179 Tasting Notes
Ok, I could definitely sense what they were going for here, but when you need to steep a black tea for 2-3mins and they recommend steeping Indian Spice for 5-7mins that’s not really gonna add up. I put a scoop of this with my Art of Tea lemon myrtle black and it got too astringent around 5mins. One sample scoop left to play with. A green next time?
Sipdown #9: getting rid of that last sample teabag I stole from a hotel’s tea stash a year ago.
Drinking this makes me feel ill. But not in a bad way. Just because for so many years this tea was my go-to whenever I had a cold virus! These days I’m more likely to reach for a more complex blend by a local tea company, but T2’s lemongrass & ginger will always hold a special place in my nostalgic heart. Still tasty and soothing with a dollop of honey, refreshing without.
Sipdown #8 for 2014. I didn’t dislike this as much as I expected to—the first mouthful was heinously licorice-laden but the awful sweetness mellowed out after that first mouthful. I wanted to drink something energising due to not having any morning coffee around and while I’m not going to restock, I’m glad I got to try this sample.
