791 Tasting Notes
This is a good cup of assam! I was interested after the sales person at the Raleigh shop said it was her favorite assam, and it was really toasty. And it is! It was perfect with the oatmeal I had for breakfast, and has enough of a kick that it’s a great way to start the day.
It’s a strong cup, with some astringency (though not too much tannin). Recommend!
Dark and toasty, it feels a bit concentrated, but still quite good even with that feeling. I thought it was a bit dense, but like Cinoi, in the end I found it was the can. It’s a good quick fix for an Oolong tea. I especially liked it really cold.
I’m not sure if this is what I had or not today, but this is the actual tea: http://tinroofteas.com/green-aroma-teas/984-kombucha-plum/
That tea shop used to only sell Tea Gschwender tea, but now they’re doing some other ones, too, and Wiseman is an option, I guess.
Anyway, it was really good. I don’t typically drink Kombucha, so I’m not certain what it’s role was in the tea, but the balance of plum to tea was quite nice. The tea had a bit of a kick, too. I picked up three other teas, so looking forward to trying them!
My sister had this in the house, so I had a cup. I wasn’t sure what to expect, I’m very particular about mint in my tea, but it was a pretty good cup. We left on an errand (to a tea shop!) and came home and it was colder, so I microwaved it and it was still pretty good.
