I don’t know if my taste buds are still screwed up or I brewed it too long, but this tasted like tomato soup to me. I will certainly give it some more tries as Arya and Thunderbolt caryy good stuff
197 Tasting Notes
Very mild, I prefer spicier, but so very pleasant and ideal for nights
This is such a pretty green tea – great long wiry twisted leaves and buds of green and white, with a bit of tan. Totally unlike an Asian green – at least in my limited experience. Very delicate, a little floral, a little sweet, a little mild nut. Very very nice tea
I know I just commented, but I made my husband a pot of this this morning and he, who refuses to get too excited about tea, especially nuances, absolutely loved it!
A beautiful tea, almost midnight blue and organic. Very pleasant, almost sweet
really nice yunnan, smooth , with a bit of pepper, just enough to give it some spark.
This is a tea made for milk, it is quantifiably better with than without. There is a definite tomato taste and scent, in the very nicest of ways and I think I caught a whiff of mint. Very, very nice tea.
My favorite of the Lapsangs’s because the base tea is so good and it is very nicely balanced Simply the best of them all.
I just got some more in a tea swap. Oooh it is sooooooooooo good.
a lovely tea, great flavor, gorgeous orange red color. I may keep some in a jar for these ugly gray days! If I can stop drinking it. Be careful how long you brew it, I am going to try 2.5 min next
A really pleasant, sort of French seeming tea. Good for breakfast in the shadow of Notre Dame or a pleasant afternoon on the “Boule Miche”
All you wonderful Gyokuro fans who so kindly wrote about brewing this stuff. I tried, I really tried, I brewed it every which way and I still don’t like it. I am a big hater of fish and seaweedy stuff and there is just enough that I must sadly decline. It is an attractive tea and I leave it to you all with my best.
A blend of Darjeeling, Assam and Nilgiri. Not nearly as bold as many similar blends. A very nice tea for when you want a black but not too strong or too malty or too anything that English style blacks can be
You won’t find the comapny which sells this, as it is exclusive to Me. I am experimenting with adding rosemary to me tea, since I love it. It tastes just like…Rosemary. I have to use less, as it is VERY dominant.
Got this in a swap, not sure of the base tea, but this is very tasty, mild, pleasant, well balanced
cup of tea
Too chemical in the flavoring, not much ginger, needed too much sugar to bring out the peach
Excellant blend. No one element stands out. A really pleasant way to face getting out of a nice warm bed on a cold wet day. Very fresh base tea.
Very delicate in smell, sight and taste, but with a nice full mouth feel. I added about 2 drops of lemon juice and that brought out a bit more flavor in the nutty/floral department.
Not so hot and the flavor lasts in your mouth too long.
I don’t care what anyone says, I like this tea.
A lovely gentle tea from Yunnan, almost all buds. Doesn;t have the characteristic nose or spice of the usual Yunnan, but it is a lovely tea. Totally different with some milk in it. Sweeter, smoother, heavier, two teas in one!
Smelled like baked custard, with a lilac overtone. Tasted a bit custardy and floral, then slid into baked veggie, ending with an almost asparagus taste. Second steep not much
Oh yum. This is such a good tea. Infused with pomolo peel, very heavy citrus scent, but goes through a floral, vanilla phase and ends up sweet. My husband, a very non-Oolonger really liked it
Silky Sencha, very good blending of the lemon and raspberry, no chemical whiff – an issue with me. Didn’t expect to like it as well as I did.
