27 Tasting Notes
I’ve heard of Cherry Blossom season in East Asia and about the beautiful festivals. I believe it’s around this time of year so i thought it would be perfect to snag one of these and try it out. As all the other reviews say, GREAT balance. With two or more distinct flavors I think it’s key to get a good balance between them and this tea does so in a great way. Sweet and tarty mixed with a great floral scent, for a split second, you feel like you’re experiencing the Cherry Blossom festival first hand. Loving the balance of flavors and would recommend this tea to everyone to at least try and judge for yourself, especially if you’re a fan of cherry blossom tea. The best one I’ve tried so far.
Delicious, smooth, creamy, flavorful. There are many words to describe this tea but I’m having trouble finding the perfect one that describes all of these wonderful flavors. I agree with some of the other reviews that I was a bit nervous and worried as to how all of these flavors would blend together but it does masterfully. I love a good oolong and let me say, this is a good oolong. Silk, that’s the word :)
I found this EG to be quite delightful. The hint of bergamot adds a great quality and scent to this tea that is quite refreshing. I usually enjoy my EG’s with some milk and sugar but this one I found to be quite good on its own as well. If you’re a fan of EG’s you should consider this tea, it might just become your favorite.
I read the reviews for this tea and had a good laugh and thought to myself, “it can’t be THAT bad can it?” For a tea that was this unanimously disliked, I should have trusted my fellow steepsters. After drinking a cup I felt almost ashamed of myself for trying it. Tartness and citrus to the max. I reviewed Tazo’s passion fruit tea last week and thought that was too sour. If you’re into this kind of taste, be my guest but be cautious and make sure to read all the reviews to get a better idea of what you’re buying.
Serves as a great tea for jolting your senses but the overwhelming flavor was too strong for my taste. I appreciate the aroma and tons of flavor in each sip, but I prefer lighter tasting teas. If you love strong, bold, spiced flavors then this tea is perfect for you.
