Used more leaf, less water than I usually would. Has a taste largely unlike other green teas. It’s somewhat savory, but hard to describe. It tastes like a food I’ve had. And also a little like genmaicha. It almost has a note of caramel but without the sticky sweetness. Its a nice, almost woody version of that taste.
This is a very interesting white tea! It has many different taste notes…very complex and somewhat paradoxical. Of course, it has a base of the classic gentle white tea flavor. But the schizandra brings a tangy edge to it that I haven’t seen in many teas. It has an herbal smell to it, almost peppery. But the taste and feel of the tea is something totally new to me as an American. It is very slightly tart with a subtle sweetness. I’m really not sure how to describe the taste of the schizandra, so I recommend you try it for yourself!
Only my second experience with jasmine, and I don’t drink much green tea otherwise, so I don’t have much to compare this to, other than A&D’s Damn Fine version. I wish I’d tried this first to get a proper opinion, because right now all I can think is that I just don’t like it as much.
The taste is a bit milder, and a bit less sweet. There is a flavor coming across that I can’t quite put my finger on… not altogether unpleasant, just different. Not a bad cup, just nothing that wows me.
My first early morning cup in quite some time… Had to cut back on caffeine for awhile. I got up, filled the kettle, sat down and waited for the whistle. And waited. And waited.
You know what helps the kettle boil? Turning on the burner. Yeah… this cup couldn’t have come soon enough.
Not nearly as dark as it appeared yesterday, but still a good color. After adding sugar, I’m getting a distinct honey-like taste… which is interesting. I had to go back and make sure I knew which tea I’d actually brewed, because this morning’s cup seems completely different from the last. Yummy, just the same.
Part of the Indian tea sampler. (The Adagio black sampler taught me that I prefer Indian over Chinese, now I’ll learn which Indian tea I prefer. Good deal.)
I’ll have to remember to use one of my white cups next time, because the color coming out of the teapot spout looked much darker and more red than I’m used to, and I’d really like to see it. The flavor was very rich, very smooth and pretty malty. I’m a fan.
