8 Tasting Notes
My grocery store is no longer going to carry loose leaf tea, so I picked this up because it was $1 for 100 grams. I used 2 teaspoons in 16 ounces sweetened with Splenda and a little bit of milk. I really enjoyed this tea. Medium-strong malty flavor without any bite. I think this will become one of my go to teas for everyday.
I received this as a sample with my teavana order. I’m new to tea, and I have been sticking to basic blacks. I did not enjoy this tea at all. It smell nice, almost like cider. I did not like the spicy/peppery taste. I will save it for a few months from now as my tastes develop more and try it again.
I was a little put off by the oily layer on top, but once I got past that it was really good. I sweetened it just a little. It was a very satisfying winter treat; the peppermint smell is great, but the taste not too overwhelming. I could really taste the chocolate. I only steeped once, since the chocolate pieces were melted away. I used 3 tsp for 16 ounces.
