290 Tasting Notes
Oh how devine is the smell of this Oolong? Once brewed I find it looses much of the nutty, sweet smell & smells simply like tea (tea? you say, shouldn’t it smell like it? I only like flavoured tea though). Although there was a slight nutty taste, I could mostly taste the oolong, which as of right now I am not a big fan of.
This is absolutely my favourite tea. I’m not sure exactly which berry comes out at the front. The berry flavour is certainly there and comes out ahead of the white tea. It’s slightly sweet yet slightly tart from the berries. I find icing this tea completely changes the flavour into something I’m not too fond of.
This was the very first loose leaf chai I had tasted and originally I loved it. Now after trying a few I realize there are better (for me) chais out there. This chai definetly delivers on the spice, oh so much spice, especially ginger (which I am not crazy about). Overall a great chai. I’ve just discovered I prefer my chais with a little something more.
I have tried a few “pumpkin” flavoured teas, all others have been lacking that actual pumpkin pie taste I have been after. Except this one. The pumpkin flavour & pumpkin pie spices emmerge beautifully here. It’s almost as satisfying as eating an actual slice of pumpkin pie (I would know, pumpkin pie is by far my fav dessert). Add a little bit of cream (which I never do with tea) & this tea tastes like you added whipped cream to your slice of pie! YUMMERS!
