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.

Encore is an absolute gem on a rainy day, no question about it.

This is really becoming a comfort tea of mine.

Me too! It’s my tea equivalent of a soft, fuzzy sweater.

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.

That sounds really intereating. Are you referring to the Field Museum in Chicago?

DId you happen to know of any good tea places there? We’re heading to Chicago in two weeks and I’m trying to figure out where the best places to go for tea are.

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.
