414 Tasting Notes

drank Sweet Almond by Herbal Infusions

1.5 tbsp for 375 ml

Black tea astringency is overpowering the flavouring. I will have to try to infuse at a lower temperature.

Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 4 tsp 13 OZ / 375 ML

drank Ginger Lemongrass by Tea Forte
414 tasting notes

1.5 tbsp for 375 ml of water

As an herbal infusion, this is very plain-tasting to me. The licorice certainly does add a nice element of interest. I am not a fan of lemon-grass as a feature ingredient as I don’t like the aftertaste. I like the ginger in this one- adds a good level of spice that I can actually feel. The resulting brew has a bit of a brothy thickness to it. I can hardly taste any mint. A stronger mint flavour would definitely be invited- I think it would compliment the profile quite nicely.

Boiling 6 min, 0 sec 5 tsp 13 OZ / 375 ML

drank Chai Guarana by DAVIDsTEA
414 tasting notes

May benefit from a longer infusion time. I can taste the anise. Overall, flavour is dilute and slightly thin-tasting. Mouthfeel on the aftertaste is slightly reminiscent of grainy texture. Nice cinnamon flavour, balanced well with other flavours. Slight peppery spice but not spicy. Something in this brew reminds me of strong pu-erh flavour.

1/2 cacao ball for 375 ml of water

I didn’t prepare it the recommended way because I wanted to see how it would taste on its own. Infused for 10 minutes. Resulting brew has a very thin mouth-feel. Dark chocolate taste slight bitter taste at the back of the throat.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more
