1103 Tasting Notes
Thanks ashmanra for sending me some of this to try! It sounded sooooo good in everyone’s reviews, and it is from one of my favorite regions!
The first thing that came to mind was how it’s more sweet and subtle than Hao Ya A, but still packs a punch. Very rich. More like a languorous richness vs. Hao Ya A’s laserbeam POW! I wouldn’t call it smoky…it’s less smoky than the lightly smoky Queen Catherine. It’s more roasty but it has this – not lemony but this very sweet fruity highlight at the end of the sip? Really, really good. I would purchase this in LESS than a heartbeat! :) I’m CRAZY for it!
Many, many, many, many thanks ONCE AGAIN to ashmanra, who has introduced me to SO MANY of my favorite teas!!! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo Rat Lunch 4ever!!!!!
Made some corn muffins for breakfast, and this went really well with them. What doesn’t this tea go well with? :) :) :)
Yummy spices, a great change of pace, but a little weak after having some other roobois chais which are more robust. I think next time I am going to make it with 3 bags for 16 oz water. Not cost effective, but I bet it will be super delicious, because I do like the spices used in this one.
Feeling throat scratchy – hope it’s just allergies! I thought Earl Grey Supreme would help me out of my doldrums, and it did – to a point. I was craving something sweeter after a cup, so I added a pinch of Rosy Earl Grey and mmmmm! I think I’m going to drink this alllllllll day :)
All Hail Queen Catherine and an Everything Bagel with Cream Cheese! The best breakfast in all the kingdom! Oh that smoky meets creamy!
My Golden Love! On second very sweet, honeyed steep. As close as you can get to heaven on a Monday morning.
Had this because I didn’t want to bore you guys with another Vanilla Comoro entry ;) and I though it would go well with the remaining butter cookies with chocolate tops. It was quite good! I’m still getting a little chemically taste, but it’s a very drinkable tea. I have about a teaspoon left of my sample, and I think I will mix it with some chocolate tea I have for a sort of “half-caf” concoction one night :)
Broken record time. Yup, had it again last night with some butter cookies with the dark chocolate tops. Gosh, they’re good! And Vanilla Comoro went so well with them, adding some vanillacaramel sweetness.
