Recent Tasting Notes
So let me preface this by saying I’m not sure if this is the right tea… I bought two teas from a seller each one was $8.80 and their bags and labels were the same when I got them and I’m not entirely sure which one is which. I have a message to the seller so she can help me but until then, I’ll assume it’s this one.
This is my most recent batch of Rizhao black teas and this is also the least expensive one I’ve found. It’s also my absolute, hands down, favorite one. The dark chocolate (think bakers chocolate), with strong cinnamon, and honey notes seriously make me want to do cartwheels. I can’t even fully explain how delicious this was. Even drinking it in a travel mug. I got 3 amazing steeps (all with deep flavor) out of it using my new ultimate favorite travel mug:
It was expensive ($40 with shipping), but is perfect in my opinion. It’s mostly stainless steel and glass. You put the tea at the bottom and push this button that opens the filter. Let it steep. Then turn it upside down until the tea drains from the bottom and push the button again and it closes the filter. Works perfectly. I think I hit the jackpot. I was about to order another, but the seller I ordered from doesn’t have them anymore. Bummer. Other sellers are trying to get upwards of $70 for it and there’s no chance I’d pay that.
Anyway, super stoked about both purchases.
