24 Tasting Notes

I just got this in a sample from adagio. Dry loose leaf smelled like apricots and it got my hopes up. I steeped it in boiling water for 5.5 mins. and the liquor was a medium amber to black. It tasted like a malty scotch with some dried apricots at the end. I got 3 steepings out of 1 teaspoon of leaf. Overall it was OK at best.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 30 sec

Try less steep time and more water. You’ll be surprised how good it is. I usually go about 1 tsp per 22 oz of water and 4 minutes. You’ll pick up flavors you never knew existed in black teas that way.

It takes a strong tea lover to admit to drinking any bagged tea. More power to you! :)

Thanks, I am thinking about doing a episode on my blog where I taste and rate the best bagged black teas.

Yeah, the malty notes. That’s the flavor I couldn’t describe! When I update my review, I will credit your review in kind.

Loved it!, I got sick and decided to have this tea by itself, it was like having espresso with caramelized sugar notes.

I did this tea as a celebration of the first episode of GTTV. I was so bummed how bad it was, I had the 2008 vintage, and it was bitter , very bitter, needed more aging, damp soil and mushroom notes on mid-back palate.

I scored this a 90-95 on an episode of GTTV, Great seaweed notes upfront,more of a floral back end of it. A pleasant cuppa!
