327 Tasting Notes

Generally I like white tea but this one I think was steeped a bit too much. Though this was part of a tea class so I’m sure they were careful as to how long it was steeped. When it comes to green and white I’m quite picky and usually prefer less steep time then most people. Grassy aroma and flavor. Somewhat nutty as well. Though I’m getting a bit of a bitterness so I’m not really enjoying this cup as much as I think I should.

If you like Pur er you will probably enjoy this one. I’ve tried to get into them for their health benefits… and I just can’t do it. It has a very fishy, marine like, aroma. Kinda weird but somehow nice. Also a bit smoky and woodsy. Tastes like a walk in the forest. Very earthy. It takes like I picked up a twig in the woods and started chewing on it. Not really my thing.

I’ll just come out andd say first off that I’m not a fan of smoky teas. The aroma is smoky and toasty. Kinda nice actually…. but that’s not something I like tasting. It’s pretty intense. Not like a Lapsang souchong but kinda ..woodsy and malthy smoky. Too much tannin. Just not a smoky tea drinker…

BUT I know some people love it and it goes well with milk. So I encourage others to try it before judging it off my review.

A classic tasting black tea. Good for iced tea. Arnie Palmers. But not something I would generally drink on its own. As I’m just not a fan of pure black teas, for the most part. It has a fruity, flowery, and slightly grassy aroma. Same with the flavor but I will also add malty to that.

Preparation
1 tsp

This is a lovely little tea. Received it as a sample after going to their tea class. Which I highly recommend. Even for people who do know lots about tea. It’s fun and you still learn stuff. I think I may buy more of this tea later. In a way it remind me of Teavanas Strawberry Slender Puer but this one I like better. Gah anyway…

The strawberry and the cream come out quite nicely without overpowering the black tea. This would probably taste quite good with a spot of honey. Definitely has a fruity, strawberry smell on the dry and wet leaves.

Flavors: Cream, Strawberry

Did anyone else think that the dry leaves smells like chocolate? I stood there for a moment looking around wondering where the chocolate smell came from after I opened the package, I looked into the package, smelled it and then realized it smells like chocolate. so very odd. Luckily it does not taste it all like chocolate, no I’m sure it would have tasted good with chocolate. It’s just not what I wanted this morning.

I love how smooth it is, so grassy, so nice.

I’ve been avoiding drinking this one for awhile because I thought for sure that it would be bad. as I opened up the package and interesting smell wafted to my nose. I’m still not quite sure of what it was or how I really felt about it. As it has begun to cool down, it’s actually tasting better than I thought. It’s almost like a smoothie.

I’ve been very tired lately. This new late-night work schedule is starting to wear on me… but it’s really nice to be able to be home more with my hubby and baby. AND why is that important to this review? because it is helping keep me in good spirits and to get through some work stuff.

The smell of roses immediately hits you when you open the package. And holy Moses it’s full of rose buds! So cute! And tasty. It’s a light flavor of roses. Or maybe I just didn’t put enough in? Regardless I’m enjoying this cup.

Flavors: Rose

I love strawberries and oolong so this just seemed like a perfect fit. However, I’m not sure how i feel about this one. When first steeped it has an amazing fruity smell that jumps right out of the cup into your nostrils. But I feel that the oolong has a bit of a bitterness to it that kicks in to the aftertaste that I’m just not liking too much.

With a touch of honey i like it much more.

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 with something added. Whites are nice. Rooibos can be a hit or miss. (Golden Honeydew by Lupicia is the best). I don’t mind herbals but it really depends on the ingredients.
