75 Tasting Notes
Now that it’s so hot, I’ve gravitated to iced teas (except when I’m craving a good cup and decide to turn on the A/C to make it really enjoyable). I had not tried Tea Forte’s iced tea blends, so I wasn’t sure what to expect from the Nantucket Tea sampler I bought two days ago. The first candidate: Pomegranate Blackberry is fantastic! Fruity and smooth, I really like this one. Now, I need to buy a larger supply of it…and test the rest in the sampler packet. I’m hopeful that most of them will be enjoyable.
Purchased this through the Steepster promo, and I must say that it lives up to the anticipation :) The color, aroma, and taste are fantastic – really high quality and the tea never tastes bitter. My favorite part may be, though, seeing the tea leaves in all their glory as they unfurl in my cup. This tea confirms for me that oolong is my favorite, and this is one of the best oolongs I’ve had. Thank you Chicago Tea Garden!
Bought this on a recommendation from Wystone’s World Teas in Lakewood, CO. It is as good as they said, smooth in taste, rich in color. At first, it seemed to have a smokey scent, but really it’s just a rich smell. There is no skimping on flavor with this tea, and the color is almost as dark as coffee, but the tea is finely flavored, not bitter. Definitely worth the price!
