This is the end of my sample, which saddens me. Although I guess really it just means I need to buy more. Anyway, after seeing Rabs’ log from a while back, I decided that I also have to try this iced. I had kind of a stupid amount left in the tin, enough for like, one and a half cups, so I decided to just dump it all into the teapot and dilute it a bit with ice water.
The first steep made me decide against continuing the dilution. It was just “all right.” Pleasant enough to drink, but not some sort of revalation. The second steep, though, I didn’t dilute at all, and HOLY BUCKETS is this good. I would never have guessed that this stuff would taste so good cold, but there’s this sweetness to it now that just goes perfect iced. I’m not getting very much in the way of maltiness, but, come to think of it, when is the last time that you saw sweetness and maltiness in the same room together?!?! Could it be….they are the SAME PERSON? and THEY, which is to say HE (it/she), STOLE DUCHESS MCSNOOTY’S DIAMOND NECKLACE!
Ahem, got a little carried away there at the end. Also, I am now getting malty notes in the aftertaste.
