210 Tasting Notes

When I tried a sample of this in the store I really liked it. Enough to bring home a tin of it. I couldn’t get it right at home. I always found it too tart, which I really don’t like in teas. After several brewing attempts, I had no luck, and tried it cold brewed. Still no luck – but my fault as I brewed too long and it became bitter as well. I was able to finally finish the tin, but will probably not buy again. This was just too tart for my liking.

I had this one as a hot brew a while ago, and I didn’t like it very much-too sour (hibiscus, I guess). But then warm weather finally came, so I decided to try a cold brew. Much Better!! Especially with a little bit of honey added.

I keep opening my tin and smelling the tea. I usually only do this with flavoured tea’s. This one smells ridiculously fresh. I wish I had bought more-this is gonna be done in a couple of days. I have to get more. Not only is the smell fresh, but the taste is also really fresh. The honey tones are evident, but I really appreciate those fresh notes in this tea.

This is good. Really good. Makes a smooth, bold cuppa. I usually don’t drink black tea’s without adding a splash of milk, but this one I like without adding anything.

This tea, for me, was ok. I really enjoyed the aroma and taste of the toasted rice, but I got this after taste that I did not like, something along the lines of seaweed, algae, marine water….I had to play around with the amount of tea leaves vs water, and I found that less leaves and more water seemed to suit my palate.

It’s been a while since I’ve touched this tea. I forgot how good this tastes. A bold, bright flavour with just a slight touch of bitterness. A great cup to start the day.

I don’t love this tea, but I don’t hate it. It’s just ok. Nothing stands out about this tea. It’s mild and slightly vegetal. I won’t be hurting to finish my stash, but I probably wouldn’t order it again.

I. Love. This. Tea.

I love the smoky flavour of this tea. The smokiness is not overwhelming, just enough to evoke awesome memories of the great outdoors and white water rafting.

Bio

My tea journey started in 2012, when a friend gifted me some loose leaf. I guess she thought I was drinking too much coffee. Blown away by the amazing flavours I immediately embraced the loose leaf tea. I still drink coffee, but my main choice of beverage is now tea.

My tea preferences are blacks, pu’erhs, oolongs and greens.
