19 Tasting Notes
I’ve had Earl Grey and masala chai teas before, but not in the same cup. It has a strong taste, both citrusy and spicy. I steeped the leaves a second time and whilst I expected the flavour to be stronger, it was less so.
Flavors: Citrus, Spicy
I bought some loose leaf tea samples from Vahdam via Amazon, and most of the ones I have left are pure black teas like this one.
It has a bitter flavour to it but not overly bitter. Overall, I quite enjoyed it.
Flavors: Bitter, Muscatel
This tea has a very floral taste, it’s tasty but not as delicious as some of the other teas I’ve tried from the samples I brought from Amazon. I steeped the leaves a second time, although for five minutes rather than three, the taste was stronger but still likeable.
Minty is one of my favourite flavours in tea/food, so this one sounded interesting to me. It tastes delicious with neither the green tea or the mint overpowering the other. I decided to steep the leaves a couple more times – the second cup had a darker appearance than the first whilst the minty flavour was stronger. The third steep was similar to the second.
This is a black tea that I don’t think I’ve had before today.
The tea is delicious with a fruity and floral taste, I found it quite enjoyable. I steeped the leaves twice, the second cup tasted a bit better than the first.
Flavors: Floral, Fruity
