1927 Tasting Notes

Treat from thoughtful husband. I’m always pleased to see our little locally-owned Fox Farm store add new tea brands. This one is really a little pricey for our current budget—$7.99 for only 15 sachets—but it tucks and travels well.

Both dry and steeped, this smells like good brown toast. Flavor is coming up a little more lightly toasted, but as usual, I was in a hurry (MUSTHAVETEAEYES—WON’T—OPEN) so it easily could have gone 5 minutes instead of the recommended 4.

Good with no additives and pleasant to drink while I’m watching activity on the morning squirrel freeway. (Shabby House’s big, luscious oak tree that shades the front porch.)

Tried a Mason jar of sun tea with this … maybe just a little rosier than I prefer due to the extended steep time. But sweet and cold and good. Not perfume-y floral.

Just getting acquainted with this one—for some reason, I associate Keemuns with cooler weather, and there hasn’t been much of that lately. Jackee was worth the wait. Didn’t use a timer and I think I may have been a little impatient, but even so I’m getting that nice burnt sugar sweetness that I wouldn’t normally expect. Excellent.

Chamomile generally tastes like … well, chamomile. It takes over whatever blend it’s in. In this case, it steps aside a bit for the other ingredients. I haven’t tasted enough teas with linden and hyssop to recognize the flavors well, but I am getting a nice almost citrusy taste with each swallow. Really, really nice.

Lots of jasmine, not much green. I wish I knew why I don’t really like jasmine, it smells so nice. Must be because it tends to be kind of pushy and crowd out whatever else is in the tea blend. Definitely the case here.

Sweet and creamy enough, it feels like candy for breakfast. A little bribe to get a Monday started…

This is another one that does better as a sun tea or a cold brew, which seems to be taming the tart in the hibiscus. Chilling it highlights the cherry-berry flavor instead.

I am the most inconsistent person on the planet, so it’s nice to land on a tea that is consistently and predictably good. This is! You do, however, have to pay attention to time and temp to keep the butterscotch thing from turning into bitter-scotch…so I’m saving it for weekend treats when I have a little more time to take care.

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
