From Malt-Tea.com

Crystal malts are high-nitrogen malts that are wetted and roasted in a rotating drum before kilning. They produce strongly sweet toffee-like flavors. Crystal malts are available in a range of colors, with darker-colored crystal malts; that is, those kilned at higher temperatures, producing stronger, more caramel-like overtones. Those kilned at lower temperatures are slightly sweeter with more tamed caramel notes. The Crystal ranges are 20,40,60,90 and 120. These numbers represent their lovibond (L) scale. The lower numbers are lighter/sweeter and the higher numbers are darker/more carmelized. As Crystal 60 is in the middle, it brings a perfect balance of sweetness and carmelization.

My second to last sample from Malt! This is a lighter version of the 120 Malt, which I totally adored. Apparently these ones are given a bit of a lighter treatment, and as such have a less potent malty flavor. This is definitely true—it brews up lighter in color, and looks more like honey than molasses. Tastes like it, too, there’s a really strong honey taste here! Also notes of hay and corn, it reminds me a bit of a pu-erh.

There’s still quite a bit of malty goodness, it’s not as rich and savory as the 120 but still very present. If the 120 was a dark chocolate malted ball, this is a milk chocolate one—sweeter, lighter, with less depth of flavor but not in a bad way. The 120 was kind of a kick in the tastebuds, this is a bit… easier to drink? If that makes sense. With the 120 I found myself intrigued with every sip, while the 60 goes down smooth and easy. I do enjoy the molasses-y, complex notes of the stronger malt but this one is also so delicious!

mmmmm Malty!

Malt teas are weird. I have them in a little tin and drag it out for others to smell on occasion. Some people think it smells amazing ovaltine malt yummyness, others think the malt tea smell is totally gross.

This malt is light, like a sweet corny honey taste, with strong smells of malty. The malt tea gets sweeter end of sip. It’s pretty interesting!

I’ve had these samples for awhile, but taking awhile to drink them – I need to be in the right mood for something completely different. Overall, very interesting and if you want something neat, give these malt teas a try.
I have evil ideas to maybe splice these with some chocolatey tea for extra maltyness!

I had my tea hating husband take a sip and he thought it tasted weird and like jerky. I dunno.
