My last sample from Malt Tea! Of course I’m going to be placing an order there very soon (how did I miss seeing the chocolate one the first time?!), but I wanted to make my way through the samples before picking what I was going to order.

This smells pretty much identical to the Crystal Malt 60—sweet, honey-like, with a hint of malty goodness. The taste, though, is surprisingly different! It’s still got that honey sweetness and a soft richness, but it’s much… thicker. Not in consistency, but in flavor, it just feels fuller and bolder. There’s a really interesting creamy aspect, both in taste and texture, and also a bit of a tang. In fact, it brings to mind buttermilk! This is definitely a savory tea, even with the maltiness bringing to mind candy. It’s way more complex than the 60 Malt and I LOVE it (though not as much as the 120). Definitely picking up some of this!

I didn’t get the chocolate in my sampler, so I’ll pick up some bags when I place an order! Usually I don’t like teabags but theirs are so convenient for quick cold brews plus they don’t really need to expand a ton like tea leaves.

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
