Sweetly milky, without adding either milk or sugar. Would make a nice dessert tea. Soporific effects. Quite plain but pleasant.
42 Tasting Notes
Very subtle tastes of honey and a bit of caramel, with no bitterness to speak of. Nice tea to pair with cookies.
Really unique flavor, but it dries your mouth out. If only the osmanthus flavor were stronger…still, it’s a thoroughly interesting tea.
Perfect blend of mint and tea, without either flavor overpowering the other. Not drying like other mint teas sometimes are, and doesn’t turn bitter.
Strongly flowery tea, like walking through a garden. Bitter and drying at first, but by the second or third brew, this is gone.
Smells better than it tastes. Lavender isn’t quite strong enough to drown out the oolong. Not awful, but not my absolute favorite.
Delicate strawberry taste layered over a fairly strong oolong (so you don’t have to be a strawberry lover). Probably very good cold, though I didn’t get a chance to try it.
Amazing lychee flavor, high quality oolong, stands up well to several brews. Somehow flowery also. Very yummy, not too sweet.
Part of my twelve days of oolong series: http://www.thatpourgirltea.com/2010/04/twelve-days-of-oolong-day-1.html
Refreshingly juicy blueberries, slightly sweetened, perfect for summer.
Water that tastes vaguely like mint. Somehow bitter. Don’t bother picking up the bottle.
Sweet & grassy, spring in a cup. Can’t wait to try it iced and/or use it in baking.
Not too sweet or too bitter, fantastic with ginger syrup, soothes the stomach, and seems like it can do no wrong.
Richly fruity, tastes like slightly tart blackberries, sweet enough not to need sugar without being overly sweet.
Bitterly strong green tea and nothing else. Perhaps 2 minutes 45 is too long? Added sugar, still bitter. Where is my stevia leaf and plums and strawberries and roses? Disappointing, as I am not a green tea fan.
Take 2: 60 seconds of brewing and still not that impressive. Primarily green tea; the plum’s too shy to come out of the background.
A garden of roses in a cup: nice, sweet, simple. Doesn’t need additional sweetener, as it has stevia in it already. Refreshing and drinking it feels a bit like falling in love. Slight hint of mint at the end of the sip.
Mostly jasmine, with peach and berries hiding in the background. Cheek-suckingly tart. Smells better than it tastes.
Heavy on the green tea flavor, lighter on the peach flavor, strong floral finish. Not bad, but not mind blowing.
Disappointingly sour: I might have oversteeped, but it’s also old (as in, no longer made). Smelled like cinnamon and apples, but lacked much taste besides sour.
