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!
Thanks for sharing this one with me variaTEA this is my first chance to try tea from nepali tea traders (i think, unless my tea sister has sent some my way previously) and it was delicious! a very smooth cup, with a bit of maltiness and some sweetness. a little bready but just a great cup of tea to start the morning off. I’d pick up more of this for sure.
I need to write another tasting note about this one when i can pay attention. I sort of sipped on this throughout the day – gonfu style but never really had a chance to just sit and focus on it. I do remember being pleasantly surprised at the initial cup of this one, as it wasn’t quite what i was expecting. looking forward to trying this again with more intent and focus.
