41 Tasting Notes
Just finished up my Assam Mangalam this morning. Not sure when I will be back to the Tea Haus to get more. Oh well.
I found I liked this tea very much. It has a lighter flavor then say the Irish Breakfast from TeaGschwendner. This is my husbands favorite, he likes his teas robust. For me I really liked the cocoa and malty flavors that came through. I generally do not put sugar into many of my teas, but at times I found it to enhance the malty, cocoa taste. It’s even good with a little cream.
Generally I love Irish Breakfast. It’s a great way to wake yourself up. This blend just did’nt have the kick-in-the-pants, wake up and get yourself out the door effect for me.
I did however buy a whole pound, so from time to time I blend it with whatever I have left over of my black teas. You know when you have a bit left over and not enough to make a full pot. It seems to perk it up a bit.
But on the other hand, if you are new to tea, and not sure if you like a kick-in-your-pants type of morning tea? This would be a great one to start out with.
Readed the many comments about it smelling like Fruit Loops. I did not get that the first time I smelled the tea leaves. Now through the power of suggestion everytime I smell it I think of Fruit Loops of even Fruity Pebbles. Even with that said I still like the tea. It has a refreshing taste and a great balance with the green tea. Once brewed everything seems to work. I found it to be one of my favorites in the Adagio Green Teas.
Yunnan Jig from adagio, what can I say about. Yummy comes to mine. I was very pleased with this tea. Drinking it gave me a warm comfy feeling. Cocoa came to mind when the aroma hit my nose after first opening it. Tasting it was even more of a surprise, I just wanted to come back for more. Since I only had a sample size I will have to make sure I get a larger quanity to have on hand.
