105 Tasting Notes
ok, im a little surprised by the current ratings but maybe the other (10+) teas i tried with this with werent all that good that is why this one stood out (with a couple others)
it is sweet and tasted fine enough while warm. it didnt get to the cool stage because i brewed only small samples haha
but this is good. thanks Kasumi for this sample! wanting to try other plum oolongs :)
For the record, this is my first ever milk oolong. And I am not (yet) a fan of green tea (coz it easily gets bitter when I steep it) or the vegetal taste (tho I like matcha and jasmine tea).
BUT this…tastes a bit vegetal..and it is buttery….oh so buttery! From the scent it exudes upon steeping up to the nth steep that I was able to squeeze out of it. I love it so! I imagine I can be happy drinking this for days on end.
color: lighter than the regular matcha
so this is my first matcha. well one of the 3 that i tried all at the same time (in small portions tho)
for me, it is pretty good and leaves me excited to try other flavored matchas! but the flavor of a good unflavored one (Davids Matcha Matsu) also makes me want to explore the other side too!
oh happy day! it kinda makes up for not getting any tea in the mail today :)
gotta say this about matcha: a little goes a long way!
thank you TC for adding this to the swap! and for the good-sized amount of it too :)
so i could not wait for a whisk anymore and decided to jump in so i will no longer be a matcha virgin
got 3 small rubbermaid containers that are as big (or small) as my tasting teacups
and tasted this together with Teavana Imperial Grade Matcha and an Organic Mint Matcha
i used water right out of the dispenser (neither cold nor warm) coz i did not want any bitterness but neither did i want to mask the taste with coolness.
this has a pleasant taste! the first time i tried it was at a DT shop in SFO and all i got was bitterness but my aunt liked it enough to buy some.
so glad i did it right the first time!
there is a sweet undertone that makes you want to drink it more :)
thanks to Nathalie for sending me this in a swap!
