30 Tasting Notes
I can’t imagine a tea more perfect than this one, for me!!! Hearts in my eyes!! It’s fruity and sweet but at the same time roasted and dark, ahhH!!! Stands up to many steeps, and that’s good, because I just can’t stop!!
That said I really don’t know how to gauge teas like this in terms of objective quality but I really, really love flavors like this.
Flavors: Charcoal, Floral, Fruity, Orchid, Peach, Plum, Roasted
I’m not as much a fan of darker black teas like this, but I grew fond of it over time. When I have it more gongfu style, I find it gives me a stomachache, but more Western style it’s much easier to take.
Flavors: Cherry Wood, Grapes, Plum
Gone for ages; back; etc.
This tea has a very very bright, citrusy smell. The tea itself is not as bright, which is expected but a shame! It’s very light, and still bright, but there is a heaviness/drabness to the taste throughout that brings it down a little. I can’t think what would lighten it up more to keep the freshness of the citrus throughout.
Regardless, I did quite enjoy this tea, which is a first for me with citrus flavors in tea. Also I’m sick right now, and a cup of this is a great thing to have around when you’re sick. I will probably drink this whenever I’m sick, and maybe on other occasions too.
Oh my god, this is absolute perfection. Once brewed, it tastes even better than the dry leaf smelled, which I didn’t think would be possible! It really tastes like white chocolate, real good quality white chocolate, and it isn’t too sweet at all. The white chocolate notes are almost flirty, very uplifting, and the finish almost makes me think of mint. It’s very fresh, and ridiculously delicious.
Smells AMAZING! Definitely tastes nutty—it’s absolutely delicious. I can’t think of a single bad thing to say about this tea. I’m on my second steep and it’s just as good as the first. The leaves still smell fragrant, so I might even go for a third. It’s creamy, probably from the coconut, but all the way through is just that wonderful walnut flavor. Why do I only have a sample size? :’(
