116 Tasting Notes
Hot – nice light smooth fruity flavor. not much more to say about it since it was discontinued.
Iced – my wife was not happy about this being discontinued. We had to go and restock b/c she asked me to make her it Iced every day. She is not a tea drinking but she loved this. We normally just had it with no sugar and it was good. but the last time we added a little sugar and it was great. the sugar made all of the favors pop.
I think it is important to try a tea couple of times before you comment on it. For me this tea is a prefect example of why i say this.
As i have said before, green tea is not my favorite. When i first started drinking this tea i did not like it at all b/c i felt it was way to grassy for me. i made it a couple more times and could not finish the cup. Each time making it differently so that i could try to get it to good for me. It was way to grassy for me.
Well i did. It is still not my favorite tea but it is okay. It is grassy. It is a smooth grassy taste. If you are a green taste drinker then you will probably like this tea.
this has a wet grass smell. I think this is okay. I am not a huge green tea fan. I do not really care for the grassy taste But this Green Pekoe does not have a strong grass taste. it does not really have mush of a flavor. I think this is good for someone who does not really like green tea or need a stepping stone to green tea.
this was my first pu-erh. I saw it at Whole Foods, and figured i would give it a try. i liked it. it is earthy. I like that it as a strong flavor. It is nice to have them as little discs. When i am at work (or at home) and i do not want to measure out a teaspoon of tea, it is nice to put this out and know you have the correct amount of tea.
I needed some tea to keep at work. So the other day I went to Whole Foods and got some of this Wuyi. I am writing this as I taste it, so this is my first thoughts.
Smell – honestly… it smells bad.
First Taste – taste bad. very smooth.
Next Couple of sips – getting more of a smoky, light almond taste.
not bad but not good… i probably will not buy this again.
By looking at the color of the steeped water, you would think that this tea had very little favor. But after smelling and tasting the tea, you get a burst of pear flavor. The one thing i do not like about this tea is the very sweet after taste. I feel like i just had a sweet tart. I thought that this would be good iced b/c of the sweetness but the flavor of the tea was to light when it was iced.
