1392 Tasting Notes
Thank you Nina’s Tea for this sample!! I’m quite enjoying this cup. The vanilla is very mild, and pairs excellently with the caramel. Light, like cloudbursts. The black base is nice as well, bringing everything together to make a very well rounded tea. No sugar or milk added.
Oh!! When piping hot, I swear there was something fruity in there!
I definitely wouldn’t mind having this in my cupboard.
Second cup out of this sample, and again I could not finish my cup. Is it just me? this tasted nothing like mango, but more like… sour juice? the black base didn’t even make an appearance, except for some strange astringent note that mixed badly with the oddly sweet/sour part that I think was the mango.
I think I prefer this without milk??! an assam without milk, it just feels so wrong!
It’s crisp and fresh, floral and just a little malty. With all those letters attached, it’s no wonder why :)
A la dairy, it’s a little smoky, and I’m not sure I like that.
The kind gent from Capital Teas gifted this to me and I plan to cherish every spoonful. Though I need to indulge a few more cups before deciding on a rating.
Whaaaaaat, I still have some of this left over?! I thought it was sipped down ages ago. So I made a cup for Dad and I. Not bad, after all this time! Helps that I actually had it in a tin. Significantly less orange flavour, but the chocolate is still there, yay! :)
I needed the pick me up. I’m a little depressed tonight because I can’t make it out to my floor hockey game due to a professional committment, and I’ve been looking forward to it since last Tues. Le sad :(
Thanks Sil and Kittenna for this sample!! I really enjoyed the cup. Seriously.
A little bit of caramel, but mostly orange. Like marmalade. Very rindy and sweet, sans sugar!
I’ve had an orange kind of day. We made a cake for Mums bday… and she loves marmalade so it was an eggless, orange infused cake with marmalade/vodka glaze. Looks purty but we haven’t tried it yet. Fingers crossed that I didn’t mess it up!!
Anyhow, I am seriously considering getting more of this one :D
