135 Tasting Notes
I have no idea what cucumber in tea taste like, so I’m not sure if what I’m tasting is cucumber-ish. I do know that the white base is delicate and delicious, the strawberry is sweet and aromatic, and there IS something there, toning down the tartness a little. Is that the cucumber?
And the fusion of these flavors makes this tea very yummy!
My past experience with green rooibos hasn’t been so good. I adore red rooibos, but the green…well, the green never tasted nearly as good. In spite of all that, I have been wanting to try this tea fora long while, mostly because it has gotten such good reviews and after all, it IS still rooibos.
I admit I expected not to like this, as I have not liked the other green rooibos teas I’ve tried in the past.
I was not prepared to LOVE this tea. Wow this is good! I have no idea what plantain tastes like, but this tea has a banana flavor that is noticeable but gentle. The coconut is not so prominent, but a hint of flavor mixed with the green rooibos base.
Green rooibos has been redeemed :)
This smells smokey, but doesn’t taste very smokey. Actually, it’s sweet.
Without a doubt, this is my favorite of the samples I received from China Cha Dao.
I think I’m going to be needing more of this.
This smells intoxicating – walnuts and spices. The taste is the same, but with an added sweetness that makes it more cake-y. DELICIOUS!
I’m on my third infusion of this and it is wonderful. The smokiness is gone and it is gentle and sweet, with that characteristic oolong-y taste.
This is ok. Not wonderful or memorable. Good enough to drink the 2oz I had of it, but I don’t see myself ordering any more of this.
There’s is a citrus/bergamot thing going on in this tea – and that is exactly the problem. I don’t like bergamot. Why am I drinking this tea in the first place? I got it as a free sample with my last order. As I am always open to try new tea, even those I know I usually dislike. Sometimes there are surprises. Not this time.
Others have given it a high rating, so I guess it’s good to those that like bergamot. I will not be giving this a numeric rating.
This is DELICIOUS! Bi mu dan always tastes slightly fruity to me anyway, so it goes perfectly with the cherry flavors. It’s not overwhelmingly cherry, but gently cherry, to match the gentle white, with a hint of vanilla. I can’t find the brandy, but that’s a good thing because I don’t like brandy.
I really like this.
Having this with milk. Now it’s Creamy Pumpkin goodness! But I think that next time, if I"m planning to have milk in it, I will make it a bit stronger.
