76 Tasting Notes

96

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.

I think I’m in love. I’m a milk oolong addict and this blend was perfect. It was creamy and sweet with a really nice vegetal aftertaste. The coconut was present but not overpowering. The coconut flavor starts to fade after the first infusion but the tea leaves themselves can definitely keep going for more.

Fall is here and I have been craving smores like crazy. This tea definitely hit the spot. It was super sweet and definitely brought my favorite fireside treat mind.

This tea was incredibly aromatic and floral. It was smooth and buttery with no noticeable astringency. There were notes of orchid, lavender and vanilla with a fresh greenness in the background.

This tea was wonderfully delicate. The jasmine scenting was there but I loved that the tea itself was still able to shine through. The leaves were absolutely beautiful to watch as they unfurled. I made this iced as well and it was fantastic.
