45 Tasting Notes

Had it after dinner at a restaurant, I was in doubt about it but it was nice, tried it with one sugar. Had this strong taste from the 2 black varieties that is made of & a barely but recognizable woody taste from the oolong, never crossed my mind it paired so well. The taste from the lavender & bergamot are quite nice. I want to try it again, it reminded me of the Blue Earl Grey by Tealosophy.

I’ve tasted a few pu-erh’s but they were quite astringent, sweet & without body. This tastes woody, a slightly smokey aroma & was intimidated also for the strong dark color, but even the tea becomes velvety. I’m amazed of how good Arbor Teas are. Definitely I would buy it again. Brew it for 4 min first time, rebrew it for 5 mins, tasted lighter but nice.

drank Youthberry by Teavana

although I had a cold sample in the store, when hot tasted a little bit fragant, love that’s white tea based, sweetened with a dash of honey. It’s tasty & yummy having it cold, let’s see how the second steep comes up.

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.

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.

drank Jasmine Pearls by Tealosophy
45 tasting notes

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.

Yay! Another Spanish speaker! I only just saw your reviews!

Is there much of a tea culture in Mexico? Here in Ecuador it is very rare to find someone who likes or even knows about tea! But I feel like it is catching on slooowly…

eh.mio

Hola! I feel it’s also catching slowly in Mexico, there’s a teahouse {Caravanserai} which is really nice & I heard another one recently opened I can’t wait to go & give it a try. Also there’s a tea somelier {leticiasaenz.com}that launched her line of teas, bought a flavored earl grey {I adore EG} & got some samples, I’ll let you know. How’s tea in Ecuador?

Ninavampi

Hola!!! Tea in Ecuador in near to non existent. I have been really lucky and through much searching I have managed to find a few small tea shops that sell a decent array of teas. Most I have to import or have people bring me when they come to visit.

I am hoping that the tea culture will grow, seeing as it has in other South American countries. I am all for it! : )

drank Chamana Rojo by Chamana

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.

drank Chamana Verde by Chamana
45 tasting notes

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.

I drink mostly Earl Grey. Enjoy Irish Breakfast, Darjeeling, Assam, Ceylon. Love Masala Chai, Jasmine & some greens from Japan. I like blends as long as they taste natural & are well balanced. I’m new to Oolong & Pu-erh which so far taste fantastic. Some infusions that I make on a regular basis are orange tree leaves, lemongrass, guava, apple-cinnamon-cardamom, etc.

Casi siempre bebo Earl Grey. Disfruto del Irish Breakfast, Darjeeling, Assam & Ceylon. Me encanta el Masala Chai, Jazmín & otros tés verdes del Japón. Me gustan los blends siempre & cuando el sabor sea natural & tengan un buen balance. Soy nueva con el Oolong & el Pu-erh los cuales hasta ahora me parecen fantásticos. Algunas infusiones que hago regularmente son hojas de naranjo, limón, guayaba, manzana-canela-cardamomo, etc.
