3715 Tasting Notes
this was sent to me by Halieod a long while ago and it appears as though i haven’t had a chance to log it until now. I’ve had a number of cups of this, though its not always the first thing i reach for. What i like about this is that it’s a roasty taste, without being an oolong ;) I’m glad that i’ve had this one to try! Thanks Halieod!
I want to try and brew this like real chai with the next steeping. I had multiple steeps of this in the early morning and it is a terribly delicious chai. I’m quite happy with this monthly blend over some of the previous ones :) The base really works in this one to blend with the spices going on. I’m beginning to think that Verdant has got their chai going on, as I am a fan of a number of them :)
Brewed a cup of this much earlier in the morning. I had to open the seal to send some off to a tea friend so i figured that i was safe to try a cup before the holiday season ends in case i decided i MUST have moar! This is a highly satisfying cup of tea. It doesn’t scream cocoa but there is for sure a malt cocoa taste that runs through this cup. I can see enjoying this one until the last of it is gone :)
sipdown! Ok this needs to come back now as i’d like to reorder. I didn’t think i would, but today, it’s like i found the magic sweet spot. It was closer to 1TBS for 8oz and then steeped for about 6 mins. Now it’s a creamy, vanilla citrus blend..it’s like a delicious cake like thing. i don’t know..i can’t explain it but this? this is good. yes please!
mmm thanks for sharing this one with me dexter! This brings me officially to 149 – so i’m under my black friday goal and consider myself to be officially working towards tea purchases. 1 sipdown = 1 tea i can purchase lol.
This is a pretty decent assam. It’s got a bit of astringency to it, but not so much that it’s less enjoyable. There’s a teeeeny bit of sweetness hiding in the sip as well, it’s not a malty assam. :) i like this one!
Thanks for this one Terri! I think this one is my second favourite of the bunch you sent me. I guess i’m on a bit of a “let’s drink some oolongs” kick.
This one has less of the charcoal notes to it than the other, but is still clearly an oolong. It’s smooth tasting though and slightly fruitier than the others. Thanks again terri!
Gotta love getting paid to sit around and drink tea at home while taking care f house things :) this is another tea from Terri. I like this one a bit less than the other oolong from ttc today. This is more charcoal like and has that familiar roasty oolong taste.
Overall not a bad little tea but this one cup was enough!
