4 Tasting Notes
I picked this up because I was interested in the “spice” the taste notes promised. I did not really get that, although, I may have not made it strong enough (rookie mistake). Overall a decent flavor…nothing astringent or sharp…very smooth in my opinion. I just don’t get any major flavors with it. I like a really strong black tea, so I will try again with more leaves next time.
(estimated guess on temp and time…still a gnoob ;P)
Bought this to try something new…my first “wow, I have never heard of this varietal” tea. When I steep it, the smell reminds me of some shwag weed. Taste is a bit woody, but not overpowering. Not really getting the sweetness the other reviewer talked about, but I don’t think I made this very strong. Overall, not bad, but not amazing. I would give this varietal another try, but not this company.
