136 Tasting Notes
Thank you, Steepster friends! When I joined this site last Saturday, I immediately started to see notes about Yunnan black tea, and they were all positive…so, I knew that I needed to try this tea! It’s bold, but so smooth. I immediately made a second cup after I was done my first, just to make sure…so good! If the bagged tea is this good, I’ll definitely have to try some loose Yunnan black teas. Add this one to the regular rotation!
I love the variety available in the World of Tea…but, at this point, I’d have to say that sencha is my go-to tea. Inexpensive, good taste…nice mixture of grassiness and sweetness. This one is great for a store brand…I actually think I prefer it to the Yamamotoyama sencha. I’ll have to venture out more and try more senchas…this one is definitely doing the trick for now though.
I love a good green tea…this tea has surprised me…it’s funny how I acquired a taste for this one so quickly. I think I read someone use the description “pleasantly bitter” for a tea, and, at the time, it kind of seemed like an oxymoron. But, that’s kind of how I’d describe this tea. I went from fairly neutral about it to wanting to have it more often. Good stuff.
This is perhaps my favorite bagged tea. The way I stumbled upon it was kind of funny. I was on a trip to Raleigh for training, and in Cary to meet my friend at a Thai restaurant. I went into a Turkish store to ask for directions. It turned out that the restaurant was directly across the parking lot. I felt bad not buying anything at the store, so I bought this tea, thinking it would just be so-so. I’ve been searching every store in southeastern North Carolina for this tea since I finished the box…I may have to buy it online. I’ve rambled enough…nice tea, a very smooth Ceylon…highly recommended.
