21 Tasting Notes
WOW! This tea is AMAZING! I was given a sample in my recent order from Tea Source. I have been thinking about it ever since! Beautifully balanced flavors and aroma… My head was in the clouds wishing I had more, or more like I had a forever full cup in my hand! In my minds eye, this is the PERFECT tea. (Incase you haven’t noticed, I’m pretty crazy for Oolongs)
Flavors: Apple, Apricot, Floral, Honey, Stonefruit
This tea is another AMAZING tea from tea source! Nice floral, but not over the top. A lovely balance of honey, nutty, floral and apples.
(I have to admit, I probably would not have purchased this tea, EXCEPT that it was a 20% off sale.)
Flavors: Apple, Floral, Honey, Roast Nuts
This is my favorite tea for the morning wake me up. I find it medium roasted, that tapers off into a nice floral in the second steep. (I brew western style mostly, because I usually don’t have time for a brewing session at 4am …) I make a jar of this to last through my day, and the flavors change a bit as the tea cools off.
Flavors: Floral, Hay, Honey, Roasted
This is nicely flavored oolong, I could still the the tea. Not ‘fake’ flavor, more like there was a couple of fresh strawberries in my tea cup! I don’t care for artificial flavors in my tea, so I was weary of this purchase, but the description stated “natural flavor”, so I purchased a small amount, now… wishing I had purchased a bigger bag… (Hahaaahhaaah! I feel like I’m a tea hoarder… maybe I should’ve chosen that screen name!)
Flavors: Fruity, Strawberry
Gads! I am in love… again!!! This is so delicious, light roasted? Not sure, but it is resonating with my taste buds and the flavor is sweet, kinda baked goods, and smells of ripe fruit! The mouth feel is thick, and I taste this well after the cup is empty! This is crazy good to me!
Flavors: Fruity, Sweet, Thick, Toasty
I truly enjoyed this!!! At first brew She was beautifully light floral and a little something sweet that I can’t put my finger on, with a slight ‘Rock’ mouth feel..but not too much… The second brew was just a bit less floral with the same slight ‘Rock’ mouth feel. BUT let me say this… She stayed with me for a while! I could still taste the sweetness half an hour later! I usually will only do 2 steeps since I brew Western style, however, I probably could have pushed this tea farther! In fact, I will certainly be sitting with this beauty in a Gong Fu session!
Flavors: Fruit Tree Flowers
