2605 Tasting Notes
Another tea I apparently didn’t log last night. Anyways, thank you Nattie for sharing but this just wasn’t for me. I tried it both with and without milk and neither really appealed to me much. Instead, it reminded me of the plain tea my great aunt and uncle from Britain make me drink and I am just not a fan.
I made this so I could try a side-by-side comparison with the TTC Hong Yun. Ultimately I have come to the conclusion that I enjoy both Hong Yun teas. I can tell there is a difference between the two but it is so minimal that I can’t pinpoint what exactly it is. At the end of the day, the two are close enough that I would be happy with either or. Thank you Cavocorax for the chance to try both of them!
I am not entirely sure if this is the Hong Yun Cavocorax shared with me but it is the only one from Taiwan Tea Crafts that she has in her cupboard so I am going to assume it is the right one. Anyways, thank you Cavocorax for sharing. I have only tried one other Taiwan Tea Craft tea (Sun Moon Lake Assam) and I really enjoyed it so I am excited to have others to sample. This, like the last TTC tea I had, is a pretty solid cup. It has an amazing smoothness that suits the sweetness of the tea.
So when Sil gave me the sample of this tea she told me I had to have it with just a touch of maple. I don’t usually sweeten my teas though so when I poured, I didn’t know when to stop and I may have added too much. And by that, I mean I definitely added too much. This is one cup of sugar and it is just too much. This got dumped and I will try again. Thank you Sil!
