1933 tasting notes

I have a sample of this that I would like to drink down, but it’s one of those things where you have just enough that it will probably take a while. I might try cold brewing it for the summer, but I’m not sure how that would go with the white chocolate curls.

This is a pretty tasty tea overall. It’s rosy, it has that cookie-ish flavor I sometimes get from rose teas (brought out here by the chocolate). I dislike the oily scrim I get on the top of my tea from the chocolate, which is why I generally prefer not to have actual pieces of chocolate in my teas. But this isn’t too bad, thankfully, and I can certainly enjoy it.

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
