2 Tasting Notes
After my bad experience with the tung ting oolong this morning, I went back for a second pick from my TeaPigs sample pack. OH myyyyy this good. The recommendation says to drink it with milk but I didn’t add anything to my tea. The first sip was wonderfully creamy and delicious. The after taste of my first sip was as if I drank cream — my mouth felt a coating of fat. Sounds gross but it was rather nice. As I drink the tea the earthiness gently emerged — I’m new to this so I’m going to look at the suggestions for the flavour I’m tasting. I will definitely be ordering some of this wonderfully delicious tea.
Flavors: Autumn Leaf Pile, Caramel, Cream, Frosting
MY background and disclaimer: Brand new real tea drinker here, having just switched off coffee so I know very little about tea. I grew up drinking Tetley tea bags with milk and sugar so tea is indeed a comfort for me. I have gotten educated on how to make a proper cup of tea. I got a sample pack from Tea Pigs and this is the first one that I am reviewing.
tung ting oolong tea completed underwhelmed me. I’m going to give it another try but it seemed almost flavorless to me. It’s very subtle and perhaps that’s something I just haven’t learned to appreciate yet. It seems to have little of the earthiness of green tea and none of the flavour of black tea. It just didn’t do it for me. Many of the teapigs teas really DID and I’ll be posting more reviews.
