73 Tasting Notes
The first thing that I noticed about this tea was the sweet, floral aroma. On more than one occasion I found myself sticking my nose into the gaiwan and inhaling deeply. The floral aroma was echoed in the taste along with a pleasantly vegetal finish.
This tea was wonderfully earthy and robust yet sweet and mild. It is the puerh for people who think that they don’t like puerh. Another awesome one from Tea Setter.
Darjeeling oolong is something that I have a soft spot for. This one was full of fruit and florals, a really enjoyable cup.
Holy peaches Batman! This tea is super aromatic with heavy notes of peach and a touch of citrus. The sweet aftertaste lingers in the nicest way.
Fruity with a peppery kick. Not bitter at all but has a refreshing astringency. This Darjeeling is 20% Assam so it makes a great wake up tea.
The aroma of this tea was intoxicating as soon as the hot water hit it. I love a good vanilla oolong and this certainly smelled like one. The taste was sweetly floral with heavy doses of cream and a hint of citrus in the finish. I was definitely still able to taste the greenness of the pouchong base.
I liked this tea quite a lot and I think that some of the negative reviews may have to do with oversteeping or too hot water. The flavoring was delicately floral and sweet but notes of cherry became stronger as it cooled.
This tea was full of orchid aroma and sweet floral taste with a subtle vegetable note. There was no astringency and the aftertaste lingered long after each sip. One of the things I love about Dong Ding is that it is a marathon tea. I did five consecutive infusions and probably could have gone for more if bladder had been capable of holding that much tea.
Wonderfully sweet and vegetal with just a hint of a buttery note. I love playing with the curly leaves before steeping and the fat, juicy buds afterwards.
This tea was delish, like comfort food in a cup. The caramel, cream and vanilla were all there but not overdone or artificial tasting.
