3 Tasting Notes

Very easy to oversteep. I either oversteep and end up with a bitter aftertaste or under-steep and have a weak tea. I’ve had it several times, sometimes carefully checking water temperature and sometimes not, and can’t get it exactly right. Not bad, but I’ll stick to the more reliable teas in my cupboard.

Powerful vanilla scent before and after brewing, but the vanilla doesn’t come through as much in tasting. It’s possible that my water wasn’t hot enough, or I should have steeped a minute or two longer to really bring out the flavors. Still enjoyable, but could have been more flavorful.

Smooth, with caramel finish. Delicious with a teaspoon of sugar and a splash of soy milk.
