46 Tasting Notes
It’s actually pretty good. I thought I wouldn’t like this. I’m not much of a fruity flowery tea person. The flavors are subtle. The caramel brings together the fruity flavors and the black tea. Delicious. The smell is very fruity and sweet. The taste is more subtle and smooth. The liquor is a reddish brown color. It’s a nice color.

I thought I wouldn’t like this. But, it’s grown on me. It doesn’t taste as strong as expected. It’s subtle. It tastes nutty, and piney. It has a herbaceous, earthy, plant like flavor. A spicy flavor. The liquor is light, almost white with a hint of brown. The leaves are whole, and light green in color. They are still connected to the branch. I use the branches as well. Sage is supposed to have health benefits. Memory improvement, skin, hair, nails, blood, heart etc…
Pure chamomile flowers. Most of the flowers are hole. I did not do a bagged version. I bought a big spice container full of it. It’s good for drinking at night. The liquor brews out in a light goldish yellow color. The smell is floral sweet but subtle and smooth. The taste is sweet, smooth, floral, maybe a bit herbaceous, maybe a slight nutty flavor. This is another tea I have grown to love.
Flavors: Floral, Herbaceous, Plant Stems, Plants, Sweet
I’ve grown to like floral teas. I didn’t always. I used to think they tasted like perfume. This tea is nice. Although I only had the bagged version it still was whole pearls that unfurled in the bag. The liquor is a light gold/yellow color. The flavor is good, subtle on the green, not to strong on the jasmine. It hits the nose in a good manner too. It smells sweet, floral, and just like a jasmine tea should.
Flavors: Floral, Flowers, Jasmine, Perfume, Sweet
Nice light green. Fresh product. It came in a bag and was about $15yuan. The leaves are dark green color with yellow and white tips. They are tightly rolled into cylinders strings. When brewed they unfurl. The liquor is a golden amber color. It smells and tastes vegetal and herbaceous. It has that nice astringent flavor of a green tea with out the bitter.
Flavors: Asparagus, Herbaceous, Herbs, Plants, Spinach, Vegetal
This is a good light tea from the land down under. It’s a nice refreshing green. Pan roasted in small batches. The leaves are twisted and tight. The smell of the leaves before brewing is pretty light. The liquor is a gold amber color light in color. The last is light in flavor there aren’t many smokey or vegetal notes. Just a slight herbal note.

It has a bit of a salty taste. It has qualities that are typical of a green tea astringent, grassy, plant-like, vegetal, herbaceous. It’s smooth and light and flavor.

An acquired taste with a lot of health benefits much like the dandelion itself. It’s more of a fix it to your taste kind of thing. The liquor is a beautifully golden brown color. It smells like a dandelion flower vegetal fragrant floral bitter. It tastes nutty with a very slight grassy taste. It has a back taste of coffee almost. I didn’t brew it for 10-15 minutes like it said I think that would make it to bitter.
Flavors: Coffee, Dandelion, Earth, Nutty, Plant Stems, Plants
This tea is also known as Linden leaf tea. I suppose it is a bit of an acquired taste. Personally, I love it. It took me a little while to love it. It does the trick in helping me fall asleep at night. The leaves are big, fluffy and bulky. It’s an airy light tea, so it takes up a lot of space. It’s a bit messy to get out of the bag/tin/container. You have to use a fair amount of leaves. The leaves are fragile and break easy. What I like about this version of Linden is it is not to flowery. I’ve had very flowery versions that are just to much. This one has a nice flower to leaf ratio. The liquor is extremely light. That’s how it should be. Like a white tea. The smell is strong potent but light at the same time. Salty, astringent, woodsy, delicate. It tastes like it smells in my opinion. Sort of like a chamomile but with a certain herbaceous note.
