181 Tasting Notes
A bolder, more flavorful version than Goldfish’s standard Yunnan Gold. This was a really interesting black tea that tasted closer to a pu-erh.
I’m starting to get more into ti quan yin’s. This was left over from my trip to the World Tea Expo. Tasty stuff, even though it was brewed from a pyramid pouch using waiting-room-coffee-machine hot water.
Best store-bought chai I’ve had so far. Single cup. Nice balance of flavors.
Had this at Goldfish Tea in Royal Oak, MI. Very smooth, served in a clay mug. One of the more memorable Tie Guan Yins I’ve had.
I need to find a better to-go tea. One that doesn’t have almonds.
Golden Monkey isn’t quite as robust as my typical morning teas, but it makes up for it with its caramel character and mildly sweet finish. It also extends into well into the afternoon, meaning that I often end up drinking it until it’s time for dinner. I can usually get three steeps out of the leaves, though I use a little more than recommended on the package. Delicious.
Was off Earl Grey for a while, but today it was just right!
