15 Tasting Notes
Although I tried this many times, People’s Green was too grassy for me (as in I went to my yard & mowed some for tea). I have a couple of traveler’s tins of this and when stuck away from home and mistakenly taking only these, haven’t been able to find the taste that I can enjoy in this tea.
I’ll try it with some of my stronger teas to see if it can be moderated; otherwise it’s going in my swap pile. #tea
Trying this for the first time was quite a shock — way too much cinnamon & cloves to the nose, so strong to the point I questioned whether I wanted to make a cup with it or not. Alas, the taste is just as overpowering. There is too much cinnamon & cloves to let the nutmeg, ginger & cardamon shine in harmony with them. It’s like someone slapped me upside the head with a branch of that cinnamon tree instead of singing the the flavors of chai.
Don’t get me wrong; I’m a big fan of cinnamon & cloves (and the rest of the spices), in fact I’ll add them at the drop of a hat to most recipes. In comparison, I really enjoy the RoT White Chai but this Stash tea goes into my swap pile. #tea
