7 Tasting Notes

I’m not one for licorice. Every time I look at this tea’s ingredients, I forget that I love it. Honestly, I don’t feel that it tastes like Nutella. It tastes like chocolate (and a little like hazelnut) but it doesn’t especially taste like chocolate hazelnut?

Doesn’t second steep at all, to my great disappointment.

This could be so nice if the ginger wasn’t so strong. It almost tastes like a chai; however it lacks something and just ends up tasting gross. No thanks.

Meh. This tea is not bad. In fact, it smells delightful, and it goes down fairly well. However, it does not taste especially interesting, and certainly doesn’t taste like raisins or grapes. I won’t be sad to see this one go.

Icing it brings out the grape taste slightly more than serving it hot, but not enough to satisfy my taste. Super disappointing.

A little sad to see so many folks who just aren’t in to this tea!

I love Mint to Be. I love the tingling feeling mint leaves in my mouth, and how refreshing it feels going down. I especially love the caramel/butterscotch/Werther’s candy taste this tea has! Honestly, that butterscotchy taste is a better selling point to me than the mint – I suppose it just didn’t make as good of a pun as “Mint to Be” did. I definitely can’t tell what the coconut is supposed to be doing in here, however. Perhaps it adds to the creamyness?

Recieved as a gift from a friend. I wasn’t a huge fan of this on the first steep. It was bit bitter, and too grassy for me. However, I think I overheated the water. On second steep, I found it to be far sweeter – almost flowery in taste. Doesn’t compare to milk oolong to me, but was definitely worth the steepings.

Flavors: Butter, Flowers, Grass

I am not one to explain flavors “properly”, given that tasting words are so new to me. I tend to describe them with emotions. Quangzhou Milk Oolong tastes like giving an old friend a hug after a long time apart. It tastes buttery and smooth, a scent that reminds me a little of movie theatre popcorn without tasting anything like it. I grabbed a cup on a friend’s recommendation and steeped it again and again! I look forward to buying some for myself.

Bio

My first adventures in tea were unpleasant. After years of frowning at Lipton and at burnt/oversteeped teas, a chocolate tea my mother picked up in San Francisco changed everything for me.

I prefer flavored teas, and adore DAVIDsTEA for their selections. however, I’m trying to break out of my box to try new companies and warm up to straight teas.
