20 Tasting Notes
Earl Grey? Love it. Lapsang souchong? First time trying it. Smoked? Not my cup’a tea.
Can’t say I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. This tea is… “special”. If you want campfire in your mouth, this is the tea for you.
Wow, the herb really smells like rice. Brews nicely, not too bitter, leaves a mild coat – of what I presume to be the herb – behind. First tuocha and first green pu’er; quite liking it.
A soft, caramely, golden-colored brew.
Can’t say that I’m too well versed with the oolongs, but this is certainly the tastiest one I’ve ever had (it’s the second). It leaves my tongue tingling, which I think is because of the high temperature; I’ll lower it in later infusions.
EDIT: Infusion 2 was even better. As expected, lowering the temperature did wonders.
NOTE: I have the Autumn Laoshan Black.
I think I’ve steeped this one a bit too long. The taste was somewhat bitter, though not unpleasant. It tastes bark-ish and smells familiar, yet I cannot quite pin down exactly what familiar thing it smells like.
Will rate after a few more infusions.
Infusion 2: much more pleasant. It tastes more like an Oolong this time (to me), and is very malty. The aftertaste is, as others have said, honey-like. This is a very smooth tea.
I love this tea. The bergamot is just fabulous, and it lasts a great many brews (at least for me).
Not too bitter, just the right mix. The aroma is great and the taste mellow.
This is pretty tasty. Got really bitter near the end of the bag.
I bought this along with the Twinnings Darjeeling. I actually can’t tell the difference between the two, except that the Oolong degrades faster after infusions.
To echo others: it doesn’t have much of a punch. The aroma is weak.
This is a so-so tea; I wouldn’t buy it again.
I find this to be a more subtle tasting tea than Earl Grey or some of the other Black teas. You can get away with a few infusions before the taste starts to really degrade.
It’s good, but nothing special.
