Another from the Xmas TeaFountain sampler pack. TeaFountain’s description says “malty & sweet”; I’m not sure about the sweet part, but malty…oh yeah! In fact, that is the dominate taste to exclusion of a lot of anything else. To sum it up, Bold, Malty, not overly complex…a good tea for savory foods like the salty, thick-cut bacon I’m munching on.
doing this one as an Iced Tea this afternoon. Brewed it strong and poured over ice while hot. Wow, strong stuff, needs more ice. Ok, back again. Diluted it 50/50 with cold filtered water…that brought it down to the realm of drinkable. Incidently, my filtered water source comes out under pressure in a thin stream…it put a head on my tea! Not sure thats a good thing? Few minutes later, half a glass down and I’m thinking this isn’t such a good thing. Too strong? not sure, but I’m moving to something else.
resteep. pretty weak and the malty flavors have gone flat. Not wasting my time with it.
