13 Tasting Notes
this has been my evening tea for about two weeks now. it is true to its name and has milkiness to it that is nearly sweet often making sugar unnecessary altogether, though i like the sweetness still.
it can get bitter easily if steeped too long, so don’t do that.
it really doesn’t seem oolong-y at all, more like a green tea almost. i guess that’s why they call it a green oolong? it’s very light, which is why i like it for the evening, though with the cold we are having right now, i might have to turn to the vanilla almond tonight for some depth.
the milk oolong is enjoyable and well met with milk chocolate. pleasing to the nose as well as the mouth.
This is, surprisingly, a weak tea. Next time I think I’ll put two bags in my mug. It smells delicious and the taste almost lives up to that scent, but not quite. I do like it, though I wish there was a stronger Cardamom bent to it. It’s quite sweet and cinnamon-y and I’ll be eager to try it iced!
Update: I adore this tea and have almost finished the canister. Occasionally I’ll use two bags, but I’m giving it a longer steep time and the flavours are much better. It’s only so-so iced, so I prefer it hot. I’m upping my rating to 92ish _
I do like this tea, but it seems a little… bland. Not in a bad way! It’s just very subtle, somewhat ‘warm’ and innocuous. Perhaps it is the orange I ate for breakfast, but I was disappointed with the lack of orange blossom aroma or taste. That said, it is sweet and has that earthy taste I like.
This is a nice tea, smells lovely but the taste is… sort of a letdown. I think it would be better iced than hot, though I like my tea rather strong when hot and rather weak when iced. The weak flavour would probably make an excellent fruited tea base but on its own I was simply not impressed. Lovely package though!
I second Pat’s ‘double take’. What a fine tea! It’s like a wine: very fine focused taste. I did drink mine with sugar, but I have no doubt it the honey sweetness of the natural flavours make it fine on its own. I left my mug for a while and came back to a nearly chill tea, just as good as it was hot. Based on this, I think it would make a fabulous iced drink. This was a sample, I’m definitely ordering a full size.
