47 Tasting Notes
Although the directions call for a boiling-steep method, this tends to make a very astringent concentrate best diluted with milk and sugar. When done in a bag and steeped for 5 minutes at 200F it was weak and disappointing. However, when left loose in a mug of water at around 208F and allowed to sit until cooled, you get a warm spicy cup, a nice balance. Be wary of tea leaves in your teeth!
Made this for a friend and I just now. Quite nice, but it always tastes weak to me…
Lovely. Rich and aromatic. It’s raining in Seattle today and nothing could suit me better than a huge cup of tea before today’s adventures.
This is really becoming a comfort tea of mine.
Really good through the third infusion. I’ve been sharing it with the community house I’m staying at and they love it too!
When I was at the Field Museum of Natural History, I saw a diorama of a tea plantation in Sri Lanka.
Yummy! I loved the Tea Garden store too. They have pretty fountains and the Tea-ristas are wonderfully pleasant.
Normally I never add anything to my tea. But chai is my exception. This morning…too much milk :(
I love this tea. The more I drink it the more I pick out delightful milk chocolate notes. Maybe hints of cardamon.
