1112 Tasting Notes
I didn’t expect much from this tea just because of the size and price, but I was surprised by my findings. This is in contest for the top 10 hot steeped to chilled teas I have ever had. The blueberry pomegranate works so well with the blend of leaf that is in this tea and for the price and quantity (which does not change any rating because that is about the tea only) just blows my mind after I’ve tried many fruity oolongs that don’t taste that good when chilled.
This is a desert chai for sure! The chai taste is sweet and not spicy just as been said, but knowing that is important because this accompanies milk and whip cream very well with the caramel taste already added. For a desert chai this is great, I suppose the sugar content could be decreased and replaced with spice but it would lose it’s identity in a way. I didn’t taste any salt flavoring though which is fine with me.
This is one of the worst green teas I have ever bought a large quantity of… but, it makes the best soup broth for any Asian styled soup you’d like to create.
Marking this as a coconut green tea is very deceptive because it’s really lemon grass and green tea (with maybe some coconut and ginger).
Oolong with peach, count me in!
This tea has more of an apricot flavoring than a peach, but it isn’t sold as a peach oolong so that is understandable. I really enjoy this tea because it is very comforting on an oolong tea taste as well as having a strong fruit taste as well. The oolong that is used is quality as well which was nice to see and taste. I didn’t notice the almond taste (which I am thankful for), which may be the only downside to this tea for anyone who would want to purchase/try it.
I bought three ginseng oolongs to compare and this one was the best of them all, however I still find it to be a bit dry. There are pieces of licorice root in this tea that wasn’t in the others that adds a more woodsy taste and I really enjoyed that. The way that Simply Spa packages tea is very fitting for this tea- if you ever buy it you will know what I mean!
This was my first aged Oolong!
Everything about this tea was faint and subtle: smell, liquor, and taste.
While it was a wonderful tea, I just wanted something that was more distinguishable as something that sets it apart from other teas- in this case being an aged oolong from 1991.
This was a Christmas tea for me!
The smell is very strong and easily identifiable. The leaf isn’t the best quality so it’s advised to only steep this once, but the taste is enjoyable for the one cup you would make.
I enjoy this tea time to time, there is a lot of it in a tin, and the tin is quite a beautiful touch to the overall appearance.
The tin is beautiful and I enjoyed their milk oolong (white moon) so I purchased this tea; what a mistake. This tea must have been processed wrong with the bergamot oil because it left the mouth feeling as if it was stung by something small.
I have purchased this chai multiple times because it is popular among my friends. This chai is one of the strongest chais I have tasted so far. I am not sure if this product has changed in the last few years since the last reviews, but this product is absolutely amazing. Adjusting the flavor by powder to water (or milk) is very simple and provides a variety of strength for other drinkers.
