5075 Tasting Notes
mmmm i like this one! even though it has a little astringency to it, it’s not unpleasant. I could get behind drinking this one on a more regular basis if i needed a darjeeling to add to the rotation. I still think that i’d rather drink a straight up black tea most days though.
sipdown! i’m running behind with my tasting notes…“early” night testing for work and now i have additional testing to do. I’ve been drinking a bunch of teas this morning but i haven’t had a second to start logging them. this was one of my earliest teas. An assam that is bold, malty but also fruity and sweet.
I finally thought to check out the company website again while drinking this. I’m sad to say that it looks like they’ve shut the doors and are no longer in business. It makes me a little sad since i was certainly a fan of their tim finnegan’s wake up tea and was considering purchasing more. ah well. Cheers to you cuppa crew! hopefully you’re doing some great somewhere else!
sipdown! i really need to try the other teas from justea as i have enjoyed this one. It doesn’t top my list of blacks, but it is a solid cup of black. a little astringency but nothing that makes it undrinkable. mmmmm nice afternoon tea before dinner time. though i should probably stuop with the caffeine given that i need to go to sleep and then get up again at 3:30am for testing heh
