76 Tasting Notes
Drinking Three Kingdoms Mao Feng after replenishing my supply. Still a great everyday green tea with good flavor. Must say though, I may never shop at a Teavana store again. I’m really tired of the hard sell tactics they use…‘accidentally’ measuring more tea than you asked for, pushing one more tea, and one more tea to make their 1 lb. discount, which isn’t that great of a discount (only 10% on already overpriced tea). I like some of their exclusive blends enough that I’ll keep buying them, but I may start buying exclusively online.
Don’t let the name of this oolong scare you! It’s really good – light and slightly sweet, with just a hint of a fruit taste at the end. I bought it at a great little Denver neighborhood tea and bike shop – yes, I said tea and bike shop :) They repair bicycles and sell tea – what a concept! But really, it’s the tea that matters to me, and this is incredible!
Trying this for the first time tonight. The description rather intrigued me, and seems an apt description of this tea. It has an enjoyable flavor – not sure I taste almond, but I’m definitely enjoying the grassy flavor, the hint of citrus peel, and the lovely coloring. To me, tea is about so much – taste, texture both wet and dry, aroma, color, and this offers a lovely, layered experience. It’s a great tea to relax with.
I stopped by my local teahouse, Wystone’s World Teas, for dinner and my favorite Chai. Alas, they were out of chai, but I did pick up some food and this lovely Japanese Sencha. I had previously tried a Cranberry Sencha, and I liked the tea but found the cranberry flavor overpowering. This Japanese Sencha is perfect – grassy, mild, and natural in the way a green tea should be. A fellow patron of Wystone’s said this was his favorite green tea, and I can see why :)
