1612 Tasting Notes
I saw this in my sample box today. This is also from the Tea Box Pass B! The black tea leaves look very nice. They are medium length and slightly wavy dark brown leaves. Crunchy looking! Steeped, it was a dark brown color. I love the way it smells like muscat … err grapes! It does have the nice wine flavor. This one is more like a dry wine. It isn’t overpowering or artificial tasting. It is just right. There is a moderate amount of astringency at the end of the sip, and it increases as I keep sipping. It doesn’t need any additives either. Towards the end, I decided to try this with a little bit of sugar. I felt like it took away from the flavor more than added to it. Good tea! I miss wine so much, so I am happy to have stumbled upon this tea!
