43 Tasting Notes
I had a nice cup of this tea today. When I opened the package, I could smell the soothing scent of lavender immediately. When I lifted the cup to my nose, I could small bergamont and lavander, but they were not in competition.
The first half of the cup, I drank straight. The flavors mingled nicely together. The second half of the cup, I added milk. I wanted to see if it would hold up nicely, and it did. I enjoyed the cup.
This tea would make a nice latte as well. I may just have to order more and see.
This is an interesting tea that I tried many different ways. I tried high heat and low heat at various temperatures. It had a distinct taste that was noted with malty tones. It has a robust flavor without overwhelming my pallet. I am not a giant fan of the flavor, but it is quality. This is a quality representation of this tea.
I have to admit that I was disappointed with this tea. I tried it at least four times, and the result was always the same. Maybe the flavor was just too subtle for me. I like my Pi Lo Chun to be a little more robust. It also had a slight smokey flavor—almost like Dragonwell. Don’t get me wrong, this tea is not horrible. It just is not quite the chun I like.
I’ve had this brew before, but I have yet to rate it. I like the subtle flavor of this green. It is a little smokey, and the body is slightly heavier than expected. The result is subtle smoke with some weight. I was surprised by this tea. It almost reminds me of what a green keemun would taste like.
