Recent Tasting Notes
This tea smells great. As soon as the hot water hit the tea, I could immediately smell it from a few feet away.
I had two cups of this (I tend to make at least two cups at a time whenever I make tea).
With the first, I was actually eating some indian food (Chicken Tika Masala and Whole Wheat Naan). The spices seem to overpower the actual black tea. Very distinctive cinnamon taste. Can’t say I know what cardamon tastes like, so I don’t know how much of a presence it made.
I also tried it with milk (fat free though, since that is all I have at the moment). Seemed to smooth the flavor a bit, although regular milk may work better. I don’t usually put milk in my tea though, so I don’t know if that is the case.
One thing I noticed, is that the flavor seemed to dull as the tea cooled off.
Pretty good for when I want some black tea, but don’t quite want it to taste like a black tea.
I normally drink this tea with milk, but with my cold I figured it might be best to skip that, so I just drank it plain with a teaspoon of honey. Even after a relatively short steeping time and added sweetener it has a pretty astringent bite to it that left a bit of a dry taste in my mouth, so I can see why many people don’t like this tea.
