97 tasting notes

Didn’t realize I could review Kombucha here. _
This one was great! If you’re not a fan of really strong ginger the lemon here seems to do a good job of softening that taste although it could be that they just to include so much ginger. Still, tasty all around.

The dry leaves have a very, very subtle sweet aroma.
This is a really, really good oolong! Kept steeping and drinking until it was little more than colored water, LOL!
The leaves expand quite a bit so I had to switch pots at some point to let the leaves fully open while steeping.

Flavors: Honey, Stewed Fruits, Sweet Potatoes

Lightly toasted, sweet, very pleasant aftertaste. I’m wondering if the leaves having a few months to rest has helped with some of the unpleasantness experienced by the previous reviewer. The smell of the steeped leaves do still smell a bit like burnt food… or at least I can see how that description came to mind, lol.

I’m not using a lot of leaf because while I brought a teapot with me I’m not at home so I’m having to opt for less leaf, longer steep and that probably has a big effect on taste.

Personally enjoying this first experience from Taiwan Sourcing. Sweet upfront with this slowly blossoming floral and sweet potato aftertaste. The other thing that really, really stands out from the very first sip is how creamy this tea is. Very smooth, thick mouth-feel.

First cup, very smooth, nutty, sweet.
Got lost in drinking and stopped recording notes, but man the pineapple note REALLY turned up in cup 3. Delicious and awesome!

The try leaves smells amazingly sweet! Wish there was a way to share aromas over the internet, lol!

The taste in the first cup is grassy and nutty with the overriding flavor being that of chestnuts with a sweet grass backdrop. Got a few leaves in this cup and the are really tinder with a touch of bitterness.

The second cup is noticeably sweeter. More of an even blend between honeyed grass and chestnuts.

Third cup has some melon notes in addition to the previous.

This is really good! I’ve been adding water and sipping throughout the day and loving it!

I normally do my tasting notes in a text editor first so as to not lose anything, but unfortunately I didn’t do that this time.

This tea was good enough that I seriously considered buying a cake despite the ridiculous amount of tea I already have on hand. Still, very tempting.
