1042 Tasting Notes
I received this in a recent Verdant order, but it looks like it is now sold out. Charcoal and roasted notes open up into raisin and deep fruitiness. There’s a strong minerality/rock flavor that contrasts with the raisin notes nicely. Subsequent steeps reveal an intense fruitiness. A bit of lychee and mango.
Flavors: Fruity, Lychee, Mango, Mineral
I thought I had reviewed this already, but it looks like not. I just finished up my 15g packet, and I will certainly miss this one. Such an awesome balance of banana, bread notes, and maple. Most recently, I made a latte with it and it was a dessert in a mug.
Flavors: Baked Bread, banana, Maple Syrup
I just finished off my sample size and purchased another bag. The cocoa and anise is so well-balanced, and such an interesting combination, I’ve found myself craving the flavor combo recently. August Uncommon posted a recipe for an affogatto using this tea, and I’m very interested in trying it. I’ll have to grab some vanilla ice cream next time I’m at the store.
This came in the breakfast sampler I purchased on sale after Christmas. I love this type of sampler and have been really enjoying tasting through the set. This one is super nice. A bold, malty black base. Cocoa, vanilla, and a tiny bit of cinnamon. I made it sweetened with a bit of honey, and added a splash of oat milk.
