1767 Tasting Notes
Regarding the dry tea: the blueberries clumped together a bit and made it hard to measure what seemed to be a fair quantity of fruit vs. rooibos. However, I must have gotten the proportions right. It’s nice and smooth and fruity—not a bit of tart. Rooibos is one of those funny ingredients that only goes with certain things, but blueberries work. Great chilled.
Received this as a review sample for www.itsallabouttheleaf.com, so I’ll save lengthy comments for that
- suffice it to say this is one of the best Assams I have ever tasted. Malty, biscuity … all the good words!
(Later in the 95 degree, zillion percent humidity afternoon … GREAT cold! My husband humors me when I stick tea under his nose to drink, but reverts to commercial bottled most of the time; however, he truly liked this one. Must be the malty freshness. Or the fresh maltiness.)
This one was from Doulton (and continued thank yous for all the little surprises in your care package!).
I do like rooibos, but I am still trying to classify the flavors and additives that belong with it. Chocolate, definitely. Mint…not sure.
I think this would be better with some doctoring…maybe a bit of milk or a spritz of sugar.
