Recent Tasting Notes
Smells wonderfully, like a high quality lemon custard.
The foreground taste is solid base black tea, very malty. Lemon notes are in the back, rather subdued, they just compliment the tea itself.
When it gets colder, the lemon notes remain in the background. There is no advertised creaminess nor freshness.
The tea is not bad, but is different than I expected.
Flavors: Custard, Earth, Lemon, Malt
Strong, sweetish smell of mango.
The taste is at first a bit disappointing. The tea seems watery, both the base sencha and mango are barely discernible. But when it gets colder, it becomes much more intense, fruity and refreshing. Probably a great choice for cold brew.
Flavors: Fruity, Grass, Mango
Straw, slightly herbal and a bit toasty aroma.
Solid bitterness, toasty, herbal and flowery flavours.
Not exactly my cup of tea (pun intended), but I really appreciate the richness and uniqueness.
Flavors: Flowers, Herbs, Straw, Toasty
Malty, earthy, deeply fermented aroma.
Raisins, nuts, chocolate in taste, but all in all the tea is rather watery, not rich enough.
May be good with milk, but on its own it’s quite disappointing.
Flavors: Chocolate, Earth, Malt, Nuts, Raisins
Strong malty and earthy aroma with hints of honey.
Strong taste, quite earthy and malty, very low bitterness and astringency, slight nutty notes.
Solid black tea with very focused taste, not aromatic.
Flavors: Earth, Honey, Malt, Nuts
Yunnan green superior is great tea at any time of the day.
We mainly feel flowery flavours. There is also realy nice bitternes and some light astringency.
Personaly I like to have pair this tea with some fruits (eg peach or pinaple).
Ha, I thought I had tried this one before! But since I’ve been craaavvviiing milk oolong for a while, and this was from my swap with Lynne-tea… I totally felt justified in drinking some. Still have enough left for another cup, too!
Anyhow, this is a yummy milk oolong, as I said previously. It has likely lost some flavour, but I’m still quite enjoying it. A big bonus here is a complete lack of that “flavoured” taste that comes through with some milky oolongs. Not to say that this one isn’t flavoured, but it doesn’t have that accompanying chemical taste, which is perfect.
Couldn’t find a listing for this one, Lynne-tea, so I made one! Let me know if this is in the wrong place.
So I stumbled across a milk oolong in my pile from Lynne-tea, and as I haven’t had one in a while, it sounded very appetizing to brew some up… soooo I did!
The cup smells incredibly caramelly (like Milk-fuls?) and delicious, and the flavour is similar, leaving the mouth with an intense caramelized milk flavour after swallowing. Heavenly. I have no idea if this one is “flavoured” or not, but it’s lovely. Milk oolongs are so wonderful :D
Thanks so much, Lynne-tea!
