42 Tasting Notes
I’m pretty sure I didn’t order the small package of this that came in my order from Yunnan Sourcing recently. Thanks for the sample!
I really like this a lot. Had a cup yesterday afternoon—ah, I guess that’s what people are meaning when they say “malty”? Very nice. Not bitter or astringent. It brewed up very dark, and I thought maybe it would be one I’d have to drink up with milk, but no.
Wish I could say something more sophisticated about the flavor, this tea probably deserves it. But that is not my strong suit.
Yeah, Yunnan Sourcing typically includes a sizable free sample in every order. I got this one as a sample too!
Drinking up the last bit of this on my shelf! I quite like it, though I’m not terribly fond of the licorice/anise part of the flavor. It’s difficult to find a good herbal tea blend that isn’t super sweet or full of things I don’t like much (hibiscus, the aforementioned licorice). There’s enough going on here otherwise that I mostly enjoy it, particularly the cinnamon and peppercorns.
I’m…hmm. I’m not sure if I liked this. More detail here: http://www.annleckie.com/2015/12/23/yak-butter-tea/
