Story Time:Well it’s hurricane party weather, but since I don’t really drink, I am going to try to get threw by tea samples I have been meaning to finish.
Tea Time: This one was given to me by Awkward Soul. Thanks for the sample!
The dry leaf smells lightly like red hots…. ME GUSTA! The liquor is a nice royal golden yellow and smells still like red hots, but slightly savory.
No sweetner: pleasantly grassy and with some mild spice warm flavor and a hint of bitter.
Little sweetener: Kinda the same but less bitter.
More sweetener: should havn’t added as much as I did. It does taste a little more like red hots with a pinch of savory.
The thing I like about this tea is that the spice level isn’t exaggerated. It won’t give you hot lips, but it has a nice savoy warm hue and tongue tingle that makes me love spicy food. It fits well with the green tea base. I would have to give this tea nickname, I would call it mexican; if only I had a burrito to compliment it right now.
Overall a nice cupa tea. Very warming and savory. I only wish I brewed it hotter.
I would recommend this to mild spice people or spicy flavor lovers.
