Recent Tasting Notes
I haven’t had this particular dragonwell before but there’s no mistaking those distinctive flat, jade-green leaves, and also no mistaking that distinctive slightly malty, slightly roasted sort of flavour. I don’t have my tea thermometer with me, so I let the water cool for five minutes before steeping for three minutes, and it turned out very well.
This is a really good white tea. I wondered if it would be similar to the Green Darjeeling I have at home, but it’s turned out to be very much a white tea in taste without any of the malty edge of the Green Darjeeling. It has good flavour and is significantly less delicate than Silver Needle, but not quite as robust as Pai Mu Tan. This is a sweet, smooth and lovely white tea, definitely one that I’d buy more of.
I’m not feeling this one and it’s my second time trying it. Any tea that has a description of “smelling of crab” should have thrown up the good ole warning flag. And I get it…there is a faint crab…err, krab smell.
There is a natural sweetness to this tea, but the sharp veggie dryness kills it. I’m glad this tea was part of a free sample pack…I would never re-order it. As a matter of fact, this tin will probably go into the drawer of misfit teas and wait until it can be swapped.
Any takers for the krab tea?
I’m leaving the rest of this with my friend when I move on to the next part of my holiday tomorrow, so I thought I’d better have some more while I could. I’ve belatedly remembered that I used to really like Twinings’ chamomile and spearmint, and Foxtrot is very reminiscent of that. Just, you know, better. I hate to say it, but I think that’s because of the rooibos.
I’ve been seeing TeaEqualsBliss rave about this tea for a while now, so I added it to my list of teas to try while I’m over here. Just coming to the end of the first cup now, and I can see what all the fuss is about. I generally don’t go for rooibos or even rooibos blends very much, but this is a great mix. The fresh taste of the mint is present from the first sip right through to the aftertaste, but I can really feel the hit of chamomile as well. And yeah, the rooibos needs to be there, too, because it sort of brings everything together. So sad that I can’t get this at home, because I’d really like to give it a permanent place in my tea cupboard.
Love the little “balls” of tea, especially when they unfold. Something about that just makes it taste better… ESPECIALLY when steeped in a traditional teapot (something I definitely don’t do enough of). There’s a few different types of Oolong Jasmine, they all taste almost the same, with some subtle differences. This is a lighter Jasmine, not as much flavor of the flower, but more of a mix between Jasmine and Oolong. Still very good though.
