791 Tasting Notes
Stronger than I expected, and a robust breakfast tea. After this one, I’m going to need something green or decaf.
If you’re into peppermint, this is a really good cup of tea. The peppermint is some of the better I’ve tasted, and was something I could imagine drinking late into the evening.
I expected more of a green tea and less of a spearmint one, but even so it was a good cup.
I think of this as a tea that I’ll drink if I want something with nocaf, if it’s around. But forever going forward I will think of it as THE TEA THAT HOOKED MY CHILD ON TEA! Over the weekend he saw me drinking tea as always, and asked for a sip. I let him have the tiniest amount and he said he really liked it. So I asked if he wanted his own cup and made this instead. With half a teaspoon of sugar (so much less than comes in juice or the almond milk he normally drinks), he kept saying “I LOVE tea!” and asking for more as soon as it was out. So now, there are two tea drinkers in my house. Me and my three year old. :)
Excellent cup. I don’t always like white teas, but this one is just the right mix of floral, and somehow fruity, that it’s the perfect afternoon cup.
This is one of those that stands out to me as special, so I don’t have it that much. Today I decided to go for it, and am having several cups. What a nice start to the day.
Having a cup this morning, and since I anticipated the smokiness, it’s far less overwhelming. Also goes well with Biscoff cookies!
This morning I set about making teas and I realized the Steven Smith Teamaker sampler I got was not a sampler with four teabags of three teas, but rather 12 different ones! I gave this one a go, since I really love darjeeling, and it was a good cup. It had a thick feel to it, and was clearly a darjeeling, but as others noted: it’s solid but not a showstopper. Decent cup.
Lovely cup of tea! Excellent hot and also iced.
