1018 Tasting Notes
All the tasting notes of this say that its a delicate tea, so I’ve been somewhat nevously avoiding it, because I do not have the gentlest steeping hand.
Hmm. The apple taste is a somewhat more sour apple taste, which I actually like. I’m a fan of crisp apples.
The rose is the factor thats a little puzzling to me. Its a nice rose, but at least in this steeping, I’m not seeing an immediet relation between the two flavors.
Further experimentation is needed!
I found the tiniest tin of this at my local Marshalls, and justified myself into buying it.
Hmm. Pear. I never know quite what I feel about normal pears, but this isnt half bad. Its not quite as caramelly as I was hoping, but you get a nice earthy note, and the pear tastes properly like a pear, not like something from a bottle.
Its amazing how fast someones tastes can change.
Earlier this year, when I was just starting to get into loose leaf, I got this. I had heard that is was pretty good and I was feeling adventurous.
And I liked it! It struck me as being a very good rose tea. But now that I’ve tried more tea, my affection for it has waned a little.
Its still a decent rose black, but I have discovered better ones. I’ll still drink this up without problems.
