1108 Tasting Notes
Got this in the mail yesterday and drank it. Sorry I didn’t take detailed notes at the time, but since I have a full tin I am sure I will write a more detailed note in the future!
Anyway, for now though, it was really delicious and malty. Very smooth, and not as bold as some of the other Damn Fine teas. If you are a fan of Andrews and Dunham I am sure you will enjoy this one!
Revisiting this one for a nice afternoon pick-me-up. Long steep time but did not get bitter. Slightly astringent but pleasantly so. Raisin notes very apparent this afternoon.
Kind of celebrating because I just let myself order the Damn Fine Holiday blend 2014! Naughty though- I should not spend money on myself this close to Christmas! I did order a 2nd tin to give as a gift to a non-Steepster tea friend though :)
I’m a big fan of rice shou, so I stocked up on this during TeaVivre’s black Friday sale without even tasting it first. Luckily it is a good one! And SO convenient. The sachets are individually wrapped!!! I’m normally not a big fan of sachets or wasted packaging in general but these are going to be SO convenient for travel. Seriously. Awesome.
