328 Tasting Notes
Had this one yesetrday AM. A nice, delightful, and light tea for the summer months. Sort of bittersweet havinng this one since The Simple Leaf has recently closed.
This is a nice,pleasant, and mild tisane. Subtle lemon flavor. Perfect for those who do not like Chamomile as it is very relaxing. Although this is loaded with medicinal herbs only the lemon taste comes thru. But the best part this really does make me sleepy…..
Smoky but not too smoky. Subtle sweetness and a great way to start the day.
This one is not as good as Adagio’s Golden Monkey. It is smooth. Sort of cocoa like. But does not have the caramel tones I come to to expect from Golden Monkey. But maybe this from a different region in China?
This tea has a wonderful and light toasty flavor!
I was disappointed in this tea. It was touted by Upton as some fancy high end tea w a price of $20 bucks for 10 g. I was hoping this would have cocoa notes as Upton mentioned instead it is a Lapsang Souchong lite w/mild smoky overtones. Glad that I just bought the 5 dollar sample.
Had this again with fresh mint, iced, and sugar. This bold ass am holds up so well w/the fresh mint..
Finally got this one right. Used 1 tbs for 16 ozs. 3mins steep at under boiling at 200f. Tasted a delightful toasty flavor as my first 3 times for this tea was blah. Can’t wait to try this one again…
Perfect chamomile blend. The lively flavors of mint and lemongrass are a perfect foil to the mellow chamomile….
