185 tasting notes

Hrmm… not sure what’s going on with this right here. This is supposed to be a fairly typical chai… but it’s… not.

The concept of a savory tea is a little bit confusing to me. I’ve seen references to Frank’s tomato and basil tea, and it turned me a little green. This? Well, it’s also turning me a little green.

The two most predominant flavors I’m getting from this are pepper and… pine? I don’t know what to say, but it tastes like pine. I really have no idea why. It is truly bizarre.

This might be a case of ‘we need to try this again before we make any decisions’. I’m really not sure how it came out tasting the way it does… but at the moment, not too terribly impressed. Maybe I’m just having an off chai day ;)

Bio

My fiancé and I are beginning to enjoy tea infusion, and it’s slowly becoming an interesting hobby that the two of us can share. Maybe not slowly… it’s somewhat amazing how much tea you can buy when everything looks shiny and new.

Tea Rating system:

90 – 100: This is a tea I will always have on hand at work, and at home. I will leave it on altars as offerings of perfection.

80 – 89: This, or one of it’s close cousins, will likely be in my cabinet at home. When this tea runs out, I will buy more. I’ll always wonder if there is something better, but be too afraid to look to stray from home to find it.

70 – 79: Definitely good, but not a clear winner. I enjoy it, I’ll finish it, but I probably won’t buy it again until I’ve exhausted all other versions of this product from any reputable retailer. Though, it may enjoy a resurrection for custom blending.

60 – 69: This tea is okay, but definitely not something I’m going to brew again. I’m going to give what I have left away.

30 – 59: I didn’t finish drinking this tea. I actually poured it out, and went for something else. I’ll still give this tea away, but I’ll do it with a warning and a plead for forgiveness.

0 – 29: This tea is riding securely towards an iceberg at the helm of the failboat. I’ve taken this out of my tea tin, and laid it on a napkin as potpurri. I do not consider it fit for human consumption.
