7 Tasting Notes
this is my favorite so far! i love a nice jasmine tea. this is flavored with peach extract so not overwhelmingly peach but it plays nicely with the jasmine
i steeped for 2 minutes. the pearls werent able to completely unfurl so i will try a second steeping to see how it will affect the flavor
i steeped for 3 minutes which gave it a very light amber color. the leaves were able to unfurl all the way to release the full flavor of the oolong.
the strawberry flavor is from strawberry extract and i think because of this the flavor is very light, secondary, and not overwhelming. the tea has a faint strawberry fragrance also.
overall, i like it. its nice if youre in the mood for a flavored tea that isnt strong.
i caught this at target on clearance (i think because tazo redesigned their boxes). i was very excited given that i like apricot and vanilla. i tried it iced first (as per the box instructions) and it was ultra bitter. poured it out and tried it again hot for 3 mins (as per the box instructions) and it was still bitter. i tried it one more time for only 2 minutes because thats what i brew my loose white teas at; still bitter. also, the temp i used the whole time was the white tea setting. i am really sad, i wanted to LOVE this tea
