17 Tasting Notes
I didn’t have any high expectations with Harmony, to be honest. I just can’t get used to the ‘nutty’ flavor, although I think that has to do more with my mature taste then anything else. It’s not bad, it’s just that it doesn’t taste like green tea (which can be a good thing for those who are not too fond of tea in general).
For best results, I suggest preparing it strong at ~1.5tsp per 8oz.
Although only slightly more expensive then Monk’s Choice, it is drastically different in taste. It’s creamy and I can defiantly taste a fruity overtone of some sort, but it lacks full-bodied/grassy taste that I’ve become fond of. When I steeped it in my new glass infuser I was really surprised how green it actually was.
My local Whole Foods (in Erie, PA) has this in a jar labeled “Oolong Black Tea.” It’s not very descriptive, but with a little bit of research I think this is actually Oriental Beauty.
Oriental Beauty is considered to be one of the darker Oolong teas available, but it is just too dark for my tastes.
