4825 Tasting Notes
I enjoyed a cup of this with the birthday cookies I made for the birthday party (my daughter requested cookies – her favorite peanut butter blossoms – instead of a cake for her party)… and it is so good with dessert! Then again, it’s good instead of dessert.
Still my favorite… although I think that the chocolate malt honeybush may give it a run for it’s money.
Two Oolongs in one day? Yay!
OK… this is totally yum. Like YUMMMMMM!
This has a very lovely honey-esque note to it, sweet, with a roasty nutty taste too. A very light buttery touch, and a very pleasant floral note.
This is why I love Oolongs!
No other teas can match their complexity, in my opinion… such a unique depth of flavor, rich mouthfeel, it’s like drinking liquid gold.
This is actually the Ali Shan Spring 09, but, since there wasn’t an entry for the Spring offering, and Norbu no longer has the Spring available, I decided to just use the fall.
Delicious. In my opinion, Norbu offers the best Ali Shan. And I love drinking it out of my new Yixing mug. It makes Ali Shan even more special by distinguishing it with it’s own mug.
The flavor is only slightly nutty, pleasantly floral, buttery, rich, absolutely SUPERB!
This is a very delicious blend of tea, fruit and spice. The tea is brisk and alive with flavor. Surprisingly strong tea flavor when considering the other flavors that are represented in this blend.
The spices are pleasant – not too heavy – and provide a really nice accent to the juicy sweet orange flavor. Very autumnal, this blend, and it makes me long for the cool, crisp air and the colors of fall!
Thank you Doulton for allowing me to sample this tea!
This is smooth, rich, fruity, sweet-tart and delicious. It isn’t my favorite Dammann Freres tea that I’ve tried, and that is actually kind of weird for me to declare, because, it seems that with every Dammann Freres tea that I do try, I have a “new” favorite.
That doesn’t mean I dislike this, I am enjoying it very much. YUM!
I was in the mood for latte so I grabbed this Chai today – it is rich and spicy. The Assam is of good quality – no bitterness, malty and toothsome. The spices are delicious here and are nicely balanced: cardamom, cinnamon, cloves and ginger… the spices are warm and comforting on this overcast day and there is a very nice peppery kick at the finish!
This latte is smooth, rich, creamy and YUMMY!
