2196 Tasting Notes
Spices. Orange blossoms. Flowers.
Hmm. Interesting. Not bad, but not my favourite profile. It’s almost too complicated, and doesn’t let me wallow in anything.
Also, it says on the packet that it’s a black tea but on here it says it’s a green blend. At any rate, it’s astringent. Even with milk.
Thanks so much for letting me try, MissB. It’s a neat combination of flavours but I would not search this out…
I still have so much of this tea.
Which is good.
I forgot how delicious and amazing it is. Licorice and spice, but no licorice gross sweetness.
(Even steeped for some ridiculous amount of time since I reflexively turned off the timer yet forgot to remove the steeping baskets from my mugs.)
This is really a good tea, but the obvious seasoning powder in it kinda creeped me out.
It doesn’t necessarily smell mega caramel until you add hot water to it. And the caramel goes so well with the roasted flavours in the houjicha.
But yeah. The powder lining the bag I have it in. Kinda gross.
In my mug today at work again. I’m trying to drink some of these older flavoured teas.
Oh, it’s so good. Tea, I’m going to miss you once I finally manage to drink you up.
It has a bit of a bite at 4:30, but it’s still delicious. Nothing added to my cup today. :)
