While it’s usually kind of fun to try to pick out all the various flavor notes in straight teas, sometimes it’s nice to just have the name of the product tell you what to expect. It tastes like – that’s right – potatoes with apple & cinnamon, and makes for a surprisingly refreshing beverage. I found the liquor a bit thin, but I suspect that can be remedied by using more leaf and/or less water. A solid offering that I look forward to playing with more!

Bio

I grew up in New Jersey drinking Celestial Seasonings, and now I live in England, where I developed a taste for a good builder’s brew. Sometime in 2012 I bought my first loose teas, and my collection has since spiraled out of control. Still quite a novice, due to not drinking enough tea to keep pace with the amount I keep buying.

Some things I’m pretty sure I do like:
- most florals (jasmine, orange blossom, osmanthus, etc)
- buttery, vegetal greens
- malty blacks (usually with milk & sugar)
- oolongs that aren’t too heavily roasted

Not really feeling the flavored teas lately, for whatever reason.

All tasting notes use unfiltered hard tap water, unless otherwise specified.

No real method to my numerical ratings yet, but we’ll see what develops. So far I’ve only given ratings of 90 or higher if I actually get excited while drinking the tea.
