328 Tasting Notes
I have liked teas from this region of Ceylon. This just didn’t do it for me. Way too astringent for my liking. Was similar to a CTC cut for the tea…I am wondering if that is why it’s so bitter. I am sure this tea would be great with cream and sugar, but to me that’s a sign of a poor tea. I will probably use the rest to make chai with.
Flavors: Bitter, Sour
I am to the last of my samples, and I know exactly what I want to rebuy from What-Cha. This is one of the teas that I’ll want more of. It just hit the spot yesterday at work. Floral, brisk, levels of flavor. Astringent yet coy sweetness. I brewed at 3 minutes, and I wouldn’t do a second more. Next time I might do 2 minutes.
Excellent Ceylon, and one of the best I’ve had from the region. Glad to read it’s fair trade! Makes me happy to support a company like this!!!
Cinnamon raisin, medium toasted. That’s what this tea tastes like to me. So rich and tasty. Sweet, no astringency.
Again, I am sucker for black teas with a raisin description. I have no idea, I hate actual raisins. But I just LOVE it as a flavor profile. I will easily go through my sample, and would buy again.
I really love the raw dry leaf scent from this. Coming off just having a milk oolong, I smell similarities. Buttered spinach. Veggie goodness!
This reminds me of a Sencha Karigane. There’s just a slight roasted taste to it than a sencha. A very easy to drink drink. I followed the brewing instructions to the T. I have only had another Korean tea. I know I will want to try more!
Flavors: Butter, Spinach
I am on my 8th rebrew and it’s still strong. The dry leaf smell is intense and so buttery. I had the other milk oolong What-cha had, and I prefer this one. I know there’s extra flavoring, but it’s so good!!! It’s like buttery spinach in a cup. I taste the butter popcorn others noted. Excellent milk oolong, probably one of the best I’ve had.
I got this free with my Black Friday order. I can’t believe I just had this hidden away. That happens to a lot of us tea addicts! I’m blown away by how tasty this was! I am on 5th rebrew. It just keeps producing tastiness. It’s not too dark and oxidized. I actually prefer this over the milk oolong. I followed eastkyteaguy’s gong fu brewing timing. It was perfection!
I am really loving What-cha’s Vietnamese tea offerings.
Out of their Earl Grey influenced teas, I liked this one the best. Easy everyday, early morning wake up tea! Just perfect for the spring that’s coming soon (it’s less than a month away!!) It’s just a hint of floral, kind of creamy tasting. Might try to have it iced. On the fence of ordering again. Glad I tried it!!!
I grew up on Good Earth Sweet & Spicy. My parents probably helped bring it outside of California when it first came from the Good Earth restaurant chain back in the 80’s This tea didn’t stand out for me since it reminds me of a dulled out orange spiced tea a la Good Earth Sweet & Spciy. It’s just ok to me, maybe since I get spice overload when I make my own chai, too.
