560 Tasting Notes

Trying brewed hot first. Though after reading some comments while waiting for it to steep I kinda wish I had just done cold. So far I agree that it is nothing special when its hot. In fact its kinda mediocre hot. As it starts to cool off the flavor is improving. A bit of honey would really make it great!

When you come across a tea like this it truly makes you thankful to those who picked it. It’s a refined and truly noble tea. One can almost see a king sitting on his throne and drinking this. It goes down smoothly like a bourbon. The roasted, slightly nutty flavor is just amazing. I have to confess though I’m not one who generally drinks darker oolongs but ones like this truly need to be tasted to be appreciated.
Try this both hot and cold. It is enjoyable either way.

Gorgeous color. Not really a fan of the flavor its a mix of eating orange blood zest and fruit loops. I just can’t stand the fake flavors of fruit loops anymore.

Preparation
8 min or more 1 tsp

drank Minty Creme Brulee by Tealated

Sorry… this is a big no for me. I was excited because I love creme brulee but this is a rooibos power trip. With a side of mint. As far as sweetness goes, honestly, there really isn’t any. Sorry just not my … cuppa

Blueberry torte? More like Blueberry TART!!! It’s so tart! It’s like a punch in the face. Though it starts out tart and ends sweet which is nice. I did a cold brew so maybe that affected the flavors a bit. Steeped it for around an hour. Lots of blueberry flavor.

Flavors: Blueberry

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more 2 tsp

A very unique tisane. The strawberry flavor starts off the sip but is immediately taken over by hibiscus. As far as truffle flavor goes… I can maybe see this as a vanilla truffle with a strawberry filling but the hibiscus is too strong to make a good truffle flavor. Maybe needs some vanilla.

Aroma: sweet, nutty, tropical, tangy
Flavor: What is going on in my mouth?!?!?! It starts off smooth with an unknown, indescribable flavor and slowly makes its way to an amazing coconut and pineapple sensation! Pumpkin and carrot….what?! I can’t wrap my head around this tisane. Had to cold steep it because I dislike using hotel Keurigs. The water gets way to hot for me. I think this is better cold.

drank Pina Colada by Fava Tea Co.

Was very skeptical of this at first but wow. This is great. In my opinion it really does taste like a light, alcohol free pina colada. For those of you, like myself, who aren’t vig hibiscus fans you should still give it a try.

What a great oolong. Many different notes that work so well together. Some grassy and marine. Some sweet and creamy. I brewed it hot but … was distracted by dishes so now its cold. It’s still very good though.

drank Goji Pop by DAVIDsTEA

Had the best Goji berry tea at Mango sushi cafe in Minneapolis. So I was excited to try this one. I wish there were more goji berries in the sample because I feel like it’s affecting the flavor. Luckily the few that were in there were enough to over power the hibiscus. The use of honey dew is also a very nice addition.

Where to being… well, I’ve been drinking jasmine tea for a long time. It still remains a favorite of mine but I’ve now added any more.

Green teas are my favorite. I like black tea but generally prefer it flavored. I’m finding a new love for oolong. Especially the type that leans more toward green. Whites are nice. Rooibos can be a hit or miss, but honeybush is better. (Golden Honeydew by Lupicia is the best). I don’t mind herbals but it really depends on the ingredients.
