1568 Tasting Notes
I’m not feeling too great this evening, so I’ve turned to some comforting teas. Since I don’t want to use up my Ginger Sage Winter Spa Blend, I’m having this with honey.
It’s pretty good, but I still think it’d be better as an herbal. There’s not enough puerh in it to balance out the tulsi and other herbs (mostly tulsi!).
Sipping it with a small amount of honey.
Had this tea last night AND this morning! So delicious.
Mostly I went for it because I have no milk of any kind, and I’m not interested in getting dressed in outside clothes to go buy milk. :)
Still, it was an excellent choice.
(1st steep 4 minutes, 2nd steep 6 minutes)
SUCH a great morning tea, OMG. I understand why they sell out of this one SO fast. I love a rich CTC if it manages to not go super bitter, and this is one of the best ones I’ve had.
Definitely need my mom to pick more of this up for me. :) She does, after all, live closer than I do.
Ohhhh, tea of teas. You are the bestest “traditional” chai I’ve ever had. It tastes so similar to the chai I used to get at this tiny vegetarian Indian restaurant that sadly closed a few years ago. Every pay weekend I used to go in and order two dishes, one to eat there and one to go. :) They had this incredible eggplant and chickpea curry that I still miss.
Today I had you while making pyrahi (Cranberry ones and peach ones! Although the dough was too stiff so I [GASP!] had to make them in muffin tins so they wouldn’t loose all the juicy fruity goodness. Gramma would be displeased.) and you were delicious.
Thank you, CrowKettle! I appreciate you including this in your package.
I quite like it. Not much green tea, mostly just ginger and lemony goodness. I added a bit of honey for extra comfort.
I did steep this the Silk Road way. 1 tsp leaves to 16 oz water. So YMMV, etc.
Flavors: Ginger, Lemon
I picked this up in the sale. No, I didn’t get 4/$10, although it was tempting to stock up on Root Beer Float. I ended up deciding I didn’t love the tea enough, what with all the tea I already have! Restraint, I sometimes has it.
Anyways, I got this because I hadn’t tried it and Sil was singing its praises. I’m having it hot right now, and will cold brew the last of it later this week once I have room in my tiny fridge.
It’s tart-sweet, with vanilla and fake cherry-almond flavour. I am seriously impressed, this is really spot on. I think I’d like it hot better with some honey, and I think the cold brew will turn out really well too.
I’m glad I picked this up!
If I get a chance I’m definitely getting more.
It’s turned into more of a delicious spiced cake flavour, especially with cream. With some molasses (not enough!) and a bit of gingery warmth. So good, especially since our mornings have a bit of a chill to them now.
I think I like this tea best with a splash of cream and a touch of maple syrup. Just a little something to take the edge off the charcoal-roasted-chestnut flavour.
This is going to be SUCH an awesome Christmas tea, because a bag of roasted chestnuts tends to be around $10, and the tea is just much more reasonable to have on a regular basis!
Flavors: Chestnut, Roasted, Roasted nuts
