7674 Tasting Notes
This was on my wishlist and variaTEA obliged! I have to say, that this is a really good cup of tea. I’ve only had the one steep right now, but plan on having a few more today while i get through work. It’s smooth, some sweet potato like notes coming through…sweet and not at all astringent. This isn’t a BOLD brew but rather more of an easy drinking tea – a good intro tea for someone who wasn’t really a fan of black tea i would say.
Count: 110 (down from the 120 VariaTEA has me up to….need to get to 80 by end of july…)
brewed this hot, drank it mostly cooled heh. I like this one…a little strawberry, a little apple…some pear. Light in flavour but sweet, not sour like a lot of fruit herbals. I’d pick this one up again i think even with the light flavour because it’s smooth and different than other blends. thanks variaTEA!
another one from variaTEA – there will be lots of those coming in my tasting notes as i work through her samples in between trying to get some older teas drunk up. this was one i was hoping to try and i’m glad that i did. I didn’t get an overly sweet tea out of this one – rather it was a nice black tea with a sweetness hanging out in the background. Not sure if i need to jump on the bandwagon to get this again when/if it comes back, but i’d round out my cart with this if it was around. thanks for sharing madam!
Tea sent to me by a Tea Story. Ceylons tend to get a bad wrap around here – they’re often too brisk/coppery for a lot of folks or people think of red rose sort of experiences. I’ve had a few really great ceylons but this one is super. Missing from this cup is that brassy/copper note that a lot of ceylone have. Instead this is very smooth and easy to drink. Resteeps of this were also great – not diminishing in the flavour. Looking forward to trying a few more from a Tea Story if this is my first experience with them.
thanks so much for the sample!
