Recent Tasting Notes
Revisiting this one b/c I recalled it not being a favorite the last time I tried it. So now I am trying it again to decide if it is worthy of a tin.
I think this cup is better than the last. Perhaps b/c it is an 8 oz cup as opposed to my usual 16 oz mug. Perhaps there was fewer currants in my filter. This time around it just tastes a lot less currant-y (though the flavor is still there). There is more rose. Fruity sweetness, though no fruit is particularly distinctive besides the currant. It is nice but still not a favorite if I am being honest. This may be one I swap/give away.
This tea was an experience before I ever even tried it. Why? Ribs. This tea has “ribs” as an ingredient and when you attempt to translate the list as a whole, everything translates except for ribs. So I was a bit concerned about that. Thankfully tea friends came to the rescue and informed me that ribs means currants.
Honestly, I could have just tried looking at the leaf…or trying the tea because currant is prominent in both the dry leaf and the steeped tea. Also the green tea is a bit more prominent here than the base teas of the other Copenhagen blends I have tried so far, which is fair since this is from a different tea shop (a souvenir shop instead of the tea store since my sister was worried she wouldn’t get a chance to go to the tea shop and wanted to make sure she had to bring me). It’s a nice tea but doesn’t deliver the flavors I anticipated in light of the ingredient list. I blame the currants.
