328 Tasting Notes
I have lots of mint around my yard and some of it is looking stringy. My husband is begging me to get rid of it soo, mint iced tea is in order…. So, after experimenting, mountain malt turns out to be an excellent pair for the mint. The mountain malt, a bold and strong assam, is a perfect counter-point to the medicinal flavor of the fresh mint.
Backlogging from my trip. This one was another winner in the iced tea category for me. The coconut flavor is pronounced, sharp, and not artifical tasting at all; this tea’s flavor is reminiscent of those unsweetended coconut water drinks sold at Whole Foods. I would have to say this is my favorite Golden Moon tea by far.
Had this one again this morning without milk. Such a smooth drink. I agree with the other reviewer that this one has cocoa undertones. So, to compare to Dawn, this one has less cocoa but it is more full-bodied for a first cup in the morning. For the summer, a brisk assam is too strong, soo, this is becoming my “go-to” breakfast tea.
