1611 Tasting Notes
This one was interesting to me. First, I love brown sugar! I have tried figs before, and I know I like them. They have a certain starchy taste to it. This tea definitely has that taste. The flavor wasn’t very strong. The black tea was a little astringent, but it wasn’t terrible. I added brown sugar to this blend. I’m sure it would taste better with milk, but I’m not sure. I will try it next time. There is a definite fig taste to this tea. Good tea overall. This isn’t a very strong tea, but the flavors linger in my mouth.
I’m studying for my boards exam, which is tomorrow! I decided to brew this up! I realized I only had a tiny bit for one last brew. Finished it up!
This tea is fruity and has calmed down in scent in comparison to when I first opened it up. I love the flavor of this now. I like how it isn’t tart, but the fruitiness is strong.
I’m a huge fan of lemongrass and vanilla and rooibos! So naturally, I liked this blend. This tea didn’t smell strong. Once it was brewed, it was a nice ruddy brown tisane! The lemongrass didn’t stand out that much, but I did notice vanilla and cream. Good tea! I might add more of my lemongrass to this mix to see if this makes more a difference. Great blend, and I’m glad I’m drinking it now. Thank you so much Rachel :)
