139 Tasting Notes
I’ve had only a few white teas that I don’t like. This is not one of them. It’s got the melony hay taste. Tasty stuff—I’ll make sure to always have some of this around.
I’ve gotten into black teas a lot recently. Next, I’ll get into whites, oolongs, and raw puerh. If any has a good suggestion for those, please let me know! I’m still a tea rookie.
Flavors: Hay, Melon
This is a tasty herbal. I’m drinking it with the Simply Better Tea Mug w/ strainer I got from the sale, which is still going if anyone is interested—25% off of the Vitacost teas and a free mug w/ strainer with $25+ tea purhcase. By just the smell of the loose leaf, I’d also recommend the black berry brulee tea, and the earl grey. The vanilla cookie one and the chamomile lavendar don’t smell the best.I think that this tea would also be good cold and sweetened, though I usually prefer teas unsweetened.
This is a tasty tea. Lots of cocoa flavor coming out. It reminds me of hot cocoa I used to drink growing up. It’s definitely a sweeter tea.
I spent lots of time exploring different teas during my second year of drinking loose leaf tea. I still have lots of teas to try, but I’ve found that black teas are by far my favorite.
I’m just about out of black tea, so I’ve looked at reviews on Yunnan Sourcing’s teas and have picked out a few. If anyone has any suggestions, I’d appreciate hearing them!
Back to this tea, it also has a nice nutty taste, but does not have the burnt toasty notes of other genmaichas I have tried. Overall, this tea is very good and is the fastest tea I’ve gone through yet.
This tea is fantabulously delicious. I’ve only had a few ounces of it warm—I put the rest in two mason jars in the fridge for myself and a friend for drinking later today.
It tastes like brown sugar and watermelon. Not artificial watermelon either. Great tea. I will have to see if I prefer it cold.
