108 Tasting Notes
well, i haven’t really liked most of the Da Hong Paos i’ve ever tried, but i like this one a bit better. mind you i’m only on the first steep, and it tastes smoky and dusty and dry, just like the others i’ve tried, but this one at least has some depth to it, am looking forwarded to future steepings….
got this sample along with my last TaS order – i might have purchased it, or they might have just sent it along, i can’t remember. either way, yay tea!
well, this is a nice good solid black tea. it is, indeed, smooth. HOWEVER i am not the biggest black tea fan in the world. if i am drinking black tea, it is probably early in the morning AND doused in sugar and milk. i don’t prefer black black tea.
this tea is FANTASTIC doused in sugar and milk! but i’m not sure it will serve my purposes for morning black tea any better than the much cheaper PG Tips that i’m used to.
TaS is still a favorite tea company, and i will be ordering from there many times again, i know, but it will not be the Ceylon Pekoe, alas.
