8941 Tasting Notes
I thought i’d try this one out today. Monday morning and i wanted something i was fairly certain i’d appreciate. Turns out, i was right. This is a bolder assam, not very malty – more on the sweet side. No bitterness, just a relatively smooth cup. Better review of this one when i can have it in a mug instead of my travel mug :)
let me begin by saying that i pretty much hate mate. I thought i’d try this though because i Do like lemonade. I tried this one as a cold brew and it’s not half bad. I’m not sure if the long brewing process helped smooth out the mate or what, but this was highly unexpected and one of the reasons i still try things i don’t like – both in tea and in “food.” it’s not really lemony to me – mostly strawberry like and something i can’t place. But as a cold brew with a little sweetner, not half bad.
i’ve had this a few times now and it’s just not the same tea that it was. I’m wondering if my taste buds have shifted or if this is just a new harvest from the first time i bought it. Will have to keep playing with it, but if it remains this way, i’m likely to pass this on to someone else as i just don’t love it like i used to.
