10 Tasting Notes
Before adding water noted the Dark blue-green leaves and bits of flowers. At first sip was surprised to find the floral taste weakened the usual bitterness of black tea, tasting dry, but not over sweet like some floral teas will. This taste was good to the bottom of the cup. On second steep, the same effect was not possible the tea became too weak to create the same taste or color.
Before adding the water the aroma strong and floral struck me with promise. After 4 min steep a light yellow-green color with same floral scent at first sip. This flavor lasted to the last sip. On a whim I tried a second steep and was not disappointed, the tea was understandably lighter in color but held the same floral taste. This only began to lessen by half-cup. A very pleasing Tea.
The scent of the tea was very promising, dark and nutty. After pouring and steep the coconut flavor was nice against the black tea. I may have let it steep too long as when it began to cool the coconut flavor was overwhelmed by the black tea taste.
Mild floral scent in bag. Moderate black tea (low acid) with minor floral notes. Leaving bag in cup, as it cools the flavor deepens loosing some of the delicate herbal flavors.
Loose leaf tea, ground fine. Produces a robust, copper-colored tea that makes for a fine morning or mid-day cup.
Without the milk It came off a dense black tea will, heavy but no emotion. Will definately try with milk next time.
A very satisfying tea with many layers. Captivating in scent and taste. Worth a second cup.
One of my favorites. The flavors of mint lime and rum are easily tasted in each cup. An all year tea for me, it is mellow but full flavored.
Delightful taste and spicy-ness of pumpkin pies in Fall. Will have to try again with milk as suggested.
Using a gifted sample, the aroma of the dry tea (in bag) is alluring. This scent carries over well once brewed and let steep (2 min). The taste dances on the tongue like a light cake. Cinnamon and Vanilla combine evenly, but don’t completely over power the other notes. An enjoyable seasonal tea.
