I’m not sure if this is the same “Tao of Tea” as I noticed there were two in the library…
Either way, I only have a sample of this, and I think it will stay that way! The Lapsang I tried at Teaopia remains my favourite.
This one, it was good, for the most part. I think. I’d have to play around with it before declaring it unworthy, and only in comparison. I did quite enjoy the flavour, which is the main point of a tea in my books, thus giving this one it’s relatively high rating despite all my moaning about it.
But there is something missing. The other ones I’ve tried have a depth and smoother base.
Also, I used this as a marinade for my roast pork. Not being a fan of roast anything, it was just ok… (stringy meat? no thanks!) but my parents love it so that’s what we had in the house *sighs
Next time, I’ll make it into a gravy.
