291 Tasting Notes
When I opened the bag, the tea didn’t appear as green as I thought it should of been. This is my first type of kamairicha, so I didn’t know what to expect. The look of it reminded me of some Chinese greens I’ve had. I read on the description it’s higher flamed, which was to produce more juicy flavor, I am interested.
I followed the instructions given by Yuuki-cha on how to brew. This tea is freaking amazing! So much depth, unami, savory like quality. The dry leaf smell is soooo yummy, reminds me of a bowl of buttered greens or potato chips.
I can’t really compare it to anything else I’ve tasted. Reviewers on the Yuuki-cha says their taste of coconut, too. I agree.
I have deleted my rating since after some searching, and after attempting to rebrew, I realized this is FLAVORED with milk flavoring. I looked on the website of DavidsTea, and looked at the ingredients, and saw this:
Chinese oolong tea from the Wuyi Mountains, natural flavouring*.
*For flavouring information consult our FAQ.
I noticed I couldn’t rebrew it while the flavors improved. For the cost, I expected a better quality. I’ve only had one other milk oolong before, and had amazing 8 rebrews from it, each one pumped with creamy flavor. Not with this “milk” oolong.
I DO NOT recommend this tea, as it’s a fake, and not worth the price.
I had some Turkish tea on Turkish Airlines, and I was trying to figure out which tea they served on it. I was told at the Istanbul Airport this was close to it. This tea was for sure not it. I did not like this tea. It had a light smoky flavor, which is something I do not like in tea. I haven’t had that much Turkish tea, so I don’t know how it’s suppose to taste. I was not a fan of this.
