144 Tasting Notes
Like the evening sun through a bedroom window, strokes of warm, subtle tones coalesce into a tea that is distinguished and soulful. Expect from the liquor a stone fruit sweetness and nuttiness that gently kisses the earth.
If I am to have a comfort tea, this is it.
Wow. Really, now, the folks at Admaritea have the oolong hook-up. The select few I’ve tasted so far are absolutely exceptional including this one.
It’s quite dark but not least bit charred and has a deep, decadent sweetness.
The new batch is thinner, sadder.
The scent of the dry leaf is very sweet and very fruity like fruit roll-ups. Awesome fruit roll-ups. Once steeped the leaf releases a scent of creamy vegetation.
And the liquor, yeah. . . nice. Think mango sticky rice and a green tea marshmallow gently folded into a raincloud.
Smooth and dreamy.
Mm hmm. When you open the bag and smell there is the undeniable scent of candied pineapple. I will emphasize that there is not the slightest scent of candy, but of candied fruit. Yum.
Upon cupping the tea the sweetness that once prevailed transformes into a gorgeous blend of floral high notes and layers of tropical nuance.
I drank it hot but this tea yearns to be iced.
A masterful blend.
