35 Tasting Notes
My second pot (thankfully I started small) was much better today. The second was lighter on the black tea (1 tbsp instead of two) and white agave instead of sugar. I much prefer the agave instead of sugar or honey.
great for breakfast, too
I steeped quite a bit longer this time to see what the effect would be and this Wild Pu-erh does take on a very creamy taste and is very different but also quite nice compared to my usual lighter steeps.
I love this spice blend, particularly the cardamom & pepper balance. Next time I think a little less sugar but whole milk instead of 2% is in order.
Shou Mei is an above average white tea with a bit of a nutty flavor. But, a pleasant afternoon tea. I may try a hotter, shorter steep next time.
Made a little warmer than usual with a half teaspoon of Amber Agave Nectar, it is a pleasant little afternoon “pick me up”. The dark Agavae had too much of a caramel taste but the Amber is perfect.
This is a very nice tea. Not yet a favorite, but a pleasantly sweet subtle flavor that persists in the mouth but is not even slightly acrid. It makes a great pot to relax with at the end of the work day.
