I don’t want to jinx anything, but I may just get caught up soon. I’m getting ever so much closer. OH joy! It will be weird for me when I’m not writing tasting notes for other people’s teas anymore. But it will be a good weird. It will also be weird reading what other people think about my teas again. Again … a good weird (at least I hope so!)
I think I enjoyed this more than some of the other tasters of this tea here on Steepster. That’s based solely on the numeric rating that I saw as I scrolled down while I was waiting for this page to load. I thought this was rather yummy.
I think I liked that I could really taste the black tea prominently. It tastes rich and there’s a touch of malt to it and the black tea melds nicely with these flavors. The toffee maybe brings out the malt a little bit. There is some astringency to this but it’s not an overpowering presence of astringency.
More chocolate would be good here. Not a surprise comment from me, right? The toffee is sweet and buttery.
