571 Tasting Notes


The essence of this tea was so unique that I had to try it. I can imagine some monks up in the Himalayas concocting this tea. It’s slightly flowery. A hint of sweetness. Woodsy, black base is pretty much covered up by all the flavors mixing in the cup. Gorgeous amber color. Whoa weird! Banana!!! It went from sweet and flowery to banana and slightly bitter. This is a weird tea! Holy smokes.

What a fragrance! The dry smell is so sweet. Almost like root beer. You really cannot let this one steep too long or it becomes bitter fast. Oddly enough the first flavor to hit your mouth is not vanilla. It hits more in the aftertaste. Also I found it better if brewed at a slightly cooler temp. Not the best vanilla tea I’ve had but not terrible. Not something I would drink again.

Mineral and grassy. Smooth going down. I quite enjoy this one. Though I don’t quite find as many floral notes as I thought I would.

Generally I prefer straight green over black but I think it’s important to get a good tasting profile of each type. Not sure of this one. Theres alot going on in this cup. Woodsy notes, slight bark… Definitely assam. Not my favorite plain black but not bad.

Very much in the middle for this one. It does have a nit of amaretto flavor but whatever the base is… Well, they just don’t seem to jive that well.

Of all the plain white teas, which aren’t many, Bi Lou Chun always seems to be the most unique. In this one there are definitely grass notes a bit of hay but I’m also tasting some sweet notes. Not quite floral more like sugar sweet.

When lemonades and / or teas can get the lychee flavor right its like drinking a little bit of paradise. This company did a good job. I really wish I was sipping this on a beach right now. The dry smell is great; as is the wet smell. I love the fusion of the black tea flavors mixing in with the lychee. nom.

This company always comes up with the most interesting sounding tea. Not quite sure of this one. The first flavor that hits you is definitely mate and it stays with you till the after taste but the pecan and the caramel come out in hints just enough to make its name. I’m not a huge fan of mate but this isn’t too bad.

This reminds me of a dragonwell. Which is why perhaps they called it sleeping dragon? I thought at first that it was an oolong based on the look but it definitely has the flavor profile of a green/dragonwell. Grassy, somewhat bitter (maybe I over steeped it?), A bit of hay.

Where to being… well, I’ve been drinking jasmine tea for a long time. It still remains a favorite of mine but I’ve now added any more.

Green teas are my favorite. I like black tea but generally prefer it flavored. I’m finding a new love for oolong. Especially the type that leans more toward green. Whites are nice. Rooibos can be a hit or miss, but honeybush is better. (Golden Honeydew by Lupicia is the best). I don’t mind herbals but it really depends on the ingredients.
