5 Tasting Notes
I brewed this a little too thin, but it’s still flavorful. I was worried that it might be too tannic because of the berries and currant, but it’s not at all. The cardamom sets it off very nicely, and gives it a wonderful aroma.
This tea has a good balance between the two flavors, neither is overpowering.
I brewed this tea a lot more impatiently today than the last time, and the result was very well balanced. Nice flavor to it, even with ice added.
I’ve had this many times, but I’m going to be more controlled about it this time. Still though, it seems to be a similar taste no matter how I brew it: nutty, with a mild chocolately taste. It’s become my standby morning drink, but sometimes I wish the chocolate shone through more.
I maybe brewed this a bit strong, because it’s a little more tannic than I would expect given the descriptions I’ve read. Still, it’s a nice, fully flavored basic black tea
