40 Tasting Notes
Stash sipdown#1- I was really apprehensive to try this tea last year, all I could picture was potentially getting a big mouthful of salt. I love that I was oh so wrong about this tea. Its amazing. The smell when its steeping reminds me of Werthers original candies. It tastes like a regular black tea with light caramel notes, and just a hint of sweetness. I love that there isn’t any aftertaste. Personally, I wouldn’t consider it a dessert tea because it isn’t very sweet, but its a wonderful after dinner tea while I’m browsing Steepster or reading a good book in the bath.
I was excited for this tea because it smelled like maple when dry, albeit slightly artificial. Unfortunately, the taste was very medicinal and reminded me of paint thinner. Maybe I just got a bad bag, because I enjoy a lot of Mlesna’s other teas. I may give this another chance in the future just to see.
