896 Tasting Notes
I enjoyed this one so much last night that I’m having it again this morning. It’s incredibly smooth and delicious. It morphs from steep to steep with some cups tasting deep and earthy while other cups are full of chocolate notes, hints of bread and honey, or leather and leaves. Every steep has been nice.
From the SanTEA Claus TTB
I think this is the last tea I need to review from this ttb. It’s taken me a while, but hey, I got it done. :)
I’m not a huge fan of white teas, but this one was a treat. The toffee flavor was light but present throughout the sip, and the tea itself had a clean – almost sweet – flavor. It was nice and refreshing while also feeling like a dessert tea.
This came to me from the very kind Blodeuyn. Thank you!
This is a fairly light and fruity black tea. There’s lots of citrus as well as tropical flavors. I definitely taste pineapple and mango. A floral note is also present though it is much lighter than the fruit. Overall a really nice blend.
So this has turned into a sipdown Saturday for me which is a good thing since I have quite a bit of tea on its way to me. Finishing off teas that I only have one or two teaspoons of seems like a good idea.
This tea is earthy and fruity. There’s a wood note along with leaves and wet earth as well as a sweet general fruitiness. The combination is very nice.
Earlier today I read bluebelle’s review of this tea, and it reminded me that I had one serving left that I’d tucked away. Yay! This is very nice. Deep chocolate, malt, and grain notes in a thick tea. As happy as I was to have it in my cup, I’m also glad I had that last serving because it made me realize that I have several teas in my cupboard with the same flavor profile, so saying good-bye (for now) to this one isn’t so hard.
Drinking my last bit of this. This is one of the only Assams that I drink straight. There is a nice fruitiness to it that adds some sweetness. It is also full of wonderful malt notes as well as caramel. The last time i had this I noted that it was a touch astrigent, so I lowered my water temp, and that fixed it. No dryness, just a nice smooth sip.
I’ll definitely pick up more of this at some point. It’s a very reliable and tasty Assam.
