7440 Tasting Notes
Had a cup of this this morning – wanted something new-er without being a new tea. I think this one may grow on me as i continue to drink it, though today was another day where i wasn’t focused on the tea enough. Need to have a day where i sit and really pay attention to this one for a good tasting note. Mostly i remember vague impressions of a sweetness that came though – possibly something to do with oversteeping this by accident this morning heh.
I had this multiple times while in vacation and this morning i was finally able to finish off the last of it. Nice to be getting through some of my older teas. I enjoyed this one while i had it, but it’s not my favourite of the damn fine teas. If something like this one comes back, not sure if i’d pick it up again. just not interesting enough to be worth the price, and if i’m getting an every day sort of tea from DFT, i’d rather pick up double knit or one of the other larger tins.
Back from vacation and while i was away, i managed to finish up the rest of this tin. My fondness for this tea seems to have diminshed. That’s not to say i don’t like it but i would give this a solid break before picking up more. It’s just not as chocolate/orange as it was initially for me, though i still adore the aromas :)
