8556 Tasting Notes
noms! I have thoroughly enjoyed this one. Made a cup of this after dinner – my other half is going to be working most evenings this week so i’m on my own a lot. I really like that this is sweet with a kick of spicy. I’ll be picking up more of this in future – I really like this type of tea in the evenings while reading a book or relaxing.
mmm i keep forgetting to write notes on this tea. I’ve had it a few times now and figured since i’ve shared a little of this with a few people, i should get to writing a note on this one. this is an interesting tea. it reminds me of “red rose” from my chilhood but a better quality lol. this is more of a milk and sugar sort of tea for me with a rich thickness to it, a slight bit of malt and a brightness here that i could see turning bitter if over steeped.
i need to remember trying this steeped in milk before i’m actually finished with it. While this is an excellent chai, it’s still not my favourite. I generally find myself pulling some of the cloves out, because there are a few too many for my tastes. I so like the sweetness of this one that goes along nicely with the peppery sort of spiciness to it. for sure happy with this one from WP :)
…and that ends this tea in my cupboard for now… I’ll be picking up more of this though as i REALLY like it in the cooler weather. Something about the blend of the needles and the berries just works for me. I also like getting a few steepings out of the brew without it going tasteless.
Final Count: 74 (which is great since i have about 15 teas incoming through swaps and a couple orders….though i’m not likely to see the bulk of them until the end of november. )
Relaxing cup of this tonight while watching a little got with my other half. I’ll have to figure out if i want more of this one in short order since i’ll be in Chicago again, but i’m not sure yet. I like that this is fruity and caramelly, but maybe i just want those things separate? soooo undecided lol.
