1112 Tasting Notes
This tea is really helping me cope today! I am back in work despite not feeling 100% and this honey sweet tea is keeping me upright. I’ve already had three magic elixir cups! It turns even more gentle and milky on later steeps. Mmmm!
It went well with my white whole wheat “coffee” cake – if you are trying to get more whole grains into your life, try this!
Super easy and so delicious!
The cold has won for today. Home with a tea that reminds me of being sick as a kid only 100000000000000000 times better, Mountain Malt. I’m sure a medicinal tisane with no milk or sugar would be better for me physically, but oooooooooh this is so perfect for me emotionally :) Rich malty comfort.
I’ve managed to pick up a little spring cold, and knew I wouldn’t be tasting right today. I chose this tea for the citrus, and was sad but not surprised it tasted like…berries! It was still enjoyable and soothing, which is all that matters :) It was my last spoonful from Jaime’s generous sample. Thanks again!!!
I put some Rosy Earl Grey in for the next steep and…yep. Berries. I guess having everything taste like berries is a pretty good way to have your tastebuds wackadoo!
We had this last night, and I liked it even better than last time (which is saying something, because I quite liked it already!). Once I accepted and expected the Ceylon flavor profile, I was able to get on with the business of simply enjoying a great cup of plain tea at 9pm! Horray!
Sit down everyone! There is a plain, black, decaf tea that ACTUALLY TASTES LIKE TEA! No strange chemical taste. No horrible dirty dishwater weakness. A solidly good cup of tea that I would quite pleasurably drink during the day, even if it was not decaf! A minor miracle!!!!!
Now, that being said, this is not the best cup of tea you will ever have. It definitely has that Ceylon profile – bright and lemony – which isn’t my favorite. It does not knock you down with deliciousness, like most of my daily drinkers. But it’s a gosh darn good cup of classic tea that you can have at 9pm and not stay up all night! I’m amazed!
Thank you ashmanra for another tea love!!!! This one is getting ordered!
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!!!!!
