As per JC recommendation I brew 2 heaping tsp in 200 ml glass pot short steeps 5/5/10/15/20 sec none of the steeps are weak. Very chocolaty and malty. Wet leaves smell of honey and tobacco. There is some rye bread sourness and slight spice comes at the very end. I can’t decide which method I prefer. Both produce very different results.

Hah, the art for this tea is cute!

Terri HarpLady

That it is! But I thought the name of the tea was Chinese New Year :)

boychik

i think it would be a splendid name for this tea:=)

Terri HarpLady

That’s actually the name on the label. When I drank it, I was looking under that as the name, but someone had entered it under Yunnan Golden Tips already.

boychik

You are absolutely right Terri. I haven’t even noticed it because its white letters on yellow

Revisiting . I’ve had quite a few shu since I had this one. Still love it. Maybe even more. It’s not boring smooth but its very pleasant. Wet leaves smell of dried cherry. Brew is a dark red color. Some fruity and dark chocolate flavors. I did shorter steeps than last time

Dried cherry and chocolate sound amazing

Those are my faves. It’s possible I just hallucinate. I want chocolate and dried cherries;)

Well, today is my ATR day. Its my 3rd tea. i want to give Romanoff another chance, maybe its my taste buds or very very cold weather.
This tea is incredible but it wasnt love at first sight. Dry leaves smell like strong sweet liquor. i steeped it according to ATR suggestions. Hot it tastes weird. I LOVE pu, figs, sesame seeds but this combination was just wrong to me. some woodiness probably from pu wasnt working. I could taste sweet fennel but no coconuts. i was thinking that it was smart of me getting only sample until it cooled… then i tried it again. oak woodiness some how disappeared. and I decided to add tiny less than 1/4 of tsp of maple syrup. its magic. I love it. its definite repurchase in a near future.

Preparation
1 tsp 6 OZ / 177 ML

Amazing . I was so afraid that this tea is just a hype. It captures all the challah bread with orange bits and almonds. It’s as sweet as bread should be, rich in vanilla and marzipan, and cinnamon. I finished the cup wanting more but it’s enough for tonight. My daughter begged me to have a sip and declared that she is finishing a cup. But I didn’t surrender . Easy 100

So glad you liked it :-)

boychik

Thank you Morgana. I thought I was so over flav teas but Brioche just proved when its done right I’m all for it. Lets see if I will be same enthusiastic about the rest of my order with ATR.

caile

Nice that it lived up to the hype! Hopefully the rest are good as well!

boychik

I really hope so. When it doesn’t work for me I get upset like a lil girl. Silly me;)

pyarkaaloo

this sounds truly wonderful…between you & Morgana, this one is really moving itself to the top of my shopping list ;) all the flavor notes are simply too much to resist!

boychik

Pyarkaaloo, I wish I order 2oz but got only sample sizes. I would send some your way. Im almost done w/ mine;). Its more economical to get samples and find out if you really like it. im not crazy about Romanoff already:(
If I get free ship promo again I’ll let everyone know.

Jude

Challah with marzipan and cinnamon – right on!

boychik

thanks Jude, now i want Challah with sesame seeds (my fav);)
