I figured now is as good a time as any to revisit this one in comparison to the Teavivre Tan Yang I just tried. I have enough of this pouch left for one more cup after this, so I will be able to revisit again before I’m out. I suppose I also need to dig out my Tan Yang from China, see how it compares, and see if either this one or the Teavivre one come close to replacing it.
I’ve also wanted to re-try this one because immediately after drinking it last time I started having some kind of weird, sweet aftertaste for a few days, and then I was unsure of whether the sweet notes in this tea were really real or not.
Turns out they were sorta real. This tea has a ton of molasses notes to it, and that strong raisin is back especially in the aftertaste. I do think it is less sweet than the last time I drank it, curse my wonky tastebuds. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t delicious. It is really an excellent tan yang. And now I am even more antsy to try Teavivre’s again, because I am hoping that brewed properly with good water it is similar, because it’s less than half the price!
