4550 Tasting Notes
Backlogging from Last Night: This is one of my favorite rooibos blends. I love it!
I wrote a review of it previously, you can read it here:
This is a lovely Yunnan. The taste is smooth and there is an underlying creamy, caramel-y sweetness that is very nicely played against the other notes in this tea. I am tasting notes of spice – almost peppery. Beautifully autumnal.
I’m off to write a review for this for the SororiTEA Sisters blog!
I’ve previously reviewed this tea, you can read it here:
The dry leaf smells really lovely, and I love the way the licorice root melds with the tropical fruit. It’s light and in balance. Really delicious.
Thank you to Rachel for sending me a bit of this to try!
I have not yet tried any teas from TeaGschwendner but it is a company that I’ve been planning a purchase from for some time now. It is nice to be able to try a tea from them before placing an order.
I tried it first without steamed, frothed milk or sweetener, and I found that after brewing 4 minutes, there was a hint of bitterness to the tea. When I added the milk and honey, the bitterness disappeared.
But what didn’t disappear is the bold, strong presence of the tea and the warm and peppery spices. It is a pleasantly spiced chai. YUM!
