1011 Tasting Notes
I’m finishing up my sample of this courtesy of TeaEqualsBliss! Sorry it took so long for me to review. This is a really different black tea and I have really enjoyed it. The tea is smooth with a really nice, juicy apricot flavor. This is great both with and without additions, but I really enjoy it as a tea latte. Thanks again for this sample!
I haven’t had this tea in about 3 months. It just hasn’t been anything that called my name and it seemed to have a soapy type aftertaste that just wasn’t appetizing when drank hot. However, tonight this tea WAS calling my name – so I gave in, not expecting much. I think time has mellowed this out quite a bit. All I taste now is a nice tea base with lots and lots of juicy fruit flavors. No soapy aftertaste! Maybe this tea just needed to blend a bit more together…. I think a second pot is in order! (And a slight ratings increase!)
When my husband brought this home for me a few months ago, I was completely skeptical. Sometimes I wonder if he’ll ever understand that I like tea, but not every bagged tea is worth bringing home. Luckily, he did a pretty good job getting this one. It is surprisingly light, not bitter, and tasty. The addition of stevia, which I’m usually not a fan of, really helps this tea to be just right without anything else. I didn’t think I would drink it often, but I realized tonight that I’m down to only one more bag. I may just have to restock this – I love easy options after a long day dealing with 6 year-olds.
