300 Tasting Notes
With my new brewing perimeters in place, I had another wonderful cup of tea this morning:) Life is good.
After months of consuming this tea, I hit the ratio of sugar & milk to tea spot on this morning:) (I owe this triumph to the you tube video I watched on making british tea…ah, the power of the internet)
Recording it here for my failing memory!
1 pyramid teabag brewed in my 2 cup Chatsford teapot
3 tsp of milk per cup
1/2 packet of Sugar in the Raw per cup
Delicious, An honest cup of tea!
I ordered the last one tonight:) “Grinning” wildly!!!!
OMG, I can’t wait to get this tea.
Still my favorite tea by a country mile:)
Smooth, not bitter and it pairs nicely with chocolate.
The balance of tea to bergamont is spot on. Holds up very well to milk and sugar. Would make a nice breakfast tea. I don’t normally think of EG for breakfast, but this one is bolder and would pair nicely with a hearty breakfast.
Kiwi Lime Ginger is what I chose to try first. Dry=I can smell fruit and ginger. The ginger is very prominent in the blend. Once the hot water hit the brew basket, I could smell the rooibos:( I am sad to say the rooibos and the ginger overpower this blend to the point that I cannot finish my sample:(
I hope the other samples are better than this one.
The strawberry in this blend is like eating fresh ripe strawberries from the vine.
I wanted ice cream. I don’t need ice cream. So, I brewed up a cup of this tea. It always amazes me how hot tea tastes just like Neopolitan ice cream. BUT it does!!! The chocolate is delicate and the chocolate fix I have been needing this week. The vanilla is smooth. The strawberry is berryish. I just love this honeybush blend:)
I have not had this in a while and you know what? It was absolutely delicious today. Spicy and bold in a good kind of way. My morning cuppa…ahhhh….
Nice underlying spicyness against the black tea with subtle peach notes. To get the ginger spice you must steep for 4 minutes:)
