Sipdown no. 23 of 2020 (no. 618 total). A sample.
It’s with a wistfulness that I sip down the American Tea Room samples I have left.
I rated this one particularly high, and yes, it deserves it. Yunnan is likely to be my favorite black tea forever — the richness, the maltiness, and here, the sweetness that reminds me of molasses. I was very sad when ATR went away.
And I’m sad that this is gone.
But the really important question is — did anyone ever find a substitute for Brioche? I still have a sample of that I really should sip down but if there’s no substitute I don’t know if I can bring myself to do it any time soon.
