1916 Tasting Notes
Still haven’t unearthed the brand of this nice (and wonderfully inexpensive!) bulk tea from favorite local store, though I see big ol’ 25-pound bags on their shelves with characters I can’t deciper. It looks a little leafy and woody and stemmy dry, but is still a good pantry staple, especially on days when you want to be tugged awake instead of booted out the door.
Full review up at http://www.itsallabouttheleaf.com/1816/tea-review-lochan-tea-glenburn-estate-2010-first-flush-darjeeling/ So far I am wholly impressed by the quality of the Lochan samples I’ve had the opportunity to try. Good stuff.
Very nice Assam…review’s up at http://www.itsallabouttheleaf.com/1634/tea-review-teafrog-organic-assam-banaspaty-ftgfop/
Many of the chocolate-based teas I’ve experienced lose their chocolate-iness after they sit very long. Took me a while to get through my sample cup because I was trying to wax poetic over it for www.itsallabouttheleaf.com, and even after it was stone cold, it still smelled like a really good box of chocolates.
