519 Tasting Notes
Got this sample to try next to two other EFs. This is malty but not overly so, fairly smooth but with a bit of bitterness to the cooling cup. I added some half-and-half to the last portion of the cup and it was good but nothing exceptional.
T&C TTB#9: Well, when wet the leaves smell strongly of cinnamon, spice and orange. It tastes more like just cinnamon to me. A little orange maybe in the background. It’s okay, but I’m not really a spice tea person unless it is in a chai latte.
Cool looking leaves – very long. This is pretty good. I followed package directions, though, and this length of steep is giving it a dryness that I don’t care for a whole lot (at least I’m guessing that is what is making it dry). I don’t notice any other notes than tea flavor tea. :) I have enough left in the sample to try again though!
