100 Tasting Notes
This was surprisingly strong. I didn’t expect the flavours to come out nearly as much as they did so I was pleasantly surprised. The ginger and lemongrass lingered nicely. It’s quite smooth and creamy, which will be the coconut. Being a coconut lover I wish it came out to play more, but a lovely drop all the same.
I went on a bit of a sampling kick and ordered 2 of the boxed Harney samplers, so I was able to compare Decaf to straight Earl Grey. On the whole I prefer Decaf. It’s significantly lighter than Harney’s Earl Grey. I haven’t tried a Lady Grey, but I’m suspicious it may fall into that category as it’s a heck of a lot lighter than Earl Grey. I thought it was lovely and it might end up being my new Earl Grey.
This is my first Chocolate tea and on the whole I liked it. I’m not a fan of rose, but somehow it pulled it off quite nicely, much to my surprise. That being said, the chocolate didn’t make make swoon, which, let’s be honest, is what I’m looking for. I’m reserving final judgement for my third steeping.
