304 Tasting Notes
Found 100 grams of this tea today and just could not resist the cute little tin. I thought to myself…get this and try to mix it with something creamy…so here goes!
In an attempt to create my own EG cream, I added one tsp of EG and I tsp of chocolate honeybush to my teapot. 3 minute infusion yields a creamy EG at a fraction of the cost.
The smell from the teapot is of chocolate with a nice backdrop of EG goodness…yum
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!
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.
