618 Tasting Notes

A bit of a buttery floral note, but pretty muted. Very mild and slight bitterness in the finish. The leaves got strangely mushy after the first steep, which I haven’t seen before.

So, it seems Fong Mong has become JLTea Co. I placed an order for a sampler set and received the package from Taiwan in less than a week! 24 samples and I basically just paid shipping, so I’m very excited to start trying everything.
Onto the tea- this is really interesting. Floral and a bit vegetal, but very sweet with a caramelized sugar note. A bit of a dry mouthfeel, which isn’t my favorite.

I love how tart and zingy this is. So many flavored matchas are too sweet, so it’s nice to have a flavor that’s a bit unique.

A really enjoyable hojicha! It has the perfect balance of roasted sweetness that I was expecting.

Another winner. I’ve been very pleasantly surprised with my purchase from Tealyra, especially for the cost. This is very easy to drink, sweet honey and a bit of earthiness. I could easily drink this everyday.

Much more vegetal than I expected in a Jin Xuan. Like butter soaked artichoke and spinach, with the milkiness being quite mild.

Flavors: Artichoke, Butter, Milk, Spinach

drank White Champagne by Tealyra

I believe this is the same blend as White Riesling from Cultured Cup, but much cheaper. Really enjoyable! Strong grape and berry flavor. Can’t wait to make a nice big cold brew pitcher of this.

Cold brewed this overnight and I’m not loving it. I’m not getting any of the fruits listed in the ingredients, instead I get quite a distinct bubblegum flavor. It actually tastes a lot like Inca Kola, which I’m not a huge fan of.

Oh my gosh, I LOVE Inca Kola!! Off to find someone who will ship some to my house.

It’s definitely one of those divisive flavors! I wish I loved it.

It certainly has a distinct flavor, that’s for sure.

I just received my first Tealyra order and I’m so excited to try so many new-to-me teas! I had a coupon from SipsBy, so I got 50grams of 11 teas and a glass carafe for $50 (with free shipping).
Anyway, onto the tea. This is my ideal black tea flavor profile, and one I will definitely want to keep on hand. It’s delicious hot/straight, but I can imagine it would be wonderful sweetened with a bit of milk or cream. So rich and sweet, and extremely easy to guzzle cups and cups.

Flavors: Malt, Sugarcane, Sweet Potatoes

I was very impressed with this one too!

Had another session with this one and I still find it really enjoyable. Pleasant and predictable, which is sometimes what I’m looking for. Pretty standard flavors for a TGY, but I enjoy it nonetheless.
