10771 Tasting Notes
mmmmm so much chai in my cupboard and it’s still not exactly cold enough in Toronto to the point where i want to drink it all the time. However, as there’s not a lot left of this one, i opted to try and drink this one down in the next little while as i need to do some serious sip downs of a bunch of things assap. Mostly because there are 13 lovely teas sitting on my kitchen table waiting to be tried! I also want to do a few swaps in the new year to try out a few things.
This chai? still tasty and delicious. I really like the laoshan black in the chai – it rounds it out nicely so that it’s not too spicy and yet not “boring” either.
sooo delicious! I really need to place another red leaf order soon. I’m gradually working my way through most of the flavours i have and I think? i’ve got my favs narrowed down. it’s so hard though when everything’s soooo delicious! :)
I really enjoy adding just a splash of cheesecake to the black cherry matcha – it seems to bring out the cherry just a bit to make it POP!
COLD brew! I’m pretty sure the only way i’ll get through this is as cold brewed tea with honey. It makes it a nice beverage, especially as I’m still sick/coughing. it’s just not a WOW tea given all the exposure i’ve had to wonderful other teas in the past few months thanks to all my steepster peeps!
TRAVELLING TEA BOX!
So while i may not be drinking this exactly…i AM having it in the soup recipe i tried tonight and it’s delicious! The tea adds a smokey flavour to the soup without overpowering it :) Not sure how i’ll manage this one straight though but i figured in cooking first…move up to drinking it straight. My first official go at this whole smokey tea thing :)
