10 Tasting Notes
This tea is a lovely mid-range oolong with floral notes. It kept me contemplating the flavors throughout the entire pleasant cup. Long steep times are not a problem and I’m already looking forward to the next cup. Highly recommended.
This is a fantastic tea, which I did not expect. I received it as a gift and I find myself reaching for it regularly. A nice strong Earl Grey and the orange notes are great. A reviewer identified the blend as Adagio Earl Grey Bravo, and it looks like a dead ringer for it. I plan to seek this out once my tin is empty to refill it.
Honestly I drank this twice because I felt I must be missing something. The first aroma is odd and after that it’s a very average herbal. The lemon is overpowering and I can barely tell there’s ginger in it. The label says there’s also cinnamon and licorice but I can’t really detect those either. I might choose to drink this while sick – many seem to – but i can’t imagine choosing this otherwise.
This is a very inoffensive Oolong, and a very light one at that (the box even shows it to be not very strong by Twinings standards, showing two leaves). I can see how some people would find it offputting as the flavor leans green. I like my tea strong so after the first cup I used two bags, but it didn’t seem to make all that much difference. I’d give this an average score.
