1774 Tasting Notes
I had a cup of this earlier today as we sat in our icy-cold basement and I wanted to warm up a bit. ;P (Best complaints for the summer?) It was really good, considering root beer should be cold. I could taste the sasparilla and other spices – but they weren’t overwhelming.
Yes. So good. I might (might?) get a tin of this for the summer! The hype was right!
Thanks Sil for this sample. I enjoyed it and it helped me decide to order from TTC.
I drank the last of this with Lot 306 to see if I could notice any differences, but to be honest, I didn’t. They were both so simliar and I couldn’t quit describe the differences. I think until my palette becomes better refined I’m better served buying whichever one is cheaper! :D
This is the first of 9 samples I ended up with from TTC! I’m so excited. I wasn’t even sure where to start, but I’m very pleased with this one.
It smells like honey, and tastes almost like baked bread with honey and just the barest hint of cinnamon. It has a thicker mouthfeel than your average tea, and is rich with flavour.
It’s too bad I finished off my Butiki Mi Xian because I’m curious how they compare? I enjoy both blends (and am looking forward to resteeping this all evening) but can’t say what makes them different.
Flavors: Baked Bread, Cinnamon, Citrus, Honey
