5 Tasting Notes
This is a great comfort tea! Reminded me of a mild/light minty hot chocolate, perfect for the cooler weather that’s coming in with the beginning of autumn. I take it with milk and a tiny bit of cane sugar (but it’s great without either, too). I plan to experiment in baking with this, I think it would be nice in cookies.
Too strong my tastes to drink as a cup. “Smokey punch to the throat” as another reviewer described about sums it up for me. Smells like a campfire – which is nice, but not to drink. However, I do use it in cooking, so it gains some points for that. Makes a nice marinade for salmon.
The tea that turned me on to green tea! I’d smelled it many times while I worked at Teaopia, and it smelled so lovely that I decided to give it a try. Great when I feel like something less strong than all the black tea I drink. The flavouring is subtle, but not weak. A nice calming tea. I’ve also brewed some up and then used it instead of water to cook rice when I’ve made Asian-style meals and again it’s subtle but gives a little extra something.
