14 Tasting Notes
Wow! Really, really enjoyed this tea. I’m a sucker for citrus, especially grapefruit but I am amazed at how delicate and smooth this tea is. I received this as a free sample (many thanks to Nina’s) and I plan to order more in the near future. 2nd steep was as solid as the first.
Just tried this tea while looking out the window at winter storm Nemo here in New York… I do like mint teas, but what really makes this tea good is the complimenting spicy ingredients. It almost has a chai kinda feel to it and I like that. I’m not sure this will be a “staple” tea for me, but I’m glad I have 50g of it. ;)
I thought I would absolutely love this tea. While it was good, it didn’t quite meet my high expectations. The smell of the dry tea is dominated by chocolate, which has a bit of an artificial aroma. Not too displeasing, but not perfect either.
I was also a bit disappointed that the tea wasn’t a bit spicier. The combination of chili and chai makes me think there will be a bit of heat, but it was quite subtle. The tea improves as it cools a bit IMHO, but I’m not sure I’ll be ordering it again.
Good, not great…
