647 Tasting Notes


I keep wanting to call this Black Pearls. It has a nice chocolate scent (that could also be my kitchen, as I just made cakes). The flavour is a bit towards the mildly sweet hot cocoa side. Not overly strong, just delicious.

I know, I should have let them send me more.

I got this as part of my Giveaway Sampler. The golden tipped leaves are rather pretty. And I get a lovely aroma of sweet potatoes both from the dry leaves and the brew. There seems to be more honey in the flavour, but I do get the potato as well. It seems to have hints of nuts too. Thanks Teavivre for being so good at picking my teas.

Flavors: Honey, Nuts, Sweet Potatoes

From my first actual Teavivre order. I like osmanthus, but I’ve not had it as an oolong yet. The scent is nicely floral, a bit of honeysuckle perhaps. As for flavour, creamy, and sweet. I do taste the osmanthus, as well as the grassy oolong.

Flavors: Floral, Honeysuckle, Osmanthus

I’ve decided this an oolong weekend. This one smells floral, and a little green. It has a smooth, sweet flavour, more towards the floral side.

This smells pretty nice, it’s sweet and mildly fruity. I get honey and some grape in the flavour, and some light floral notes. (The leaves are really pretty too.)

White Tiger Oolong… It smells so good. I get a nice scent of fresh peaches. The apricot comes out more in the flavour. Overall, a good summer blend.

Flavors: Apricot, Peach

I got the last time I was able to visit a store location. It smells nicely green, and natural. In a way that makes me want salad from the natural foods store. There is a light, and creamy vegetal flavour. For something I got on a whim, it turned out well.

I’ve either not had enough green teas lately, or too much oolong. Because this kinda smells like oolong. The flavour is light, and very vegetal. It makes me want wakame soup.

Not sure who sent me this, I moved around some things in my stash. This smells really nice. Like mangoes and spices. Perhaps it is better to have this cold, but it does taste like a lassi. Certainly has a good mango flavour.

Flavors: Cardamon, Mango
