58 Tasting Notes
One of my favorite Oolongs from Samovar. Brandon made this for me this morning, it was the last of our stash. Very full bodied tea, floral nose with a buttery finish on the tongue. 2 pots of this helped put that extra step in me this morning. I wish I could drink this tea everyday without going broke.
This was bought at a Silk Road tea tasting in Marin. At the tasting this tea was great! He demonstrated a very short steep on this one. About 10-15 seconds. Got home, and of course I can’t get it to steep perfect again. I steeped this for about 40 seconds today. It’s a light green tea with smaller leaves so the crumbs sit in my glass, which I like a lot. Not the best green, but it’s pretty good.
I like to make this as a latte with SOY milk. I know some might argue it doesn’t bring out the same flavors as dairy milk because soy doesn’t have the same fat content that the spices like to cling to. The first time I had this was at Samovar and it was noticeably made with cows milk. I much prefer it made with soy. It’s better for you that way too.
2 cups boiling water.
2 small tbs of RAW cane sugar
2 large tbs of Masala Chai
simmer for just under 10 minutes
turn up the heat
add just under 2 cups of organic plain soy milk.
Bring to a boil until it starts to foam.
Shut the hit off and let it sit for 5-10 minutes.
I like to strain it into a pitcher and drink it all day long.
