Dry leaf smells very zesty with citrus. I am concerned that the hibicus may be over-powering in this blend- I tend to be sensitive to sour hibiscus.
The hibiscus is remarkably well-blended. I will try to infuse this for longer in the future.
A distinctively peppery chai, leaving a warming spicy feeling on the tongue. The actual tea is smooth with no bitter notes, making it easy to enjoy black and without sugar. Ginger and pepper are key to this blend, with the classic chai ingredients, like cloves, taking more of a back seat, making this a chai that offers something a little different, being the spiciest of Christmas Tea.
Flavors: Ginger, Pepper, Spices, Spicy
Strong smoked salmon smokey note in the aroma, which I have found to be characteristic of all the Dalreoch teas I have sampled thus far. The smokey note in the aroma is very well captured in the actual flavour of the tea.
The smokey note does not combine well with the sweetness of the rose petal. The tea flavour itself seems mild and dull. Overall, I feel that the major flavours are not well-balanced. Mouthfeel is moderate-thin.
The aroma of this tea brewing had a strong smoked salmon aroma with the sweetness of the white was able to come through.
The smoked salmon note comes through strongly but the white tea taste is robust enough to come through on its own as well. The tea has both sweet and savoury notes which are typically quite difficult to balance. Mouthfeel is medium. Sweetness is soft and dull on the sip but had a sharper edge at the back of the throat.
Flavors: Smoked, Sweet
The aroma of the dry leaf was slightly fruity and smoky.
The brewing leaves had aromas of sweet smokey salmon and vegetal.
The brewed tea has a very thick mouthfeel. There is a very strong characteristic white tea flavour with the smokey salmon note blooming into the aftertaste. I find it quite unique to have a white tea with a strong savoury note. Very faint sweetness with some sawdust woody notes.
Flavors: Fishy, Sawdust, Smoked, Sweet
