916 Tasting Notes
Thank you Starfevre for this sample sachet! I really appreciate it :D
WOW this is a really good black tea! Super malty and rich. I totally dig the farmer direct/ fair trade model, too. Looking at the prices on their website, this is a very affordable tea, as well! So basically it is a win/win/win!!
I’m actually having some straight matcha, prepared the traditional way, for once!
It is intensely vegetal, and a little bitter, though it might be my fault. It is probably getting pretty old, and I may have scorched it with too hot water.
Oh well, hurrying to sip up this cup so I can make some of my new Mandala teas that just came in the mail!!!!! What do I try first?? :)
I bought some of this from my local Target during the worst days of my cold earlier in the week. My favorite sick time beverage is freshly grated ginger root, boiled and strained, combined with some lemon juice and honey. I thought this would be a nice EASIER alternative for when I’m out of or too lazy to grate fresh ginger. The flavor is not quite as nice as fresh, but this sure works in a pinch! Ginger is SO soothing for sore throats!
