1772 Tasting Notes
Thank you Curious Tea for giving me a sample for review!
I have to say that I am amazed with the presentation of this box. It’s beautifully wrapped, and the labels on the packaging are elegant and informative. Everything I need to know is right there.
I was very excited to brew this cup because I haven’t had darjeeling in a while, and this was supposed to be top quality. It’s light and fruity, with a little bit of a sharp tang that isn’t quite astringent. It’s fruity and I’m definitely getting peach notes. It’s refreshing. Even as it cools it doesn’t cross that line over into bitterness which is great; I’ve had a few darjeelings that went bad that way\.
Thank you for the sample!
Oooh. This is FANCY. Thanks Sil for the sample!
And this sipdown puts me at 150! Woooo!
It’s really rich and lightly smoky. I should have had this a few months ago when it was bitterly cold as this tea would be greatly comforting on a freezing night. It’s a little sweet, but I think I’m getting mushroom-y notes in it as well.
Fancy. This tea is fancy.
I bought 800g or whatever it was that DAVIDsTEA sells their bulk tea in. And I ask myself, ’Self, why did you do this?"
The answer is poor impulse control. The good news is that when I crave this tea I still really enjoy it’s coconut/anise creaminess, and it doesn’t seem to have lost any of it’s flavour in all this time either.
Self, have no regrets about this!
