6 Tasting Notes
Smooth, light – the perfect oolong. One scant teaspoon will do it, and I was able to steep it twice with the second time being only slightly more astringent.
Considering it’s perfect and affordable, I’ll probably stick with this as my oolong.
The first time I tried this, I thought it was an alright black tea with very bland vanilla flavor, almost more of a scent than a flavor. Then I realized I should probably sugar it up to bring out the flavor, and that worked. A fair amount of honey turned this into a delicious vanilla drink, though I don’t know if it’s a good tea per se. Not what I’m looking for when I want a cup of tea, but it might make a good iced tea.
Mighty Leaf’s silk tea bags hold a large amount of long leaf tea and have the space to let them steep, so that’s nice.
I love this stuff, both for the pick-me-up and the way it has a light planty taste which goes really well with honey and milk. I steep it for 8-10 minutes or whatever in not-yet-boiling water. I think that’s per package instructions.
When I drink this I’m drinking like a Uruguayan soccer (er, football) star!!
Pretty good. Refreshing. The spearmint and lemongrass are little light for my tastes, just hints of flavor.
This is a basic strong black tea, not too bitter. It tastes very “Indian” to me, if I can describe it like that, especially mixed with hot milk. It could easily make an excellent, authentic-tasting masala tea or chai. In the box it is a lightly-smelling long leaf black tea.
“Kalami” is, according to my 5 minute google research, an Indian term for long-leaf or whole-leaf Assam tea. It’s intended for Middle Eastern markets. Kalami is opposed to barooti, which is broken-leaf Assam.
Did I mention it came buy-one-get-one so I now have 800g (nearly two pounds) of it? I’m thinking of giving away a box to a friend. Or just making tons of chai by the pitcher for the next year!
