157 Tasting Notes
Second cup of this from Hopetoun tea rooms in Melbourne.
Just as sensational as the first
Yes yes Yes!
You can taste the coconut and nilgiri on the first sip, then the mango flavour in the back of your mouth.
Absolutely delightful. Will have again tomorrow
Couldn’t wait to try this again. This time, different staff, confused, lost my order, made me wait, then made it so weak it had no taste.
If I hadn’t found it brilliant yesterday, I’d never have it again
A cup of this to take away from the normally infallible Hopetoun Tea rooms in Melbourne. Unfortunately, a little under-strength. I didn’t mind the characteristics it had, but it didn’t have anything to back up the foretaste, no middle and certainly no aftertaste. Not much aroma either.
Will tray again today and see if it does better
I was seriously worried this would be awful.
I was seriously off base – IT’S A WINNER !
Perfect balance, quite peachy, sweet without sweetening.
I might asked to be rolled in this when I die
Seemed to be a mix of a nice ceylon with a not-as-nice chinese black. Good idea but turns out like a simplifies Breakfast blend. Possibly OK with milk and sugar
This is my third tasting note, but about my 30th cup of this tea.
It really is lovely, no bitterness. It’s a great start to my day.
It has a sweet barley straw thing going on.
Reasonable Darjeeling at twice the normal price.
No problem if the expectation hadn’t been high.
Plenty of mild flavour – not water, not strong. Faint, not unpleasant seaweed character mixed with earthy tones and some light fruit, like a pomegranate
All in all, not a bad drop.
Smooth smooth black – smooth like Keemun, strong like Yunnan – balanced sweetness. Will buy a stack for home tomorrow.
