334 Tasting Notes
Because I am braver at trying coffee-flavoured teas, now, LOL.
I like Espresso Yourself better than this one, though I suspect that may have to do with the fact that I had more of a flavour to that one than I had here (less leaves, not steeped as long as it could have been). Also, that ones seems to be a lot less simpler in composition, so there might have been too many flavour profiles wrestling to de domiannt in this. Overall, not terrible, and okay in a pinch.
Day #12 of tea!
One of the first teas I ever had from DT, hence the inclusion in the advent. Nostalgia purposes, for sure! I’m lowering my rating slightly on this one, as I don’t think I liked it as much this go around as I did before, haha. Black teas are still my favourite, but I think I made this too sweet and/or there was too much toffee flavour in my cup.
Day #11 of tea!
Another new one for me! The smell on this one was amazing – I do love a good banana nut bread (though preferably also with chocolate, lol).
My biggest beef with this, unfortunately, is that it is very, very heavy – and there wasn’t enough leaf in my 10g sample for two solid cups (vital, since I share the tea of the days with my mother, and she got to this one first). As a result, my cup was a lot weaker than I had hoped for, and I steeped this for a loooooong time. The flavour was good, but weak.
If I were to get this one again, I’d obviously have to buy more to get it to the strength I want, but I don’t know if it would be worth it for the amount of tea I would get. Pity.
Day #10 of tea!
Hurrah, finally a new one. A plain oolong, at that. I don’t get to have these very often. This one’s good, I have to say. Not my favourite (and I still like plain black teas better), but there’s a bit of a fruity taste with this, which I wasn’t expecting. Of course, it’s limited edition, so I shouldn’t get used to it, haha.
