4840 Tasting Notes
This is very interesting. I had put off trying it because I was scared it would be too bitter, but it is “bitter in a good way!” It is a savory kind of bitter, kind of like dandelion greens. It has a very pleasant – almost sweet! – taste to it. Crisp, herbal, and I’m really enjoying this so much more than I thought I would.
Definitely use a little less leaf than you normally would, a lighter infusion is better here. A short steep time is also recommended.
I knew this would be good when I opened the pouch and smelled the chocolate and could see all the chocolate-y goodness inside.
Rich and chocolate-y. Very pleasing. I can see why they refer to this as their PMS blend! Ha!
Seriously though, this is really YUM! A must try for all chocolate lovers out there.
The more I drink this one, the more I’m liking it. It has a very smooth flavor, the cranberry is not too tart, and there is a very pleasing sweetness to the overall cup. Fruity, but not too much. A very good balance between fruit flavor and tea.
And just because I am enjoying this more than before, I increased the ratings a bit.
Enjoying one last cup of this before I send off what I have left to my SororiTEA Sister!
This one seriously starts off like a Darjeeling. Once it cools just a little bit, it demonstrates more Nilgiri characteristics… It has a nice, robust quality to it. Very pleasant. Notes of citrus. A very lovely tea.
This tea reminds me a lot of a Darjeeling, both in appearance and in flavor. In fact, had someone just sat this cup in front of me without telling me what type of tea it was, I would guess it was a Darjeeling.
But, according to the package it is a Nilgiri. It has a bright, brisk flavor. It is somewhat astringent which leaves the palate feeling clean but not overly dry. Very smooth and no bitterness. A light sweetness with a muscatel-ish note.
A very pleasant tea. The light sweetness makes it quite delicious without adding any sweetener or milk. I like it very much.
Edited to add: After this tea cooled slightly, this became more Nilgiri-like than Darjeeling-like. I’m getting less of a muscatel note now and more of a citrus-y note. A very interesting tea…
