702 Tasting Notes

35

I had the Loose Leaf sample size, it was supposed to make 7-10 cups, apparently my teaspoon is too large as it made more like 6

Amount: 4.5 scoops tea to 3 cups of tea (6 ounce cups)

Time: a little over 8:30 minutes (oopse!)

Served: Hot
AmazonV Smell: cinnamon, clove, ginger
AmazonV Flavor: spicy, peppery, medium body

MilitiaJim Smell: spiced cider without the apple
MilitiaJim Flavor: cloves with a hint of ginger

Aftertaste: cinnamon, cardamon

I tried adding honey and lactose-free milk, that calms the spicy after burn

too spicy for me, it was OK with the honey and milk but it’s not going to be a stock tea for me as i’d have to cut it with a less spicy tea

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 8 min or more

Smell: Sweet plums, and a hint of spice with a beautiful red color
Flavor: plum with some spice, light body, but none of the sweetness you smell

I added some wild huckleberry honey from NY half way through, it didn’t change the flavor much, nor does adding german rock sugar, it’s a very strong flavor

Profile

Bio

I am The Devotea USA. I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).

~~~~~~~~*~
0-25=Bleh! not again if it were free
25-50=Acceptable, if it were free or there were limited other tea options
50-75=I might purchase this tea from time to time, or select it while out
75-100=A staple in our cupboard from now on, I will purchase and keep purchasing
