411 Tasting Notes
Today, I found out definitively this tea is the same as Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon. I had suspected, but it’s good to know for certain. We went to the shop today for some more, and they were out of loose leaf, but had some H&S boxed sachets. As the husband was seriously craving cinnamon tea, we picked it up, and yes-it’s the same tea. Mystery solved!
This smells AMAZING. Another tea I just want to carry around all day and huff. Oh, it’s wonderful. Flavor wise, it’s not bad either. : ) The almonds are smooth, the peppercorns add a little bit of heat at the finish, and the entire nose reminds me vaguely of marachino cherries. Which I like. Yum.
A nice, easy going tea, perfect for a Sunday morning. I really need to learn more about green pu-erhs, because every one of them that I’ve had has been really good.
needed something yummy on a cold and dreary day. Thought this might be refreshing while not overwhelming.
Needed something to wake me up this morning, and this fit the bill. Unfortunately, it means my sample is gone, but it’s gone to a better place, namely – ME. :)
Meh. Kinda like drinking vaguely tea flavored charcoal briquettes.
I am having tea fail with this tea. My first steep was so light to be almost untaste-able, and the other I over-reacted and oversteeped the other direction so the jasmine is trying to kill me.
It’s all my fault, I didn’t steep correctly. And it was a sample size – so I’ll have to go get more to try it again. SIGH.
Oh! This is what is Pai Mu Tan is supposed to taste like. Got it.
It’s an orange day today. Maybe I should follow this up with that Pu-erh Orange… anyway, this – as always – is tart and a wake-up call to my tastebuds. Mmmm.
This is a lovely way to start a morning. Mellow, smooth, and orange-y. Yum.
