2243 Tasting Notes
This one is labelled “Thailand – Mariage Freres” only I can’t find this tea on their website or on steepster.
It’s a super mega fine CTC black tea. Very strong. Would be so good with sweetened condensed milk. But I’m drinking it with vanilla sugar and regular milk.
Just popping in here because Sil sent me this sample ages and ages ago and I finally tried it.
It’s, uhh, dirt tea. The stuff people always say tastes like chocolate.
I only finished half the cup.
Thank you for sharing, Sil, but this one didn’t work for me!
ALSO tasting note 2222. -
Oh, this is good! The orange flavour reminds me strongly of another orange leafy-herbal tea I used to have.
It’s very much orange-sage-ginger. I added a tiny bit of honey to take it towards sweet and away from savoury.
Right up my alley.
Roswell’s description is true for the flavour notes, too. Earthy. Orange. A bit of spice. Yum.
(Also, i FINALLY got it today! I ordered right at the end of November, and had an argument with customs (tea is not taxed in Canada…). I’m super excited to drink the rest of what I got.)
I was so excited to see this tea! There’s an Earl Grey Grapefruit that I had and loved, but I can’t remember if I’ve been too lazy to go get more, or if the company doesn’t carry it anymore.
Anyways, I got this one. So delicious.
I do occasionally love me an Earl Grey, and the addition of grapefruit is perfection.
With maple whipped cream, because I made some yesterday for my coffee and why not.
They’re going more construction on the building again today – it’s a holiday. Spraying noxious chemicals outside my kitchen door, and drilling into the supports under my living room floor. I have a very tiny apartment, so there is no where else to go.
At least I have tea. And I think I shall make some of these. https://www.budgetbytes.com/2017/02/homemade-chocolate-crescent-rolls/
