9 Tasting Notes
the notes on the bag are “sports drink, ash, bubbly” which is very… vague but this tea really is that interesting. every time i drink it i have to eat some plain rice or something to balance it out, because it really is an overwhelming flavor… a delicious, interesting flavor, but overwhelming. idk how to describe it!
Flavors: Campfire, Mineral
my all-time favorite tea. great value, buttery, cashew, floral, minerality, and such a warm taste. the sweetness and slight bitterness balance perfectly. great for quite a few steeps. if i had to pick one tea to drink forever, it would be this one. it’s so complex yet so enjoyable.
Flavors: Butter, Cashew, Floral, Mineral
intense and rich experience. feels like drinking warm liquid caramel and peach jelly and chocolate. on the second steep it thins out and is easier to drink. it’s the tea i drink when i wish i had a latte.
Flavors: Candied Fruit, Caramel, Chocolate, Peach
Delicious. So buttery, sweet and flowery. It’s like a croissant and a beautiful bouquet. it tastes like a jasmine green but better. i am always delighted at how much the leaves bloom and expand in a tieguanyin!
its also delicious iced.
Flavors: Butter, Floral, Sweet, Warm Grass
an incredibly reliable, simple hojicha. this is my go-to for when i’m showing a friend my tea cupboard and i want to give them a flavor theyve probably never tried in tea. and so cheap, too. i always have a bag of this around.
Flavors: Campfire, Sweet, Warm Grass, Toasty, Woody
