348 tasting notes

This tea has a really fruity aroma, both dry and steeped. I don’t know if I would have necessarily identified it as “mango” if I hadn’t already seen the name. I’m getting notes of both peach and mango, and probably would have gone with peach if I were smelling this blind. It does smell really juicy and makes my mouth water a bit. Ok, the taste is actually heading away from peach and back toward mango. Maybe some citrusy notes and a bit of pleasant sourness to add to the juiciness. I find that the rooibos provides a nice smooth base while letting the fruit flavours dominate, but I’m also not prone to finding rooibos objectionable, so interpret that opinion accordingly. :) Wow, I actually really like this. I bet it would be great iced.

Flavors: Citrus, Mango, Peach

Well it has been over a year and everyone I know thinks my tea obsession is a bit out of hand, so… I guess I’m not a total newbie anymore. :)

I’m drinking a lot more pure tea these days, though I still love a good flavoured blend too. Current favourites: Chinese and Taiwanese blacks, fresh Chinese greens, oolongs both green and roasted, sheng puer.

I really love companies that buy directly from tea farmers, and have an emphasis on quality and sustainability. Favourites: Verdant, Whispering Pines, Eco Cha, White 2 Tea. I live in a small town in the middle of nowhere, so I buy almost all my tea online.

For hot tea, I’m usually brewing in either a 100ml gaiwan, or a 10oz mug with a steeping basket. For cold tea, I cold brew overnight in 500ml mason jars.

My cupboard on Steepster doesn’t include small samples, just the ones I have at least 15g of. So if you see something you’re interested in, I probably have enough to share. :)
