30 Tasting Notes
Not for me. I like a good peat smoke scotch so I was thinking I’d like this tea but no go. Very strong smoked smell that is hard to get past. The actual tea tasted ok but I can’t get past the smell to enjoy it.
24 days of tea #2. Overall I like this tea but I expected more of a chocolate taste but I like the raspberry kind of sweetness. I’ve figured out what the “rocket” part of the name is about, wow this tea has some stimulant hit. I got all my housework done after two cups of this :D.
This is tea #1 in my 24 days of tea advent calendar. I’m normally a black tea drinker so I looked forward to this one. I wasn’t disappointed. It smells great and tastes good. It’s a little sweet for me but I like that it is low caffeine which will make it a good evening tea.
I forgot to make some tea this morning and it’s “roll up the rim” time so I thought I’d give it a shot. Not super impressed, to me it tastes like a cup of Red Rose. Not a lot of flavour and fairly bitter. The smell turns me off, it doesn’t smell like good tea, it kind of smells like feet. Maybe I just got a bad one.
My first oolong and it was very different than I expected. I figured it would be closer to a black tea but it was more like a green tea. A nice flowery aroma and a sweet taste that is very relaxing. Near the end of the cup it got a bit of a tangy grassy taste but never bitter. Definitely be back for more.
Meh. It wasn’t what I was expecting. It tasted like I brewed up some fresh grass clippings.
I find I like Chinese greens better than Japanese and this one didn’t disappoint. Surprisingly little “green tea” flavour and with an interesting finish. I’d almost call it a little bit of a spiciness as it’s swallowed. First cup I steeped for 3:30 and it was ok, second I steeped for 5 minutes. 5 minutes still had the spicy flavour and added more of the “green tea” flavour without adding much bitterness.
Good but not amazing. The taste for me falls between English breakfast and Kenyan Tindret. I think I expected too much from this tea but I’ll see how I feel after I finish the 25g I have.
My go to morning tea. Good malty/earthy flavor with a little bitterness and a nice caffeine pick me up.
