1693 Tasting Notes
This is one of the many surprise teas that Sil sent me, buried in a box full of tins from Davids as a silly birthday present (which I love!)
I’m drinking this so I don’t have to add it to my cupboard. I have a lot to add. I’ve had a few people visit me this week and they all brought tea! YAY!
So this is a really nice black tea. I really am going to have to try Capital Teas at some point, once I make a bit of a dent in my unflavoured black collection! I’m tasting an interesting spice but it’s hard to describe what it is. Malt? Cinnamon? Nutmeg? I should resteep it for longer to see if I can tease those chocolate notes out!
I drank this today courtesy of VariaTEA and our pre-arranged tea box drops – the stealthiest swap ever! It was a nice passionfruit blend that I enjoyed, but it didn’t wow me enough to make me want more. Still, I’m very happy to have tried it because there are lots of Nina’s teas I enjoy and I need some way to narrow it down!
