Recent Tasting Notes
paid a mere 3.25 euros for 450gr at a local store, and didn’t expect much of it, as I just needed a Ceylon (make my own breakfast blends).
Well, I guess I am in for a surprise….
wonderful smooth golden cup with honey-sweet aftertaste. No astringency at all.
After the launch party for our TV show, we hadn’t eaten much, so we stopped at a small afghan place. While waiting, I browsed the shelves and found this in half kilo packs.
The anticipation of the ride home turned to consternation as I opened the packet. It smelt of menthol.
I brewed a pot anyway.
The cardamom smell, previously absent, did come out as the water was poured on.
The first sip was nice, mildly cardamommy.
Then the mentholation hit.
I have no idea what is wrong and why it tastles like mothballs. I only know I have 498grams that I am never ever ever going to drink.
Selling this tea should be an indictable offence.
