865 Tasting Notes
Going through my tea collection today. Hopefully I can get through most of it. I want to clear out stuff I don’t love and maybe put it up for swap. This one is ok. It’s not one that really pops to me. I’m getting cinnamon and a touch of banana and the black base. It’s enjoyable but it might be time to pass this one on to someone else to enjoy.
The aroma of this tea is strong in cumin. It’s very savory, too. Almost like a baked sweet potato with spices and herbs. It’s definitely a different cup of tea. I can taste cumin, fennel, and anise. The flavor is kind of like the smell with the sweet potato thing. The base is present with a sweet smokiness. I just can’t decide if I like this tea or not..
I love golden monkey tea so I thought I’d like this one too. I do! It has that warm, malty, hints of chocolate, and spice thing going on. It has a sweetness to it that might be the champagne flavor but I feel it gets a bit lost in the base (not complaining). It’s smooth and makes a really relaxing cup. I really liked this blend :) And the tea fortune was an awesome idea! I got: “This year you will teach someone not to use the microwave for making bagged tea.” (or something like that,,,) YES! CHALLANGE ACCEPTED. I hate when people do that.
Finished this one off today! I’m happy I had a cup of tea by me today. I run my own etsy shop and a lady has been messaging me about a custom order. Turns out she’s just trying to figure out how I make it so she doesn’t have to actually buy it >:( That makes me grumpy because I make my own recipes for my own products and work really hard at it too :(
Anyways.. this tea is enjoyable. It has a sweet flavor that reminds me of peaches or apricots. There is a nice floral note and a touch of melon. Mmm :3
