I thought I’d do this one while drinking it, as long as I was online. It’s another sample I got from John. Woohoo!

The first taste was…interesting. It wasn’t what I expected, though I wasn’t completely sure what to expect. It was strong and in-your-face. I slowed down, taking little sips at a time (like wine). I can definitely taste the tea, a bit of grape flavor, and the wine flavor. Kind of green (leafy/vegetal) and sweet, but definitely not too sweet. The aftertaste is definitely sweet and grape-y/wine-y. Very interesting. Complex. I’ll have to try another cup or 2 before I decide whether or not to add this to my shopping list. licks lips

Bio

Born in Honolulu and have since moved to the mainland. Former dance student and permanent music junkie. First interest in tea was in an instant chai (yes, instant chai) when I was in middle school. Moved from masala chai to green and white teas, back to masala chai, and then to the small combination of teas I currently love. I am not a purist. My teabags and loose tea sit in harmony…until I use them!
