drank Prince Vladimir by Kusmi Tea
535 tasting notes

So this is my last cuppa this tea! I’ve had this sample flying around and hiding in many spots in my house; so I’m pretty lucky I found it. This tea has been a pretty interesting offer from Kusmi. I think that the couple teas I’ve had from them are actually quite good (Prince Fladimir, Caramel, and Cinnamon). But their descriptions really leave something to want. I was thinking of ordering from them earlier this year and the most difficult part is seeing “black/green tea, citrus, spices” on just about every tea! It’s hard to know what you want when descriptors sound so similar to one another.
I actually oversteeped this one today. I have no idea how long, but may have been up to 5 min. longer than intended. You know what? It’s no worse for it! I like to do these at the suggested lower temp. and that seems to help the flavor a lot. But this was just very good in the longer temp. This tea has some distinctly peppery notes that are interesting to pay attention to. I like drinking this tea a whole lot more during the winter, but I really wanted to get it down! I think that I prefer this one sans milk/sugar; as with most of my tea. But I do think that it has been a pretty nice tea.
