2971 Tasting Notes
I was going to have a cup of Premium Taiwanese Assam this morning. I sleepily measured out the tea, the water was hot, the tea was steeped, then I sat down to drink. I was thinking to myself, “Something is different. This seems to have lost something.” It wasn’t as sweet. It wasn’t as chocolatey. It wasn’t bad, it was nicely bold & deep, but not what I was expecting. Then I realized I’d made a cup of the ‘upgrade’ by accident. Nothing wrong with it, nothing missing, it’s just not the same tea.
This is a sipdown!
I’ve really enjoyed this Brew, & sadly, there is only enough for one more pot of it…sigh…to be shared with good company in the form of my sons.
Irish breakfast, green vanilla (the only flaw in this recipe, IMO. When I experiment with my own version, the green will be left out), sweet potato, & cinnamon. Yum!
Another sample, care of TastyBrew. Thanks! :)
A mild green tea with Spearmint & Lemon Myrtle. I’m not always a huge mint fan, & I much prefer peppermint over spearmint, but this tea is a pleasant after-breakfast cup. This isn’t bitter at all, & is even mildly sweet. The sip starts out a little creamy, followed by a refreshing sensation, but ends somewhat astringent, & that’s the only thing I don’t care for about it.
I decided to have a cup of this chai with my breakfast with a little stevia. It’s a nice spicy one, & the only thing that would have made it better would have been some canned coconut milk, or actually the cream off the top of a can of coconut milk, or maybe some french vanilla coconut creamer. Thanks to Tasty Brew for this sample!
I’m really enjoying this tea today. I steeped it for 3 minutes, & then re-steeped for 5. Both were delicious! This has a really nice dark flavor & is seriously smooth, honestly today it is reminding me somewhat of Premium Taiwanese Assam, because of the really smoothness & even-ness of it, but of course it is different. The depth of this tea is very bassy, & I think it would especially appeal to coffee drinkers.
And black tea lovers like me.
