892 Tasting Notes
I ordered this a long time ago and it got pushed to the back of my tea cupboard. Well, here we go, now I’m trying it!
I steeped it for 10 minutes hoping to bring out some spectacular strawberry flavour.
The strawberry flavour isn’t near as strong as I thought it would be. I am getting creamy notes.
This tea is much better iced than hot, and I am thinking that a cold brew might bring out the strawberry flavour a bit more, I will try that next time.
I needed a gong-fu tea tasting today, so I tried it with this tea. I followed Teavivre’s parameters:7 steeps: rinse,25s,35s,45s,55s,65s,75s,85s.
I found this green oolong to be buttery, slightly vegetal but not overpowering. I found it fruity and slightly sweet, just as the description states.
Overall, I am glad that I ordered a sample of this tea and ejoyed it.
I have had this sample for a long time and just getting around to it now!
I used the whole sample package for my cup. This tea smells amazingly sweet and like a fresh meadow with flowers and honeybees.
The taste is very smooth, sweet, mostly floral with just a tinge of vegetal notes.
Resteep: boiling, 3min. The sweetness has really decreased and more of the TGY vegetal notes are coming through. This is wonderful and delicious.
I am really enjoying this tea. I love how oolongs taste so creamy and smooth, but aren’t “heavy” if ya know what I mean. Like a special treat.
