21 Tasting Notes
I was very curious about this tea. You all know how the descriptions can catch your eye, and you think – HMMMPH- what’s -—- taste like? In this case, ORCHID, they don’t smell, they are not fragrant flowers, so???? HIGH FRAGRANCE, lightly roasted and somewhat sweet rock tea. The second brew, less fragrance less sweet and fell flat… I’m still figuring this one out, (I’m glad it was a sample) I wasn’t that impressed because it came on strong and left me hanging with a blank WTHeck?
Flavors: Floral, Roasted
I am quoting the website on this one because it is spot on! Not only is it spot on, it’s INCREDIBLY affordable when compared to other oolong prices!!!
as quoted from TeaSource:
" This semi-ball oolong tea is on the “green” side of oolong teas. It produces a cup that is extremely aromatic. The liquor is sweet, floral (think lilacs), and silky with a tiny bit of a mineral note just to make it interesting. It also has a little more body than most “green” oolongs. "
Flavors: Floral, Sweet
This is the ‘Milky’ Oolong or flavored oolong. It’s tasting like buttered popcorn and floral green oolong. I enjoy this tea on occasion, and it’s great iced as well! It’s not too thick either!
Western style brewing and at least 2 or 3 steeps.
