Five months since writing a tasting note? Sad. I’ve been dealing with a heap of health issues so sitting down and enjoying a cup of tea, writing down its notes, etc, has unfortunately not been a priority for me.
I picked this up in Banff last summer. I never cared for their setup there, with all the teas stored in clear glass jars next to a bright window, so for that reason, I never picked anything up until last time. I thought fiiiiiine.
This one smelled the most promising at the time but even then, having it fresher then, and now, ten months later, it’s a little boring. The base has always had a dusty undertone to it, and although the chocolate chips are abundant in the blend, they don’t seem to do much? I can smell nuts in the steeped tea more than I can taste them, and there’s a bitterness that makes it more akin to walnuts than pecans.
