9 Tasting Notes

Of the few Thai Tea’s available locally, this is my favorite. It brews true to what I expect Thai Tea to taste like. It has a lightly spiced earthy tone to it. It’s nice and red-orange.

I’m very fond of this tea. It’s a rich black tea with a lovely semi-sweet nutty flavor. It is wonderful for savoring and enjoying with (or as) a treat.

The flavor profile provided by Tao of Tea is spot on. I was particularly fond of the sweet potato undertones. This tea was fantastic and held up to repeated steeping without astringency as promised. Would drink again.

I find this Lapsang Souchong to be somewhat less bitter than other’s I’ve tried. Really though, I feel this tea is a blending tea and is a bit strong on it’s own.

I didn’t like this tea. The description sounded good, but it had fruity notes, not fruit flavor, but notes and I just didn’t like it. I think I just prefer darker black teas.

This is one of my favorite blends. It’s basically a tempered Lapsong Souchong. It combines the best of that with the best of a nice rich black tea. It’s hard to mess this one up and it can stand alone or hold up to milk.

This blend changes every year. I have an older blend in my drawer right now, which I like very much. Rich, a little smokey and a little spicey. Mostly just a nice rich tea though.
