19 Tasting Notes
Really good, especially for a decaf tea. Usually I don’t even bother with decaf black teas because they’re usually either bland and devoid of flavor or strange and chemical in taste. But this is the one exception.
It packs a huge punch and is just as hearty and satisfying as the caffeinated Yorkshire/Yorkshire Gold teas. Milk is pretty much a necessity with this one, as I’m pretty sure that drinking it plain would probably cause my jaw to lock up for about a month or so :P
Definitely my favorite Damn Fine Tea. Smoother than the Double Knit Blend, but more flavorful and pronounced than the Tiger Assam. This has everything that I look for in a black tea: It’s malty, rich, slightly chocolately, and almost but not quite bitter. When someone says “black tea”, this is what first pops into my mind.
Works great as both a morning and afternoon tea, depending on the steep time. Love this one!
Love this one. Rich, strong, sweet, and complex. This tea definitely shines with a longer brewing time. I tried 2:30 for my first cup and didn’t really get much, but I did 3:45 this morning got so many delicious flavors! Lovely.
Flavors: Pumpkin, spice, fruit, malt, and honey.
I’m having a cup of this right now and…wow. There’s something about this tea that just tastes so comforting. It reminds me a lot of a nice oolong, but it also smells and tastes really brothy, like chicken soup.
I could absolutely see this being my go-to tea for when I’m sick, but I only got a sample of this. I’m looking on Butiki’s website and this is just a little bit out of my price range for now, but I’ll definitely be buying some in the future. This tea is amazing! :D
Flavors: Chicken Soup, Chicken Soup
