104 Tasting Notes
Strong, tannic, breakfast tea. Probably best with milk / sugar; since I don’t use those, even my 15 second steep produced a very hearty cup. Good for one of those seldom times I want a stiff cup of tea. A Traditional black, pekoe cut tea.
Nice breakfast tea, but can be very strong if steeped a long time. With a 20 seconds steep, and no milk or sugar, produces a nice smooth morning tea.
If you steep for a couple minutes, you start to get the strong tannins present, and it has a bite, but maybe good if you like milk and sugar, that will come thru.
This is, I think, the first flavored oolong I’ve had.
It certainly struck me as “very different” as soon as I tasted it (being mostly a black tea drinker, but have had most all kinds by now).
Description says it’s oolong with Ginger, lychee and red cornflower; it strongly reminds me of a oolong-mint mixture.
I can’t say I’m a great fan, but it is certainly different. It does taste very “herbal” to me, and I’m not a herbal tea fan.
Medium chopped mixed black tea.
Nice “classic black tea” nose to the raw tea.
With a short steep (I use no milk or sugar), it’s a nice light black tea. No one taste that stands out or differentiates it from the mainline black teas, but nice and smooth and not tannic.
