2816 Tasting Notes
I have discovered I am not such a fan of chocolate in tea, nonetheless I am drinking this because I bought some! It does not really have much of an aroma at all. The flavor is not too strong, just a mild orange black tea with a hint of cocoa. What really makes this kinda special for me is the cardamom, I am a cardamom freak. I would probably not go out of my way to buy this again but it certainly is a good, pleasant dessert tea.
This is one of my favorite herbal teas, thank you again Rishi! I love the dark purple color of this tea and it smells divine. Warming and smooth. The plum and cinnamon are deep and earthy while the hibiscus gives it a slightly tart note, but not too overwhelming. I could drink this for hours every day and never get sick of it. Very highly recommended for fruit tea lovers as a unique experience.
So I discovered a Lupicia opened up in San Francisco, I’ve been trying a lot of their yummy flavored teas. This one is charming, the pineapple flavor is very pronounced and leaves you with a slightly tart finish – very refreshing and clean. Definitely a good match for the oolong. I did not pick up any coconut, however…
hmm. what can I say about puerhs – it seems like you either love them or hate them.
I am fairly new to the puerh scene but discovered they make a great substitute for coffee. This tea is low in tannins and not very acidic to the stomach.
The first infusion is indeed very dark, as several others have commented. The flavor is mildly malty and earthy. I added So Delicious coconut milk creamer to this because I prefer my black tea with some creaminess. This reminds me of a shiitake mushroom broth and made a nice breakfast drink.
Overall I was very pleased but I’m not sure it’s something I would go out of my way to find again.
