Recent Tasting Notes
Alright, I seriously need to stop picking random teas I find in my grandparents’ cabinet. I have no idea how old this is, but judging by the smell, it’s not at its freshest. Also, I could find nothing about this tea or the manufacturer online, which is another bad sign. The image you see was taken on my digital camera for proof that it exists.
Surprisingly, I like it for what it is (cheap off-brand bagged tea). It reminds me a bit of Tazo’s “Awake”. It’s malty and smooth, not too astringent. There is a bit of a honey-like aftertaste that I really like. I added sugar, but I could imagine this would be good straight too. I’ll probably never see another bag of it, though, as I assume it came from a hotel breakfast or something similar…
