888 Tasting Notes
This cuppa this morning was pure malty caramel…mmmmmm
I am not sure what will replace this tea in my cupboard. It has been a staple since the first time I ordered it. I still have about a bag and a half left, but I should really start sipping it down before it loses too much flavour. I haven’t noticed any flavour degradation to date. I have to stop hoarding my favourite teas and enjoy them instead.
Does anyone know of a tea that tastes similar to this?
I don’t normally drink straight greens but I was still in that “must try all Butiki teas” mode. This was pretty good, pretty much what I expected…for it to be vegetal. I also got notes of corn and malt which was kind of an odd combination. Like others have mentioned, I noticed that the leaf was fairly broken up.
I thought that I had reviewed this tea before…weird, I guess Steepster ate my note.
This tea is so delicate. The oolong is buttery and floral and the grape is on the background. It isn’t too sweet or artificial tasting. This is really nice and almost “airy” if that makes sense.
I made my Sunday latte treat a little differently today. I used dark brown sugar which gave this tea a little bit more of a molasses flavour, which was good but I think I would stick with the regular light brown sugar. I also used closer to 2tsp of leaf in half a mug of water, adding half a mug of 2%milk.
And now for the best part, I used my immersion blender to froth the milk! Why the heck did I not think of doing this before?? It worked great!
Yum, this was a sweet, pumpkin, creamy treat on this cold fall morning!
