1789 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.)
