73 Tasting Notes
Finished the last of my sample of this. I really enjoyed the sweetness added by the neem leaves.
Just what I need to recover from a camping trip with the family. This is one of the most highly scented jasmine’s i’ve had. Anyone know of a good recipe using jasmine green tea?
The neem gives this strong black tea a subtle sweetness. The flavor is hard to pinpoint but it reminds me of chocolate. From a distance it smells slightly fruity or cake-like. It has a cooling aftertaste too. I’m glad I went with a short infusion time, it seems like other people had some trouble with bitterness.
Uncharacteristically in the mood for a mellow tea today. This one was sweet, vegetal and roasty. Everything a dragonwell should be.
I picked a tin of this up at the NY Coffee and Tea Festival. It has become my go-to tea for a morning pick me up. It’s sweet and just astringent enough. I don’t even need to add milk or sugar.
Wow…just wow. This is probably the best oolong I have ever had, and that says a lot because I’ve had A LOT of oolong. Short steeps in a gaiwan are best. I think I may need to treat myself to this one.
Mint + Oolong = Happy Nicole
Creamy and refreshing, I think I’m in love :)
Took me a couple of steeps to get this one right. It wasn’t outstanding but still tasted pretty good. I’m not such of a strawberry person anyway.
Brewed this in a gaiwan. It’s amazing how much it really does smell and taste like sticky rice. The first steeping was a bit too astringent but all of the other ones (I think I must have done around 6 or so) were very nice.
I really like this one. Just a hint of lavender. The second infusion had the best balance of flavors. A little too sweet after drinking six cups of it :p
