drank Caramel Sweetheart by Yumchaa
293 tasting notes

This a sample I received from my dear cteresa.She wrote on the bag “stir it well !” so did I (sometimes I am very docile :) )

At the very first sip I was like …ohhh the tea taste is like a David’s tea…a special taste I always had in any David’s tea I tried.And I found it weak, very weak.

Disregarding this " tea signature", continuing sipping it, I definitively recognized a keemun and was more satisfied.
The caramel is really well balanced,and cocoa is present but really much on the background.

cteresa mentioned to add some milk, I’ll try this way next time.

A decent tea, but for a chocolaty & caramel tea I do really prefer Wedding Imperial, it has much more personality to my opinion.

Preparation

My favorite chocolate tea right now is Thé du Loup – which is also quite dry. Wedding Imperial is a tea I am on my second tin of (it was my very first Mariage tea!) and maybe I am a bit tired of it because of it, but find it tricky sometimes.

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard

94 to 90 : Excellent tea, often in my cupboard

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even nice, why not having it sometimes, but well, not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this tea ?!?!?
