8052 Tasting Notes
sample from cavocorax that i drank and screwed up yesterday. I meant to brew a single cup, but got distracted and brewed up my usual mug which is two normal cups. Sooo the flavour here was totally diluted :( I’ll have to pick this up at a later date to try again. Sorry for messing up the tea you shared cavo!
Sample from cavocorax this one wasn’t bad. it’s not a knock your socks off omg yes lease! sort of tea, but again, given that this is a canadian company, availability may win out next time i need to order. this is more milk chocolate than dark and the hazelnut is really in the background here. I wish it was a little more nutty and more like dark chocolate, but again, not half bad.
thanks kittenna for letting me try this one. I was surprised at how much i enjoyed this one. I really didn’t get any floral notes…it was mostly just sweet…and as it got colder, it struck me as being a little like a nice ceylon…but not sure where that was coming from. Given the likely priciness of this one, it’s not something that i see as being different enough to warrant keeping around, but it wasn’t bad. Maybe i just didn’t have particular expectations going in to this one either :)
Saw this in Cavo’s feed this morning, so figured i could start my day by trying it as well. 5 pearls for 3.5 min, just under boiling. This is a smooth brew, there’s no bitterness and i’m for sure getting some chocolate like notes at the back end of the sip. Not sure i’d keep this in my cupboard, but i’d happily add this to an order to get free shipping heh.
time to get to work on sipdowns…this weekend spent with tea friends means i’m back up to 87!
