1472 Tasting Notes
Sipdown (yay!). While I really liked the herbal notes in this, I’d prefer it without the oolong. This last cup, which was mostly tulsi, was really nice. :)
Thank you for sharing, Dinosara.
I don’t think I’ll be wanting this again. I have a bunch of my favourite tulsi tea, and I think I’m happy with that.
Not bad, but needs more sage. :)
It’s not quite what I was expecting, as the black tea is front-and-centre. Following it, I get some vanilla and sweetness from the blackberry leaves, and finally some sage.
I think I’d like it better with a little honey added, as the black base is somewhat astringent. And sage tea is better with honey anyways.
I’m glad I picked this up to try, but probably won’t get any more.
Flavors: Astringent, Blackberry, Sage, Vanilla
I had a bit of a disaster when I reached for the tin. headdesk I think I thought the lid was taped on because I hadn’t removed the tape? IDK. Thankfully most of the tea was saved, as I had just cleaned and dried the counter, and was also leaning against it. There might be a little more cat fur in the tea, but that’s OK. I’m the only one who drinks this one. :)
So, thank you so much Bear With Me! I love this one, and it’s one of those seriously expanding teas since the tin is still almost full!
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
