brewing this gong fu style seems to be the best way to enjoy this as it tastes better when infused for a very short amount of time. It also holds up very well for several infusions (at least 5 in my experience).
This herbal smells delicious but all I can taste is hibiscus..
This tea was nice, but I prefer Genmaicha over this because it has a vegetal taste that contrasts with the roasted flavour. I found Houjicha to be less interesting, but it is still very good.
This one was good, it didn’t wow me but I think it would be something nice to try if you’re a big drinker of dessert teas. It seems to be one of the better ones at Davidstea.
I brewed this tea following Den’s tea instructions (2 grams of tea in 3 oz water for 1 min) and it was just perfect. It’s a really sweet green tea with no bitterness at all. It was very flavourful and I enjoyed it a lot.
I also tried brewing it using 2 grams of tea in 6 oz water and it was still sweet and delicious but not as flavourful.
