First cup of the day! It’s a little sweet and a little bitter. The sweet and bitter seem to even each other out a little. It has a woodsy-cologne type after taste/thought…
not too shabby.
This was sent to me by TeaEqualsBliss – thanks!
I am not as crazy about this as I thought I would be. There is just something a little off with it. Like a funky, artificial sweetness to it. It’s OK, but not my favorite I’ve tried from McNulty’s.
So, a friend of mine gave me several teas and herbal infusions from McNulty’s shop in NYC. Honestly, none of those that I have tried are stellar or outstanding. But they aren’t bad either!
This one, Golden Nepal, is a pretty solid black tea that is very similar to a strong blended black tea from India or Sri Lanka (Assam, and Ceylon blends come to mind). Compared to McNulty’s own “Golden Assam”, the leaves are much less uniform in the Nepal. The flavor seems to follow suit. There is a slight, but noticeable astringency that makes this a nice breakfast tea. Nothing fancy, but nothing I wouldn’t drink!
