1123 Tasting Notes
I placed a Bitterleaf order in the middle of the pandemic, and it sadly just never arrived (stupid pandemic shipping issues). I was nervous about the package going missing again, so waited until just a couple of months ago to place an order again. The order arrived safely a couple of days ago, and I’m so in love with all of the teaware I got.
This is the lone tea I got in the order, and it’s a plum beauty for sure! It’s light and sweet, and was such a fun gonfu session. I couldn’t get enough of the stick sweet stone fruit flavor and aroma.
Thanks to Cameron for posting about this brand! I bought the sampler pack as soon as it became available again, and they arrived today! I was most intrigued by this blend- milk oolong, Assam black tea, cardamom, dates, figs, caramel, and roses (amongst a few other things). Quite an ingredient list. The smell upon opening the bag is incredibly strong. It’s soooo sweet smelling, and has an eggnog thing going on with it. I’m getting eggnog in the flavor too. Not really making out any of the individual ingredients, except the caramel. Not getting any of the flavor of the tea, which makes sense, as I can’t see much of it in the dry mix. Definitely need to revisit this one, as I have some mixed feelings.
