1708 Tasting Notes
Thanks Sil for sharing this with me. Someone must have had a particularly mouth-watering review because it was on my wishlist.
So my first cup of this was knocked over by the child and spilled all over my computer desk. Thankfully both laptops were saved! Yikes. There are seriously 2 safe spots in the entire house – she can reach everything!!!
My second cup is much better; I could drink it! It’s sweet and smokey and just a little bitter. I’ll have to try a lower temperature for the last bit, but I enjoyed trying this!
Thanks Sil! I’ve enjoyed so many flavoured teas from Lupicia, but I hadn’t actually considered try their straight teas. I’m happy for the chance to now!
It tastes like bread and honey! Wow. That’s actually the best tea I could have grabbed for breakfast! It’s also an easier tea to drink- less kicking me in the face with boldness etc. As it cool, it becomes a little bitter, but it’s still very tasty. I just better finish it up quickly!
Sil knows I’m experimenting with unflavoured teas, so she’s been super helpful sending me tons of teas to experiment with. Thank you! :D (219)
This was a nice assam – slightly malty, with a little bit of tobacco – but oh, so smooth. I didn’t even need to add milk or anything to it! I need to drink a few more of my loose samples down, and then it’s time to dive into my Lord Petersham bag!
