I tried this chai today. I have been trying to think of the best way to describe it. Sadly, the best word I can come up with is…mediciney. I did not enjoy it. It was not horrible, but I did not like it either. I am thankful for the free sample though.
43 Tasting Notes
I had a nice cup of this tea today. When I opened the package, I could smell the soothing scent of lavender immediately. When I lifted the cup to my nose, I could small bergamont and lavander, but they were not in competition.
The first half of the cup, I drank straight. The flavors mingled nicely together. The second half of the cup, I added milk. I wanted to see if it would hold up nicely, and it did. I enjoyed the cup.
This tea would make a nice latte as well. I may just have to order more and see.
The first brew of this tea had an amazing floral note, and that is saying a lot coming from me. I hate floral teas. The first cup was an incredible start, and made me wonder how much better the second cup would be. This tea did not disappoint. The tea held up for many brews. I loved this tea.
This is an interesting tea that I tried many different ways. I tried high heat and low heat at various temperatures. It had a distinct taste that was noted with malty tones. It has a robust flavor without overwhelming my pallet. I am not a giant fan of the flavor, but it is quality. This is a quality representation of this tea.
I had to try this one a couple of times. I had to amp up the water temperature and increase my serving size. In the end, I had a chocolaty malty tea. I enjoyed it…eventhough this is not my favorite type.
I have to admit that I was disappointed with this tea. I tried it at least four times, and the result was always the same. Maybe the flavor was just too subtle for me. I like my Pi Lo Chun to be a little more robust. It also had a slight smokey flavor—almost like Dragonwell. Don’t get me wrong, this tea is not horrible. It just is not quite the chun I like.
I tried this tea today, and I was impressed. It has a nice balance smokiness and smoothness. It has a robust body, but is not bitter. It is one of the best Keemuns I have ever sampled. I generally prefer Mao Feng, but this is a strong rival. Kudos.
I’ve had this brew before, but I have yet to rate it. I like the subtle flavor of this green. It is a little smokey, and the body is slightly heavier than expected. The result is subtle smoke with some weight. I was surprised by this tea. It almost reminds me of what a green keemun would taste like.
I did not really enjoy this tea. It had a fishy taste and a bitterness that lingered on my pallet.
I enjoyed a cup of this tea tonight. It has a nice mellow flavor. It might sound odd, but it has a slight tangy taste to it. The afternote reminds me a little of a smokey afternote…but without the smokey flavor. I an intrigued by this tea.
This tea surprised me a little. I found it to have sweet taste and after taste. I did not find the flavor very strong. But I did get some astringency. I am intrigued-more than anything. I am glad that I could finally get to some of these teas.
So far, this has been my favorite Wuyi I received in the sample set from ChaDao. It reminds me of a wuyi TGY mix. It has a smooth/sweet flavor. I definitely stands alone. I am not used to Wuyis without smokiness. Love it. I am just surprised it has been rated so low.
I recently tried this tea, and I was quite impressed. The first infusion was steeped for 30 sec. with 190 degree water. This started with a rather weak brew. But the second infusion, water 190 and 45 sec. was amazing. It had a sweet mellow flavor with a cinnamon after taste. I really enjoyed this tea. Subsequent infusions were not as impressive, but it was still worth resteeping.
I am trying to place what I like about this oolong. It has as subtle smoky and chocolate notes. But it also has an earthiness that lingers on the tongue after the sip. It is an interesting oolong for sure.
I tried this one today, I received a free sample in the mail. I enjoyed the mellow flavor of this wuyi. It is always nice to see another variation of this tea.
I like this Mao Feng. The price is right, and so is the flavor profile. It is in my daily rotation.
I cannot complain about this tea. It is exactly what I would expect from an affordable Bi Luo Chun. It has a sweet taste. It is in my daily rotation.
This is a nice Keemun.

I tried a sample of this tea today. It has a nice chai flavour. It also has a nice, non-bitter, coffee flavour. If you enjoy chai tea, you should try this one.
I enjoyed this tea. It was what I expect from a gyokuro.
I enjoyed this tea. I would agree that it had a subtle flavor. I tasted buttery notes, and a very small hint of smokiness. I would surly recommend this tea.
After the peach oolong from butiki, I was a little let down by this tea. It is good, but the grape did not flow as well with the oolong as the peach did.
I was afraid of this tea because I do not generally drink flavored teas. But I like oolongs and I like peach, so it was something I wanted to try. The smell in the package was very strong, this also worried me. I was afraid that I would not taste the oolong, but I was wrong. The oolong flavor was strong and the peach accented it well. I was quite impressed. I enjoyed this cup of tea a lot.
