2 Tasting Notes
Another sample from a friend. I love the scent of it…reminds me very much of the Japanese onion soup I love at the local hibachi, for some bizarre reason. Earthy, I guess! Taste is smooth and malty, with that hint of wet earth so apparent in the scent. Would definitely drink again, but would like to check out other brands as I hear there is better golden monkey for the price. Still, a nice cup!
Received a sample from a tea enthusiast friend, just enough for a cup. The scent of jasmine was absolutely lovely as soon as the water hit the pearls, and I found the taste to be light and soothing, with a silken feel on the tongue. I’m still a tea neophyte, so I have very little to compare this to, but I did enjoy it very much and will likely buy some. The only drawback is that I have a sensitive nose, and after half a cup I started to get a headache from the jasmine despite enjoying the smell. Going for a second steep anyway, because I’m a glutton for punishment.
