271 Tasting Notes


Found a sample packet and finished the last of these lovely pearls. Sweet dusty cocoa and malt with a hint of leather.

A perfect cup, and so delicious!

Fragrant, very tasty and smooth. The spice blend is lovely with the tea base, but I would say that the most prominent spice note in scent and taste would be cloves, which is nice although a wee touch heavy. Delicious with milk, as is my preference.


i pick out a few of the cloves when i make this…works well to balance things out a little for me


I’m going to try that next time I make it. :)

I picked up a bit of this to try when passing by the store the other day, as noticed that it was from India and I have not had a green tea from there before.

Dry scent is mild and a bit grassy.

Brews a clear strong yellow color.

Brewed scent is unusually floral and wine-like.

Taste is also floral and fruity like some sort of white wine without the alcohol. Very different from other green teas I have had, and there is not much in the way of vegetal or savory notes that I can detect. This somehow seems like it should be a black tea in a way, or a cross between black and green.

It is interesting and different, and definitely unlike anything I have had before, but also not a tea I would prefer… Chinese greens are my preference.

So, I had a teaspoon or so left in my tin and decided to have it tonight as my pre-order of the new batch should be arriving the end of the week I hope…it seems to be taking awhile.

I got distracted and left the cup brewing probably over 20 minutes. (This tea is great for those times as it never seems to get bitter when over-brewed). Anyway, I put it in the microwave for 10 seconds to heat up and added a good dash of milk. And it tastes amazing!! Just like black forest cake with cherries and chocolate and whipped cream – so sweet and good!!

Now, I hope my order gets here quickly so I can have more. :)

This is a very lovely fragrant tea.

It reminds me of the Taiwanese teas I have had, with the interesting fruity and unusual spice notes that I can never describe. This one tastes more toasty though and is lighter in the fruitiness – quite delicious.

The bag I had of this disappeared so quickly it seems.

Delicately malty with light fruity and potato notes.

I love this tea anytime – a delicious treat that I always want in my cupboard!

Oh my… with milk added to the cup, this tastes exactly like chocolate malted milk candy.

Smooth, rich and creamy and velvety – so good!

A super delicious vanilla tea!!

Ha, I never thought to add milk to this one.


hehe, I love milk in black tea so usually will add it. Really good in this!

The dry leaf is so cute to look at and scoop out of the package.

Tastes of sweet potato, malt, cocoa and some spice – delicious and smooth.

Very nice!

Interesting – This immediately reminded of old books.
Dark brew. Tastes smooth and rich with spices, wood and leather.

My favorite dark pu’er sample so far.

This one is my kind of shou – sweet thick leather stonefruit. Yum! Glad you liked it!


Yes, it sort of surprised me. And I liked the subtle ‘old book’ scent somehow. :)
