6 Tasting Notes
Visited today the new teashop Chaya in Helsinki. Scottich Caramel pu ehr tea from this shop is a total delight to senses. The tea smells heavenly before and after steeping. Colour is caramel-dark, and the aroma is strong, velvety and and sweet all the way. Caramel flavour is in harmony with the pu ehr earthy tones. It is a good dessert tea, can´t wait to try it with caramel dessert:). This is better than my previous pu ehr favourite (Numi chocolate pu ehr).
I tasted this tea in the teabag version. The name of this tea promises something very special, but I was disappointed. Firt, the smell isn´t very original. I tasted this tea raw (meaning without milk/honey/sugar) and I wasn´s impressed. To me, it tasted like regular assam tea. It was ok, but I could´t find any real aroma notes that would have really spiced the tea.
Thellou:) Started today my steepster account. Very nice site! I start with chocolate pu ehr. I love this numi version on pu ehr. Its rich, aromatic and not too earthy to my taste. I recommend it warmly to anyone starting to explore pu ehr. I drink this tea at work in the afternoon with a bite of dark chocolate and it really is a moment of joy in my working hours:)
