106 Tasting Notes
If I understood Swedish I might know what I was drinking. My friend brought this back for me along with the plum fennel. Despite not knowing what it is, it tastes quite good so that’s really the most important factor, right?
Weird interesting somewhat intoxicating blend of plum, fennel and black tea. I love fennel/anise flavored things so this is right up my alley. most people who don’t like these flavors should probably stay away although I have converted a few.
Interesting powder chai mixture I found at a local market. can sneak up on you if you mix with a strong black and don’t add milk or enough sugar. Blending with Rooibos or Tulsi and I would only recommend using sugar. Milk tends to dilute the herbs too much in my experience, but a little won’t hurt if you really want it. Might try a Pu-erh chai with this one of these days when I’m feeling ambitious.
Only had a small amount of this so I savored it as much as I could. The age of the tea changed the flavor immensely compared to its modern equivalent. The aged version has a earthy-smokey-dusty-almost tree-like flavor and aroma that may or may not be able to stop time. Definitely an experience. Only wish I had enough for the ’58…
Blooming teas are always a fun little experience. not the best in terms of taste quality but the coolness makes it worthwhile, especially when you get a really nice bloom.
Excellent wild Pu-erh. sort of tastes like bamboo or if you’ve ever chewed on a chopstick. light but still earthy, i’ve gotten as many as 13 good infusions out of it before it lost it’s flavor.
Not top choice for drinking by itself. it does however blend with just about everything, which is its purpose. makes for excellent chai.
My favorite tea so far. the perfect balance of smokey and sweet. nice and dark but not too dark.
Smokey, crisp, very dark and aromatic. excellent fall/winter/rainy/snowy tea
