3438 Tasting Notes
Thank you Sil for sharing this with me. I have friends visiting for a week from New York and so this morning when a friend asked for plain tea, I have her a choice of a number of straight blacks. This is the one she settled on and tbh this cup is much better than the last which means it is a great way to say goodbye. There is a hint of dryness but once I get past that there is rich caramel and notes of earthy sweet potato. A very nice cuppa to start the morning.
I drank this earlier and never got a chance to log it. This is one i was curious about and it come to me via the awesome Roswell Strange. Unfortunately, this only further proved how much I dislike chai teas. Seriously, this was a whole lot of fennel and spice and none of it was particularly pleasant. I tried adding milk but the only thing I liked in the sip was the milk itself and not the tea. Ultimately, the cup got dumped because I just couldn’t get through it. Well, now I know so I am grateful to Roswell Strange for the chance to try this tea.
Thank you Dexter for sending some of this my way. I was holding off trying it in hopes of having it when I freed my variable temp kettle from storage jail but that doesn’t seem to be happening anytime soon so I just decided to go ahead and make it. My first few sips were a nice fruity flavor, though not a distinctive flavor. Then, I ate dinner, and as I ate, the tea cooled and the green base took over and left a grassy taste in my mouth. So this isn’t bad when hot but really should not be given the chance to cool. Hopefully this isn’t reflected in the cold brew of this that I made a couple days ago…
