1758 Tasting Notes
This tea has a strong cinnamon taste and a very weak chocolate one. It does not have much bitterness or astringency. I only bought 2 ounces and I am glad I didn’t buy more. Its a decent tea but not worth buying again. Someone who is a big fan of cinnamon would like it. I can’t taste the chocolate.
Sweet and mildly astringent tea with the flavor of ripe strawberries and chocolate. This tea is literally chocolate covered strawberries in a cup. It cries out for sugar. There is little bitterness to this tea.
Flavors: Dark Chocolate
This tea has an interesting flavor that is a mix of ginseng and oolong tea. It is not bitter but a little sweet with the pungency of the ginseng. Is is a flavor that is hard to describe but good. I added sugar but I think it has some natural sweetness and little of the wood notes common in oolongs. I brewed this with boiling water because I read that you need boiling water because of the ginseng shell around the tea leaves.
This is an excellent semi aged sheng. It is well on its way to being fermented and is quite tasty. I steeped this nine times in a 3 oz teapot. It was bitter in the early infusions and bittersweet in later infusions. It had lost all of the young sheng flavor. I brewed it without sugar and it was not too bitter. It had a strong mouthfeel to it and some Cha Qi.
This tea is interesting and it is enjoyable. It does not taste like other oolongs having little of the wood notes or the characteristic bitterness. It does, however have a mild relaxing effect from the Gaba in the tea. This makes the tea good to drink.
This is a complex and tasty tea. It does have, at least in the first infusions, notes of cocoa and molasses. It is somewhat earthy but does not have overpowering fermentation flavor. There is a slight bitterness to this tea that slightly overpowers the sweetness. It is complex. Sugar brings out a nice depth of flavor in this tea.
Flavors: Cocoa, Earth, Molasses
