1812 Tasting Notes
#24DaysOfTea Day 1 – The apple-cinnamon taste is pretty good, and this makes a pleasant herbal blend. I know the nut is almonds, but it reminds me of walnuts for some reason. For the first cup, I steeped it at 7 minutes. Then, in the second cup, I resteeped the same blend, plus some Sungma Classic SFTGFOP1 from Tea Time for a bit of a nutty caffeine hit. Despite the resteep, the nutty aromas are still there, and the apple-cinnamon is a good accompaniment to the light black tea.
After drinking water for most of the day, I made a cup of this, western-style. The first oddity was that I drank water for most of the day. The second oddity was that I made this western-style, steeping for four minutes instead.
It was pleasant, but not big on flavor. Perhaps I did not use enough leaf, or perhaps this would be better with a gong-fu brewing.
