97 Tasting Notes
Backlog from February 1.
Wow this is a super strong cup of tea. I added a bit of honey and almond milk to it. Perfect for those mornings that I am really sluggish and want that wake me up cup. It brewed so strong that it looked like a cup of coffee! (The strongest black tea I have in my tea cupboard☕️
Very nice ctc tea that is a bit “lighter” in strength than Irish Breakfast. I have been trying to find a nice cup of breakfast black tea that I don’t need to add sweetener to (aside from the almond milk). I think I have found a good contender!
Loved this nice strong cup of full leaf Irish breakfast tea. I made a pot of it for the family and only told them it was Irish breakfast so they assumed it was the same blend we usually have. I got two comments of “What tea is this again? It’s really good.” Thanks Stacy for yet another amazing blend!
Best way to describe this Rooibos is liquid cinnamon hearts! Super sweet tea that I used for iced tea yet the tea doesn’t list any sugar or stevia etc in the ingredients. Very different from other Rooibos teas that I have had. The lady at Winstons brewed me a sample of it. I found it was so different I had to get some. The fact that it was naturally sweet and such a strong cinnamon flavour was a selling feature for me. When I make this as iced tea I have to mix it with a bit of decaf black tea to cut down on the sweetness. I don’t really measure it but I would say 1 part of the decaf black to 2 or 3 parts Marketspice tea. Very different but good.
Thank you Stacy for this sample. I brewed according to the suggested parameters of 4mins. A very nice black tea! I don’t have a refined enough palate to explain or tell the difference between this and some other black teas I have tried:(
It has such good review here that I thought I would be able to taste the differences but I can’t :(
Will have to try some more of this later on in my tea “journey”
All in all a very nice cup of tea though!
