1928 Tasting Notes
I’m having this tea as a latte with coconut milk – the thin kind you get in tetra packs for your morning cereal.
I don’t love this “milk” but it does OK with this tea! Also, I can’t really taste it but I can taste enough and I like it. :)
In other news, I got a new phone because it was free and I switched providers because it was way cheaper. Now I’m having troubles setting the thing up, because it’s Android and I’m a former iPhone user! Any one have tips for an LG G3? Mostly to make sure it’s not using all my data in random things? I had that down on the iPhone, but I’m not sure what settings I should be changing on this phone! Also, my LG backup keeps failing. I don’t get it. At least I have enough in my Google account to deal with phone backups.
OMG! And also, how the heck do I put music on this thing? :O
My taste still isn’t OK. I had this with some sweetened condensed milk this morning (because it was in my fridge!) and…
It tasted like vanilla orange dirt.
I have a random yunnan black from Dexter’s box in my lunch bag. Here’s hoping that one doesn’t taste like dirt. :/
Oh, almost done. I’m gonna be so so sad once this is gone!
I made a BIG POT of it tonight, because regular teas just aren’t doing it for me. I added some honey, and I’m having it along side some cream scones with honey.
I need to start stocking heavy cream again, because they are better made with heavy cream rather than just coffee cream. But they’re still so good drizzled in sweetness.
I didn’t use enough tea in my glass gongfu pot. Sadness! So while it’s still tasty, it’s weaker than it was last time and isn’t the expected thick liquid honey-like liquid.
6g is not enough for 200ml. Just FYI.
And eggplant bhartha is too strong to eat along side this tea as well. Even though it was delicious.
From MissB, probably a really long time ago. Thank you!
It’s not bad. There were lots of crumbs in the bag, which is why I hadn’t made it before. As it sat and I drank it, it went quite bitter because of the tiny pieces.
When fresh, the flavour was nice. It was… EG-ish I think maybe? IDK. I have a headache and I’m cooking dinner and also cleaning my apartment. So I wasn’t paying a lot of attention. I drank it up quite fast though, and would be happy to try it again if I had the opportunity.
I had this after the Chinese black tea today, and I must say… its texture is lacking. It’s so thin in comparison!
However, the flavour is lovely as usual. And I’m sure I could supplement the texture by overleafing somewhat or steeping longer. But I didn’t.
I still really like this tea, with its orange and apricot flavours. However, I think Naissance is better. It’s just… more. Fancier. Dessertier. Other adjectives that don’t really exist-ier as well.
Oh this is really really tasty! Thanks so much for sharing, Dexter.
It’s super grainy. Reminds me a little of the roasted buckwheat teas. Nice and thick. A little sweet – maybe like roasted sweet potatoes? It’s that caramelized delightfulness that isn’t really sugary.
I don’t get chocolate, at all. Some of the flavours remind me of “dirt tea” but thankfully the dirt is rather mild. Most of the flavours are thick grains.
