54 Tasting Notes

Finally cracked open the sample package!
I can’t drink black tea without milk and sugar, so I made this with milk and sugar.
The flavor was lovely and strong but it was missing some “high notes” that i have become really accustomed to in chinese teas, so ( to me) it was missing the rounded-ness and wasn’t was grounded as the chinese blacks i am used to.
Other wise it was a nice tea :) .

It was… ok.
Tazo has a fuller better flavor, this was kind of flat.

Very sweet. The batch I have is more on the green side. So it has the bready/pastry flavor of DD along with some green and some floral tgy like flavor. I like it <3 . Its a different flavor than the medium DD I got from Taiwan tea crafts, but I can say that I like the both of them.

Its pretty darn good. Reminds me of a more complex, less astringent, lipton black.
If you like lipton but want to try some loose leaf black tea this would be a great one to start with.
I followed the gaiwan instructions.
<3 I had to add milk and sugar after the rinse and first infusion but otherwise it was super!
But I still prefer green teas.

I like tea.
I started with Lipton’s black tea, then tried grocery store brand green tea, then the Sencha Matcha mix from the republic of tea, and now I’m getting my feet wet in the world of real Matcha.
