480 Tasting Notes
So based on a list provided by someone on steepster, I think this may be discontinued, but I’m hoping maybe they’ll come up with a s’mores tea to replace it. It really is a nice sweet toasty tea, but it does feel like it’s missing something….perhaps graham crackers and chocolate? ;) First time I opened the bag, it didn’t smell anything like what I pictured, but it kinda grew on me. Hoping for a great replacement. Hint hint to DavidsTea!
Took me awhile to figure out if I liked this one. Kind of like a floral earl grey tea. Good for first thing in the morning, and maybe afternoon high tea with the girls! I’ll have a chance to find out this weekend as I’m having some friends over for our own high tea! Making scones, tea sandwiches, and desserts! So fun! And sometimes, I think, yummier than going out to a tea place.
Had my second cup this morning….never can decide whether I really like a tea until I’ve had my second cup. Really loved the smell out of the bag….very malty black tea smell. Once steeped, it reminded me of a strong Irish breakfast. Steeped it my usual 5 minutes for black tea and added my usual milk and sugar. Had that taste you get when you steep black tea a little too long. Not sure if I should try steeping it for less time or if I just don’t like it as much as other black teas. I prefer a really smooth black tea and this one wasn’t it.
