Generally not very fond of added flavor to the teas, i discovered the richness of the painter's palette Gardenia tea with surprise and much pleasure. For my taste and point of view it would have displayed still a wider palate's nuances if the oxydation would not have mellowed so much this tea.
I loved this tea, crunchy leaves, perfumed and great flavour! Top quality++++
I recently tried the Gardenia Oolong tea and it was absolutely divine! The floral notes were delicate and the tea had a smooth texture with just the right amount of subtle sweetness. It's definitely become one of my new favorites. Highly recommend giving it a try!
I love jasmine tea. But then I tried this gardenia tea, it is even better. I know a lot of flower teas are just artificially infused with fragrance to cut cost. This tea doesn't give out strong fragrance therefore one tick. Price not too low is another tick. I found that the peak is the second brew, after that it would quickly lose its flavour. Tea is a personal thing but why not give it a go
While I’m not familiar with the scent of gardenias, I have enjoyed other scented teas like jasmine and magnolia. This tea isn’t overly floral. It has a soft scent of strawberry shortcake. On the palate it is light, subtly sweet and tastes clean like a sliced pear with unripe strawberry hints. It’s quite smooth without any bitterness and a lightly floral finish. This tea is absolutely sensational as a cold brew! So refreshing and summery.
