19 Tasting Notes
Second steep + 1/4 Golden Bi Luo by Chicago Tea Garden for 1 min
Pretty strong sweet caramel smell. Has a strong malty and bitter flavor. Hardly any aftertaste.
Has a dark, almost “blunt” taste – tastes good when complimented with cookies, but only mediocre when by itself. Might be good with honey to lighten the flavor.
A pretty strong malty smell. Flavor is still malty, but not nearly as strong, and has more of a bitter taste. Aftertaste is surprisingly sweet, and lingers only for a few seconds.
Actually a bit better than I expected, though I would still like to try it with honey or something for the second steep. Enjoyable.
Has a somewhat strong jasmine “leafy” smell. Very unoffensive taste. Little to no aftertaste.
A fairly bland and generic jasmine tea, gets the job done without being too fancy or obtrusive (which is certainly not a bad thing); soothing and relaxing. Maybe try with honey for a bit more flavor?
A sweet, full (malty?) smell. Has an almost “candied” taste, though more of a caramel flavor than just sweet; similar to sweet potatoes? A bit of a malty aftertaste.
Malty flavor is quick to overwhelm when drinking too fast. Needs something to go with it; would be good with cookies or muffins, or mixed down with a more bitter black tea.
Very little smell. Extremely unobtrusive, subtle bitter taste. A bitter aftertaste that lasts about a second (at most).
Relaxing. Unobtrusive. Good for when I want to focus on doing something else, and not about the taste of my tea. Almost too easy to drink.
