13 Tasting Notes
Very well matched flavors that make for a wonderful rooibos. The Cinnamon and vanilla go great together but surprisingly lack the amount of flavor I would expect. Perhaps a longer steeping time would remedy this but I still enjoyed this tea very much. The vanilla provides a very faint sweetness while the cinnamon is the slightly more dominant taste. I’d prefer stronger flavors but it’s still a tea I’d have again.
The aroma is fantastic but the flavor doesn’t live up to it. Not nearly as sweet as I would expect but the taste is unique enough for me to really like. The best flavor comes out when warm and not too hot. The taste is mostly of black tea with pumpkin pie flavors to it. Enjoyable but don’t set your expectations too high.
My first loose leaf oolong and it’s better than expected! The dried tea is very earthy and musky. However, it came out tasting a lot lighter and smoother than I would have guessed. The flavors are earthy, woody and a bit grassy. If you’re not too familiar with oolongs (like me), you should give this a try. I enjoyed it.
