180 tasting notes

Perhaps a pot of this will help clear up my sinuses this morning… :-)

I’m a big fan of spicy food. Vindaloo & Kadai are my go to orders at when getting Indian for dinner, and I love to douse my tofu scramble with Sriracha. So, I figured I’d give this a try. Color of liquid during pour is YELLOW. Like, neon yellow. When the mug is full, it appears more golden (little darker than a plain green typically appears), but the stream when I poured from pot to cup was wild.

It smells a bit stronger than it tastes, but there’s still a nice little burn at the back of the throat after a couple of sips. I’m definitely tasting more of a mild, cinnamon heat than anything from the chili peppers. And the peppercorns work really well here; I can taste them, but they aren’t overpowering.

A tea fanatic who works in the tech sector, I purchase most of my tea online. The numerical ratings are to help me remember which teas I should re-order. 85+ means it’s worth a re-purchase. (If I ever get through all of the new ones I want to try!)

It’s pretty obvious from my tealog, but I have special place in my heart for flavored blacks and good rooibos. I also love oolongs, but apparently have expensive taste in that area, so I don’t purchase them too often. Learning to appreciate green tea, but not a fan of overly vegetal ones. Whites make a great iced tea.

I love to try new teas and will sample most anything once. Although I’ll usually pass on Earl Grey or super floral blends.

I drink my tea with no additions, unless otherwise noted in the review.
