Honestly the only reason why this doesn't have 5 stars is because I'm hoping to find something I like more, but it is sooooooooo good.
Taiwanese Oolong Sample Pack
The 6 teas in this sample are all very distinct and super delicious. What a great way to learn the nuance of oolong. Always happy with the quality from Tea & Whisk. Keep up the good work!!!
I wanted to chat with Leo first but I thought I'd try to rate it anyway. Sure I brewed it right but the end was strong and drinking about 8 oz 3:30 p.m. was too late for me, got a little jumpy. I may have brewed too long or too much for me but for that type of green tea, it was very good, just not a fan of a seaweed nuance. I did tell Leo that when we were chatting but wanted to try the variety pack and knew that was there. I have not brewed the others.
This is a good combo of some nice Chinese green tea. Its better to try yourself but I don't think you'll be disappointed. While everyone has different taste preferences, I think you'll like at least one of these as long as you like green tea.
I'm not the biggest fan of white tea. It has a lot of health benefits that women enjoy but taste wise...eeh. Bai mudan is the best out of all options. The flavor profile is complex and evolving. I used a raw wood fired pot with 180° water and the difference between brews was outstanding. I like it and will be drinking more of it.
I am enjoying trying all the teas I received. The flavors of each are subtle and one as good as the other. What a treat to find your shop with these wonderful teas!
It's a very long table runner so make room. I have the yellow mountain and I live the colors and scenery of it all. I feel like I'm actually in Taiwan looking up at some high mountain tea farms.
