4847 Tasting Notes
This is one of my favorite green teas. I love the way rose and jasmine work together in a blend. The lemon myrtle is very light and does not impose upon the floral essences, and the laurel provides an interesting balance to the cup. It’s a very relaxing and restorative cup … just what I need after (starting) to clean my art studio (what a mess!)
I just submitted a review of this tea to the Tea Review Blog, although, like before, I don’t know when it will be published.
I really like this tea – it is very good, especially given that it’s a bagged tea. The ginger is warm but not overly spicy, and there is a pleasant fruit note to it that gives it an agreeable balance. It is one that I look forward to serving iced too – it doesn’t lose its flavor as it cools.
A nice, soft citrus aroma. I think the next time I brew this tea, I will cut down on the steep time, as there is a bit of bitterness to the cup. Not an overpowering bitterness, but it’s there and does interfere a bit with the tangerine flavor, so I think I’ll wait to write my review of this tea a bit so that I can experiment with the brewing first.
Brewed my second infusion of these leaves. I actually brought the water to a boil this time as I wasn’t standing over the kettle to monitor it, so I allowed the tea to cool a bit before adding it to the leaves (I generally will pour the boiling water into a cool teapot, and wait a minute, and I find that this cools the water enough to add to this greener Oolong).
The flavor of the second infusion is very much like the first. Perhaps a little more vegetative quality.
I don’t sweeten this tea – doesn’t need it! Save the sweetener for flavored teas! This one is perfect!
My daily cup of Oolong. I love this!
I just submitted my review of this tea for the Tea Review Blog, although I don’t know when it will be published. The flavor is much like a green tea – fresh and bright, but with delightful, sweet buttery notes as well. Lovely mouthfeel.
I think that this just might be my favorite tea from Narien that I’ve tried thus far.
I wrote a review for this tea which appears at the Tea Review Blog (http://www.teareviewblog.com). I am really enjoying this tea. Right now, my favorite way to drink it – and the way I’m drinking it now – is with a bit of raw sugar and the tiniest pinch of salt.
No, I don’t ordinarily add a pinch of salt to my tea, but, with this tea, it seems to bring out the flavor of the cashew nicely as well as cuts through some of the sweeter notes of the white chocolate. I like white chocolate, but I sometimes find it just a bit too sweet.
Overall a very nice flavored black tea.
