162 Tasting Notes
I’m not usually into coconut, but this sounded interesting, so I’m giving it a try.
I’m detecting the following:
pre-steep scent – coconut
Steeped scent – vanilla, coconut
Taste – coconut mostly, vanilla, and also something that reminds me of butterscotch. Very flavorful tea. I like it quite a bit more iced than hot.
This tea smells like milk chocolate and honey, with maybe a hint of molasses, and basically tastes the same. Has a little bit of an aftertaste with a faint tanginess to it that kind of reminds me of green grapes. I prefer this with a short steep time and lower temperature. Good taste and great price makes this a good Yunnan for every day use.
Smells pretty vegetal, like boiled greens. I don’t detect a lot of that on taste though. Kind of roasty and rich compared to other similar oolongs I’ve had. One of the better ones in fact; I’m really enjoying each sip. It is reasonably priced at the time of this review. This is something I could drink on a regular basis…note to self: I need to revisit this now that it has been several years since I wrote this review and my taste has been refined.
I was going to wait awhile to review this one, but the bag smelled so good I couldn’t resist. Before adding water, it smells like really good oatmeal cookies. Steeped smell is cinnamon and pumpkin. On taste I get the same, and it’s pretty well balanced. After I was halfway done drinking it I added milk and a little sugar. With milk the pumpkin taste is a little stronger. This is really good. The best home made chai latte I’ve had thus far actually.
