5 Tasting Notes
Has a very naturally sweet fresh aroma and thin spiny black and cream dry leaves.
I brewed it at 85 c until it was a clear light gold colour. The tea itself has an incredibly delicate and refreshing flavour, with an aroma of sweet dried fruit that fills the nose nicely.
Flavour started to diminish at the 7th infusion, and soon gave up at the 9th.
Flavors: Dried Fruit, Floral, Sweet
Got a free 10 gram sample of this on my last tea order (What-cha FTW),
And was quite excited as I’ve only ever had greens from Australia so thought this would be quite interesting.
After brewing the 1st infusion for about 30-45 seconds it had an incredibly sweet, malty, yeast flavour that reminded me a lot of the drink Horlicks.
After a couple more infusions it got a bit less malty and developed a slightly bitter cinnamon molasses taste that I found more enjoyable.
The brew itself has a very zesty orange colour, and the smell is like a very sweet molasses. the leaves were a little more broken than I expected but I got about 5-6 infusions out of just 5 grams of them which I was quite happy with.
While I usually prefer more refreshing black teas this was still quite a nice brew,
And would recommend to any one that enjoys very strong, sweet, malty teas.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Malt, Sweet, Yeast
Took a gamble and bought 6 of these cakes and I’m very impressed with the results,
First 1-3 infusions had a very smooth honey and rose taste, and the infusions after that got a definite sweet chocolatey taste as described.
After finished drinking it left a very mellow aftertaste without any dryness left on the tongue. Definitely a favourite black tea of the tea drinkers in my family and it being in a sealed cake is a nice convenience.
Flavors: Honey, Honeysuckle, Rose
As a I have recently become a big fan of the P.T Harendong tea estate, I was very excited to try this tea and I am not disappointed at all with the results.
After doing a quick rinse of the leaves to wake them up a bit, a brewed it for about 45 seconds then poured it into my porcelain zen monk tea cup.
Although quite a seemingly pale infusion it didn’t lack any flavour and was quite a refreshing and incredibly clean tasting tea as described.
After around four or five infusions in it seemed to have a smooth sweetness develop to it that was still quite enjoyably clean tasting.
Overall I would recommend this tea to someone that wants quite a refreshing dependable green tea that isn’t particularly grassy, PLUS the fact that its organic is always a bonus.
Flavors: Alcohol, Fig, Floral, Smooth
I find this to be an incredibly warming and relaxing tea which is why I usually drink it in the evenings.
It seems to have a slight damp wood taste and a very subtle sweetness to it that I always love in dark teas,
and Although Its very thick tasting tea it doesn’t seem to be sickly at all.
I very much like pattern and colours of the wrapper and it seemed quite easy to pry apart the cake itself with a dirk that I recently ordered from Teaware.house
All in all, this is definitely one of my favourite ripe dark teas I’ve had so far and would recommend it to anyone who wants quite a substantial ripe dark tea.
Flavors: Autumn Leaf Pile, Earth
