1108 Tasting Notes
I had to try this one. Forgive me for forgetting which box it came from!
I love Japanese greens but I’ve never had a Japanese black! I was unsure on steeping temp so I went a little lower than I would for another unknown black, just to be safe.
Not sure if I underleafed or if this one is suffering from its age? I feel like there is a lot of potential here and I would really love it if it was just a tad stronger tasting. It is a mild, somewhat nutty definitely black tasting tea, with some vegetal/mineral/sea elements that I enjoy in my Japanese greens. This is definitely something I would like to explore further. Bring on the Japanese blacks!!
Thank you Marzipan for the sample!
Hmm, I’m not sure about this one. The chocolate notes are not strong. It isn’t spicy either but there is another flavor floating around that MIGHT be something peppery. But honestly? This reminds me of flavored pipe tobacco! WEIRD!
Anyway, Della Terra’s offerings are hit or miss with me. I’ve only had a couple of them I’ve really loved. Always fun to try new teas though :)
