328 tasting notes

My first time brewing this, and wow, not sure what to think. I thought this was a chocolate tea, but it is peppermint, a lot of pepppermint with some chocolate underneath. Irresistibly reminding me of After Eights – I know just which of my friends is more likely to loooooove this. But After Eights are not a particular favorite of mine. I am still pretty surprised by its taste.

About the tea itself, the base is very smooth. Pink peppercorns are included and are highly visible in the dry tea (which is oh so so pretty) and I think it adds a resonance to the tea of subtle heat. People sensitive to pepper, chillis or ginger might not like it as much as I do, but as I said, it´s subtle. The red “lips” seem to melt and add texture and sweetness to the tea.

Bio

Inconstant tea drinker – I mostly drink tea when not too hot. I hang around steepster much more frequently in (northern hemisphere) cold season.

- Teas -

I like all sorts of tea, flavoured and unflavoured, though I am picky. I am always willing to try anything new. I am now particularly interested in single origins.

I am one of those people who actually loves Lapsang Souchong. I am not crazy about Earl Grey, in general. I don´t quite get Darjeeling teas, but I am trying to make sure …

I like rooibos, though not all bases. I loathe hibiscus. I do not like fennel/liquorice/anise in blends or teas with chicory. I am picky about what I consider true cinnamon.

As you can probably tell from my cupboard, the brands I find more interesting right now are Mariage Fréres,Thé-o-Dor and Yumchaa.
