9 Tasting Notes
I’m digging this tea, though it is kind of…odd. Somewhere between an Oolong and a Lapsang Souchon. It has a sweet smell and also hints of old library books. Brews up to a lovely caramel color, with a slightly vegetal (though not too much for me, and I hate vegetal greens for example) but mostly malty and smoky taste and a toasty finish.
I bet it would be amazing with milk + vanilla sugar. I might try baking with it, too.
I think it’s all been said. I’ve switched to this from hot chocolate, since hey…zero calories.
A lovely cocoa flavor with a real chocolate aftertaste. Tastes like chocolate not like the Swiss Miss sugary stuff some may be used to.
Goes great with a splash of rice or soy milk and a squirt of simple syrup, or even plain.
I’m really loving this tea, and it’s fast becoming one of my favorite after-dinner brews. It’s pretty much as described, kind of like a more tart creamsicle with a bit of the depth of white tea.
Do be careful though, it is sensitive to overbrewing, where the overbrewed tea leaves clash nastily with the grapefruit and gets extra bitter.
It should be amazing on ice, though I haven’t tried it yet.
