297 Tasting Notes
Another very old favourite I’m having after many years.
Cream and whiskey aroma, as can be expected. And for an artificial flauvoring it seems pretty natural, warming and pleasant.
Full, malty body slight sweetness.
Not bad for a big company bagged tea.
Flavors: Cream, Irish Cream, Whiskey
Rooibos definitely in the front, but berries compliment in it very nicely, they stay in the back, do not dominate, contribute to the overall impression.
Slightly sweet, slightly sour taste.
Nice warming tea, craftily connecting rooibos with unusual additives.
Flavors: Berries, Blackberry, Raspberry, Sour, Sweet
Really nice colour with the reddish hue.
And very refreshing aroma with pomegranate and lime in equal amounts plus a bit of yerba mate in the background.
Flavour is fruity, a bit sour, not sweet.
Tasty mate-based tea, really refreshing and invigorating. Not exactly my style, but I can appreciate it.
Flavors: Citrus, Lime
Not very strong aroma. A bit herbal, a bit citrusy, with tangerine peel in the background. The bouquet is not very expressive, but it is soothing and relaxing in a way.
And the flavour is way better. Citrusy, slightly sweet, with the tangerine peel tang.
I’m not a big fan of lemon balm, but here it fits.
Flavors: Citrus, Citrus Zest, Lemon, Tangy
Strong fruity aroma from mulberry, sweetish, a bit perfume-y.
Fruity, rich, warming flavour, a bit natural, a bit artificial.
Nice tea. One of the few I encountered that contains white mulberry, a fruit I really enjoy both in raw and dried version.
Flavors: Fruity, Sweat
The aroma is subtle, mostly with pineapple plus a bit of apple and base green tea in the background. Seems a bit too perfume-y.
Fruity, refreshing, not too sweet flavour. The pineapple is in the foreground. The whole composition is decent and warming, but the tea itself is very weak.
Flavors: Apple, Grass, Pineapple, Sweet
Straight from the bag this tea smells much more like Irish Cream than like crème brûlée, with distinct whiskey and cream notes.
But after steeping the aroma seems right. There is cream, toffee, toasted notes, nuts, Danish pastry. Yep, it’s flavouring, but it gives the correct sweet dessert impression.
And the taste is sweet but not oversweetened, caramelly, toasted, not overdone with flavourings. Satisfies my sweet tooth.
Flavors: Caramel, Cream, Irish Cream, Nuts, Pastries, Sweet, Toast, Toffee
I really like the aroma. Straw, hay, peaches.
The flavour is grassy, woody, slightly tart and fairly astringent, a bit sweet.
As far as inexpensive Chinese green teas go, this one is really nice.
Flavors: Astringent, Grass, Hay, Peach, Straw, Tart, Wood
