1118 Tasting Notes
Thank you to Angel at Teavivre for these samples
I didn’t realize that I had sampled this tea already!
I hope I have this in the correct listing
This was a smooth, fresh green oolong. It is buttery and vegetal but not overwhelmingly so. The resteep seems to be creamier and even more delicious
Thank you for the samples Angel at Teavivre!
With the name “charcoal baked” I was expecting something really smokey and “heavy”. This roasted oolong was smoother and sweeter than I was expecting. It isn’t as roasted tasting as I was expecting either. These are all good things because I found this tea to be very enjoyable. The first steep had mineral notes which decreased a little in the resteep.
The brewing parameters suggest 6 minutes which I thought was a little long but I went with it anyway since they have never steered me wrong yet! I think the mineral notes might not be as strong if brewed a little shorter though, or maybe a rinse.
Ewww…i tried this as a cold brew since I have been doing all my herbals that way lately. Since creme caramel rooibos turned out well as a cold brew, I though his would be ok too. I was wrong, so very wrong. It is WAY too sweet and just…yuck.
