651 Tasting Notes
I’ve neglected my tea log so much, thanks to work, but I’ve also been neglecting my tea (again thanks to work). Mostly I’ve just been having Harney and Sons tea bags over and over, or Tazo when I’m really desperate. Hard times, folks.
Anyway, I did pick up this herbal loose leaf tea in a little shop and it seemed like a good time to check in. The tea is a little on the light side, but it has good flavor, a pleasant balance mainly of cinnamon and lemongrass. It smells kind of like cherry but doesn’t taste cherry, though there is a touch of fruitiness.
I drank this whole bag before I realized I never stopped to write a tasting note. This tea grew on me pretty quickly. It’s a bit light compared to most Irish breakfasts, but still hefty enough to be a breakfast tea. I liked the flavor, and since it wasn’t as acidic as the average breakfast tea, it sat a lot better on my stomach.
