429 Tasting Notes
I actually bought this as it was 100% Keemun to mix with my Lapsang Souchong. I decided to try it alone this morning. Its actually a very nice tea all alone. Its a very mild Keemun and easy to drink w/o sugar or milk. I can taste a very slight sweetness on my tongue as I sip. The kick I get reminds me of morning coffee and is very eye opening. A very enjoyable cup and I will drink more of this in the mornings.
I’m in love with this tea. I’ve had my can of Caravan about 2 weeks and its just about gone. I wish I knew how much of each tea was in this blend because I would try to blend it up myself. I do have an idea and I may try anyway. I just wish I could buy this tea from them w/o the other 2 teas. I’m looking at my empty cup and wishing it was full again. Is this like an addiction? “sigh”
I bought this tea at my health food store. The tea is in fine rolled pellets hence gunpowder. Its a very mild tea and I didn’t taste any smokiness which by the way I enjoy in tea. This tea was just bland to me. I have had Adagios gunpowder which I enjoyed because of the slight smoky flavor. The tea is organic but I really just did not enjoy this tea.
I really like this tea. Its lightly smoky because of the Lapsang Souchong in it. Its not a heavy tea. I can taste other tea in the blend but I’m not able to tell what it is. Its very similar to Caravan but not as strong. Its good, but I would prefer a little more smoke in it.
You can drink it w/o sugar or milk. I may buy some Lapsang Souchong and add it to the blend to see what I come up with.
This is my second cup of EG this morning. This EG is one of the more mellow and tasty that I have drank. The bergamot is not overpowering and the teas with it are quite good. My only wish would be that I could buy this tea and Caravan without the jasmine from Andrews and Dunham.
