drank Oriental Beauty by Man Cha Teas
23 tasting notes

Followed Man Chas instructions (3g/250ml, 30s/40s/45s/etc. Smooth, lots of mouthfeel early on, strong flavor of dark honey, not saccharine sweet though, w/ molasses and dark malt initially. Hints of honeysuckle/lilac, apricots, sweet potato. Developing over the pours to a slightly more tannic mouthfeel, showing it’s Oolong roots on the nose more as the rounds go on. Leaves show a nice oxidation on the boarders once opened, a tea that looks like it was made with care and knowledge. Possibly too sweet for some but perfect on a cool fall afternoon in Massachusetts. Will be buying more to stash.

Flavors: Apricot, Dates, Honey, Honeysuckle, Malt, Sweet Potatoes, Walnut

Flavors. Must. Find. New. Flavors. Tea is relatively new for me, so I am still in the training wheel stages but so far, I am loving it. I am well versed in medicinal herbs and my pallet likes to be challenged.

I work in the natural products industry but my education and background is in photography (BFA from MassArt.) Because of my job I am connected loosely (or on occasion directly connected) to many artisan tea companies including Mem Tea Imports out of Boston, Rishi Tea, Pukka Herbs, Man Cha Teas, Imports through Mountain Rose Herbs, Aiya Matcha, Jade Leaf, Numi Tea, Organic India, Gaia Herbs, and more.
