1314 Tasting Notes
Big thanks to SIL for the sample!! I quite like this.
Can definitely taste the darjeeling in there, with a good dose of pleasant astringency. Usually I dislike that sour not but somehow it really works here. It balances out well with the malty Assam. Mmmmmm. This is really good!
My only concern is that it’s a touch too light for my liking.
almost sipdown!!! I have only a tiny bit left. Which was unexpected because I am at a friend’s house where I was just gifted a teapot and infuser… I HAVE A NEW TEAPOT :D
Anyhow, this is the one I chose to christen the pot with. And oh man is it ever tasty. Too bad I haven’t got enough for another pot after this!
So much love for my good friends J and T xxo
Much improved, much improved. Seriously. Milk and honey. Fixes everything. Bonnie! you know how to fix a funny chai lol. Thanks for the tip!
Sil have you tried it that way?! It’s quite good!
Very mild in the spices, but widespread and complex. On the swallow, I can taste chocolate whereas without dairy, all I get is fake sweetness. Yup, I quite like it this way. Not sure if I’m inspired to place an order, as I’d like to try out some other Verdant teas first. Also, it is somewhat limiting as I’d like to be able to enjoy it plain as well. That factor alone lowers my rating a few points.
Update: Now that I’ve finished the cup, there is a cooling sensation almost like menthol. Interesting!
