3 Tasting Notes


It appears that Dragonwater is now focusing only on herbal teas. That really stinks, since they were my main source for tea and only about 5% of what I drink is herbal. Oh well, change is good. Now I have a reason to try out other places.

I had really high hopes for this tea. It sounded so good and was out of stock for quite a long time, so I was really excited to try it out, but in the end I just couldn’t get into it. Too vegetal tasting for me. I love green teas, and don’t mind grassiness (Dragonwater’s Green Yerba Mate is quite grassy, but also one of my favorites) but this was a little too much for me. Tried different steeping methods, times, and temps, but ended up just throwing away the last couple ounces of the four ounce bag I bought.

I haven’t been overly impressed with other teas I’ve tried from Tao of Tea, but I love this tea. Discovered it at my local co-op (and for $20/lb less than on their website, which I don’t understand, but I’ll take it!) It’s going to be my new ‘everyday’ oolong. Has a light, fresh, slightly fruity taste (the company describes it as nectarine/peaches, while I think apricots).

Just like any other guy, only more so. Also, I love tea- mostly scented green and oolong.

(Also note: probably not going to be a very active reviewer here- mostly just looking for new stuff to try.)
