lovely tea from raritea brewed up a cup tonight to try it out so i could pass the rest of the sample on to the next person. My only complaint about this one? not enough orange! haha this for me was largely a pistachio sort of rooibos blend. However, it was delicious, so i can’t fault it for that. I just can’t get enough of orange in my teas (though i don’t like blergamot! ‘cause that’s citruslike bleh) thanks for sharing Raritea!
Final Count: 84 (though that will be going up again tomorrow….)
Thin tasting with a sweet finish. There is a hint of grapefruit flavour that I normally find with oolongs. The bulk of the creaminess is in the aftertaste but I’m noticing the aftertaste to be a bit sour. I may consider infusing this tea for longer in the future to see if I can get a more bold flavour. The scent of the dry leaf is certainly the full sweet pudding aroma I normally expect with a milk oolong.
This Yunnan tea is a good example of what to expect from a nice black cuppa. Not too over powering, and I would not suggest adding milk or sugar. Offers a delicious caramel with barnyard aromas. By barnyard I mean think of freshly brushed clean horse. (I don’t know how to describe it otherwise!)
I was really looking forward to this, because everything I’ve had from Anteaques in the past has been amazing. Unfortunately, however, this Yunnan tasted of almost nothing. It was like drinking hot water, except for the progressively drying effect on my tongue.
