987 Tasting Notes
I am glad to have this back in my cupboard. It is so unique and different!
I am still unsure how to describe the taste though. I have never had sea buckthorn. It is bitter and sweet at the same time if that makes sense. It reminds me a little bit of chokecherry or Saskatoon berries maybe. It has a nice creamy aftertaste.
I love this tea with a smidgen of brown crystal sugar. It really brings out the plum flavour. The cheesecake and brandy have lost most of their spunk, but are still there in the background. I am actually going to increase this rating a little (from 92) because this is probably my all time favourite plum tea.
This is one of the free samples that I chose with my Black Friday order so that you Teavivre! I really enjoy Keemun teas, and this one is no exception. The snails are so pretty, dark and all curled up. I like watching them unfurl in my Steeper. The brewed tea is fairly dark.
The aroma is of baked sweet potatoes and it also translates into the taste as well. The mouthfeel is smooth with a slightly sweet aftertaste.
This tea is fairly expensive and there are other Teavivre Keemuns that I enjoy more than this offering, so it won’t become part of my permanent cupboard but I am happy to have tried it and certainly would not refuse a cuppa.
