367 Tasting Notes
Oh Iron Goddess of Mercy we thank thee for thy pale liquor. I found this at the Asian grocery for about six dollars for 10 ounces. I can honestly say that I think this tea is just as high a quality as some that you would pay 2-3 times more for. Good for three steeps no problem and not lose flavor. I’ve mixed it with Pu-Erh and a cherry rooibos and have had fantastic results. Mixed with the cherry flavor you get a taste similar to beer.
Back logging here. I got a can of this during the summer and it was the first can of tea that I cashed from Dr. Tea. This is a good everyday tea. The flavor is a little astringent but I still loved it. I couldn’t get a lot of Pu-Erh flavor out of this but I could taste the ancient tea tree. I would love to try them individually. I like it quite a bit and will likely order more.
I just brewed this before I hit the airwaves. It hit my palette and I noticed familiar flavors to me….definitely the lemongrass, and cinnamon….but what I really noticed is that it reminded me of Tazo(Starbucks) Passion tea. In addition the Pu-Erh. Quite enjoyable this time around especially after chinese for lunch. Got 2 good steepings out of it.
I decided to try this while my future wife and I were out. Overall I didn’t think it was too bad. As I sipped it more on the way home I realized how much it tasted like the Yunnan black tea that I got at the local Asian supermarket…..except there for .75 cents an ounce. It’s good but I’d rather save the four dollars an ounce for something else.
