1818 Tasting Notes
Finally a sipdown today. I needed to finish up at least one tea. I had this with a friend and she reported it was her favourite out of those we tried. I enjoyed it, but find it to be finicky (too light in flavour, always tastes washed out, even using more leaf or long steeps). This time I decided to gong fu it…because why not? Yes, I gong fu’d a flavoured black tea. Anyway, it worked out much better. More flavour came out in later steeps (6 total, 2 minutes per steep, 350 mL boiling water). It still wasn’t srong enough for a latte, but I enjoyed the delicious brown sugar and cinnamon flavours.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Spicy, Sugar
Sipdown. I’ve been slowly clearing out my tea cabinets because I have so many little samples. My caffeine free/decaf tisanes/teas always have a high turnover rate, but my drawer is pretty full right now and I’m happy to clear a bit of space.
Flavors: Citrus, Cream, Lemon, Lime, Pineapple, Rooibos, Sweet
