601 Tasting Notes
1 tea bag used
Extremely bitter and flat-tasting. I was given this tea bag as a part of “student welfare week” at my school so I’m not sure how fresh it is. It smelled fruity in the bag even though it tastes like a breakfast tea. I’m guessing that this may not be a representative of the actual flavour and I will withhold my rating.
Brewed tea has a strong warm apple cider aroma with clove spice. I can also detect a type of soft smoothness/creaminess that I think is coming from the black tea. Fruity notes in the brewed aroma.
3.5 minute infusion may have been a bit too long for this one. I’m sensitive to the bitterness here. I would also consider infusing at a lower temperature Seems to be a very nice mix of flavours. I would definitely give this one another try in the future.
Thanks to MissB for sharing a sample with me!
