1569 Tasting Notes

drank assam gingia by Culinary Teas
1569 tasting notes

I opened this package today! It smelled so good dry! Malt and cocoa are two things I love in life. The leaves were twisted and dark brown. Since I haven’t been brewing teas for long periods of time, the liquor was a bit scent-less to me. When I drank it, it tasted like good Assam. I detected maltiness, slight fruity notes, and some cocoa notes as well. It was still strong, so I added sugar and skim milk to it. Delicious and easier to drink with the additives, which I usually like to use when I’m drinking assam teas. I imagine that this would be a good base for blending teas or making chai.

This tea blend is okay. I like the banana notes, but they seem a little artificial with alcoholic type scent… like an banana-scented ester that I made in high school chemistry class! I noticed the chocolate, which helped the banana a little bit, but not enough IMO. This is good with a little milk to subdue the banana notes. Otherwise, I don’t think I will be purchasing this beverage in the future; however, it is a good beverage for bedtime just because its rooibos.

I keep telling myself I am going to make this over the stove-top, but I haven’t been able to! I have been so busy with work. Anyway, I had this before going to work yesterday. :) Delicious! I love the ginger bits in here.

drank Vanilla Chai by English Tea Store

So these English Tea Store chai blends are not as strong as I hope they would be, but it is good anyway! I have been brewing it Western style, so maybe thats the problem. I will use the rest of my samples for the stove. This is a decent cuppa tea to accompany breakfast. The vanilla flavor is very light, but this blend is nice and creamy.

I wanted a hot chocolate flavor, so I went into my sample basket and reached for this one. This was a tea in the Tea Box Pass! Delicious! I couldn’t taste the chocolate as much and the spices were a little muted. But I could detect the chai flavors.
