drank GABA Black by Mandala Tea
740 tasting notes

This was in a surprise parcel waiting for my from Dexter3657 when I got back. I’m on the resteep now, and I had the initial steep last night so this is mostly from memory.

Upon my first sip, I was reminded on Bailin. Which is great, since I keep that one around in decent amounts. The honey, syrup-y thickness was awesome. I have begun steeping Bailin at shorter steep times just because the syrupy quality can be a touch overwhelming, but not knowing what to expect I steeped this one longer and it was still tasty. The resteep is tasty, but in a much lighter flavoured way. Overall a great introduction to Mandala.

Thanks Dex!

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug!

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs, rooibos (specifically red, I’m more open to green), honeybush, and matés are not my favourite. I tend to avoid them altogether unless others find them so amazing it would be a travesty to not at least try.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
