Tea #29 from Another Traveling Tea Box
This is another TeaGschwendner tea that has been relabeled and sold by Tin Roof Teas so I’m going to put the tasting note here.
The dry leaf of this tea smells amazing, it’s a great blend of almond and cinnamon. It really reminds me of christmas… and cookies… and pastries. I can’t wait for the holiday baking season to get here. The tea itself let me down because I didn’t care for the blend of green teas used as the base. There was also a bitterness to it when I drank it that only got more noticeable when it cooled, at room temperature the tea was undrinkable. I think it may be from the orange blossom because now that my tea has completely cooled I’m getting a bit of a perfumey note with every sip. I think this could really be a great tea, if it were tweaked a little bit.
I’m going to fix myself another cup and play with the temperature a bit, perhaps the bitterness will go away some with a lower temp. I really don’t want to give up on this tea yet because it smells so good. I’ll add a numerical rating after my next cup.
