This tea is a real treat. The taste is robust and musty, and the bitterness is laced with this fabulous caramel taste that comes out so subtly that I find myself confused about what the heck I am drinking. Plus, you can re-infuse the leaves 4-5 times, which helps since I can’t buy it online and would have to drive down to Kansas City if I wanted more. I am going to enjoy this tea love affair even more since it is temporary!
This is one of two teas I bought from Tea Drops in Kansas City. I took a whiff of this sample and the caramel smelled so fantastic I took a leap of faith and got 2oz after asking the woman’s opinion of it. She was honest and said she didn’t like it because it was too much like coffee, and that if I liked coffee I might like it. She also said that this was originally just a temporary tea for Christmas time but due to popular demand, they made it permanent.
I just brewed myself a cup, with a 1/2 tsp of rock sugar and it is fabulous. I haven’t tried many pu-erhs in my day, but the employee was absolutely right – this tastes like slightly sweetened black coffee with hints of caramel. This being said, it is bitter and full-bodied, and the caramel adds just the right amount of interest to this coffee-flavor. I will miss this tea when it’s gone, but I think my next cup I will add a bit more sugar and maybe a splash of milk. Bravo tea drops!
I had a cup-o-this tea at a tea shop I stumbled across while exploring Kansas City yesterday. The woman behind the counter said that it was her favorite, so I had to try it. The vanilla was rich and creamy, and the black tea was strong and smoky. Very nice. Too bad the only way you can get it is to go to Missouri!
Had a pot of this hen I was out for lunch today. The people at The Groove Train actually put the teabag into e pot of hot water for me! Wow! A lot of times they don’t, despite the fact that I.am.paying.THEM.to.serve.me.tea. WTF.
But I digress.
This is quite a nice chai, heavy on the clovey, star anisey side, a little light on the tea side. I quite often order it when I’m out though, because it’s a good, though predictable, non-powdered chai option.
Hmmm, green tea with apricot flavouring and buits of dried honeydew melon. Served quite presumpively with no sugar on the side, so I drank it sugarless, it could have used a touch.
The apricot flavour was great before the water was added but disappeared in the brew. The underlying green was a little bitter, the melon covered it up. Not a bad effort for a silk baggy thing
