42 Tasting Notes
i bought some leaf tea a couple of years ago at this place. this one among them. i drank a lot of them and i remember really liking it. now i opened the can just to find out some leaf remained at the bottom. it was quite time to take them to the cup.
now on this cosy afternoon there was no question whether i’m gonna like this one. and still it surprised me. i think this is just as close to perfection as a fruit tea can get. it’s really smooth, kinda flossy – it is one of those you ever dream about having at the fireplace (hence the Hungarian name “Fire in the hearth”). the almond was a really good ideo btw, it truly fits in
some punsch flavour with cinnamon (which i missed though, it should be stronger in my opinion), to savour with orange if possible. kinda sad i didn’t find any so i had to stick with honey and nothing else. was really good still. note to self: i shell try it with orange once
fruit tea with honey and lemon this time. not my favourite, bit too sour for my taste. than again, this one have been in my collection for years now, it has possibly lost its flavour on the wait. i was actually surprised when i read it should have some vanilla in it. so i think that’s what happened. too bad.
My last tea tonight, with a little less leaf to make it charming and some sugar to enhance the brilliance of its taste. This is truly the king of all teas. Never had better. Heck, call me traditional but every time I think about tea, a cup of the good old Twinings Earl Grey is what pops into my mind. It’s perfection itself. No doubt.
