Recent Tasting Notes
Now that I am officially back to tea tasting after a short hiatus due to trying to get my digestion issues back on track – I decided to start with some herbals and work my way around back up to my daily cuppa’s!
This is one of the first ones I started with – other than all the peppermint I have been drinking!
This one really surprised me. It was better than I anticipated.
Once Infused it was a little murky but the flavor is just as it starts Ginger and Fennel and Cinnamon. There is a surprising yet welcomed savory-brothiness to it, too!
This is a fine herbal tisane, indeed!
This is bagged in a muslin-like bag that is similar to the type of bagged teas you might get from Kusmi. My only complaint thus far with the bag is that I think it would be better if it were a little larger… although since it is a cotton fabric, it allowed for proper expansion because it stretched a bit. I guess there is just a part of me that always seems to want to have as much room as possible for the tea leaves to do their thing.
Anyway, it smelled lovely before brewing – pleasant and spicy. The brewed tea smells very much the same, although it is a mellower fragrance.
This is really nice. A bit on the mellow side for a chai – not overly spicy, which typically, I do tend to favor, but it is nice to taste a mild chai from time to time. This is remarkably well-balanced, I must say. It allows for the true flavors of the spices – not just the warm or the heat of the spices, but also the more subtle tones of the spices, to be explored.
It’s a little spiced, a little earthy, warm and inviting. I like it a lot.
I enjoyed this straight, (not a latte) but I think it would make a really nice latte too. And the cotton muslin bag would make it VERY easy to go stovetop with this chai. Just cut off the tags and pop one or two of the muslin bags into the simmering milk. Less mess! And YUM chai latte! Might have to try that sometime.
Ginkgo. I haven’t had a Ginkgo Flavored Tea in a while. I think the last one I can remember having was from Stash and I wasn’t really a fan.
This one is MUCH better.
The aroma and tastes of the herbal/spices in this are all very gentle and I like that. The Sencha is pretty good – be it as it’s bagged. It has a bit of lemon lingering and I really like that.
This one is a goodie!
This is pretty darned tasty… I was a little hesitant – as I am with all herbal teas, but, this has a really satisfying taste … chocolate-y notes from the cacao shells and a nice licorice-y taste that is sweet and a little zesty too. The ingredients make this very much like a chai, but, it doesn’t taste like a spicy chai, instead it seems like it’s been blended in such a way as to enhance calm… and I am feeling calmer by the moment as I sip this.
This is loose leaf in a cotton mesh bag of sorts. It smells like spices – stereotypically Chai Spices.
The black tea base is a little weak but the spices pair well and are not overwhelming. It does taste a bit earthy on the end sip…that’s a neat change.
I wasn’t sure how I would feel with the cotton mesh bag but it’s a pretty dandy bag method so I’m cool with that.
