19 Tasting Notes
I really like this tea. I tried it first unsweetened but added cane sugar on the second go. The sugar really brought out cakey notes that I love. I’ll definitely keep this one on my shopping list. My favorite Della Terra tea so far.
This was my first pu-erh and I was blown away. I loved the smoky sweetness of this tea. Each re-steep was a little less smoky and a little sweeter- and each cup was delicious. At work today all I could think about was getting home to have a cup of Wild Monk. Yay- it’s Friday and I have all weekend to drink tea. I think I’m hooked…..
This tea has a weird artificial flavor that I don’t love. I’m sad about this because I love malted milk balls and had high hopes for this. This definitely is not a re-buy!
The first time I had this tea, I sweetened it slightly. The most prominent flavor and scent to me was chamomile. After the chamomile, there was a strong citrus taste and vanilla last. The finish seemed to have more mango. I would have said that this tea would definitely not be a re-buy for me.
The second time I made it, I sweetened and also added milk. This totally changed the tea for me. The milk brought out the creaminess and toned down the chamomile and citrus- which is just what I wanted! I will re-buy!!
