A very nice surprise, I’m also an Earl Grey freak & this one hits the top 3 of my list. As TeaEqualsBliss wrote, it’s a strong black tea but you’ll be ok if you accidentally oversteep. Either a straight cup, or with honey & milk (I might get crucified for this) it’s a perfect tea to wake up in the morning or a sweet treat in the afternoon. The bergamot amount it’s perfect & tastes natural.
36 Tasting Notes
I’m new to Oolong tea, had a sampler once & I really liked it, but I would love to know how is the traditional way to drink it? Have you added any sweeteners? or milk?
thanks a lot!
I like it but expect it to be a little more mild & strong.
I’m new to this pearls, the first time I steeped too long & it was woody w/ a barely jasmine taste but the second time & used a preheated tea cup & sipped w/ the leaves still in there (I usually remove them) It was absolutely yummy, the balance between the green tea & the jasmine flowers was lovely, no sugar needed although every now & then is nice.
Soy nueva en esto de las perlas pero la segunda vez que las dejé infusionar mucho tiempo & dejé las hebras de té mientras lo tomaba (normalmente las quito) & quedó delicioso, el balance del te verde & las flores de jazmín son perfectas, no ser requiere de azucar aunque de repente se antoja un poco dulce.
I have tasted a few rooibos. This infusion is sweet, if you love figs, go for it. Nutty, you can taste all the ingredients ‘til you get to the fig flavour, it couldn’t get any better than that.
Delicious & relaxing, the clementines are big stars here. The smell is fresh. With a few drops of honey becomes such a treat.
Chamana is by far the most delicious infusions I’ve ever tried. Cantaloupe is not my favourite fruit but tasting it as an infusion was enough to love it. Perfect blend but the strongest rolls were played by cantaloupe & vervena leafs, perfect for your tummy or just a little dessert.
If you love Earl Grey, this is a must! On the top of my E. G. list. This was a gift from a friend who traveled to Rome, if you search it on the internet is a lovely old town corner, the teaware is also lovely. The flavour is AMAZING, has just the right amount of bergamot which I love, not over empowering but strong. If anyone goes to Europe is a must on your visit/tea shopping list.
I’m a sucker for raspberry. I usually get dissapointed by the very artificial flavor taste in fruity teas, but this was a little light or should I say, sutil. A good one but will continue the quest for the perfect raspberry flavor.
Found it delicios, a nice black to kick in in the morning. Some strong notes but keeping it neutral. Thanks again Rachel!
Just got a sample from my SWEET TEA, thanks Rachel! I’m an Oolong newby but I quite loved it. The almond flavor is sutil & not overempowering. The oolong tasted deliciosly woody. Any recs on some oolong teas for a beginer, preferably organic/free trade?
I had to steep it a little longer than the usual green tea, just to enhance the berries flavor. It has a nice balance depending if you like it fruity, just steep longer, if you like the green tea to predominate the berry flavor just steep less time. Delicious, there’s something magical about those patagonian berries.
Tuve que dejar reposar mas tiempo que un verde normal, justo para intensificar el sabor de las moras. Tiene un buen balance dependiendo si te gusta mas afrutado, lo dejas repostar más tiempo, si te gusta que predomine el sabor del té verde, acortas el tiempo. Delicioso, hay algo mágico en esas moras patagónicas.
