3048 Tasting Notes
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.
My daughter Jessica’s favorite tea is Egyptian Licorice (Yogi). She’s been drinking it since whenever that company started making it (some time in her childhood, she’s 30). Before that we used to drink another licorice blend. She loves licorice tea! But she also wanted some caffeine. I served her this, & she LOVED it!! As do I.
We went a little long on the first steep, so it was a little bitter, but we enjoyed it anyway. The 2nd steep was actually the better of the 2, in that the bitterness was gone & the various other flavors were even more balanced. Yum! My hat is off to BoxerMama for dreaming up this one, & to Stacy for making it happen!
