230 Tasting Notes
At first sip this tea was worth getting a little to take home.
It all started with rescuing a friend she was having some car trouble and was late getting to an Arbonne party so I picked her up and took her to the party… that is when I discovered some car trouble of my own… After her party and after the rad issue was delt with we popped over to Davids Tea and this was one of the samples for today. OMG! delish! I think it will be come my crutch on days I need a wake-up kick in the pants.
I can’t wait for that morning to arrive because this was a delish sample! And my 50g is sitting in my cupboard teasing me!
This hot raspberry coloured tea is great iced, though I think it would have gotten a better response if I had asked for “a hit of agave” because the first sip reminded me of Cherry Koolaid with no sugar! Bleck! but once the ice started melting and the tea became less concentrated, my opinion of this “take away” tea slowly changed.
I think it will be worth buying a 100g and savouring over ice this summer… and maybe if I steep it myself I might have an improved opinion.
All in all: Not bad, worth a second chance.
This was a purchase made under the suggestion of my favourite Tea Gal at David’s tea. I have never tried an oolong, and it took me a while to figure out how to steep it so that I can steep it again (a very expensive learning experience for the frugal at heart).
I was a little put off at how flavourless this tea was despite the “kick you in the face” scent of the leaves, but I really enjoy the colour the saffron leaves give to this tea, the beautiful golden colour is something to look at!
First I bought this tea for my brother, knowing he is a loose leaf tea guru and that he would appriciate the title it was worth the purchase.
Later I went back and purchased 100g (because the free tin is quit a bonus) and have not stopped sipping since. I am NOT a tea person, in fact before this tea the only time I had loose leaf was with my brother. That being said I sincerely hope that this tea is kept either as a seasonal item, or permenant item because when I run out I will be back for more!
