14 Tasting Notes
This is a great Chai, I am especially enjoying it in the winter. I wanted this for an decaffeinated after lunch drink. A good balance of ginger, cinnamon and clove, nothing seems to be overpowering.
Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger, Rooibos
This was an Asian style steeping (I used a gaiwan).
The first infusion of the tea was amazing! Gave me hope, that one day I would like to drink Pu’ers. It was full bodied, incredibly smooth, with a rosey floral taste with a hint of wet leaves. The finish lingered for quite some time too. The color was a almost brick red, but with an orange hue to it. Kind of like a sunset.
The second taste was as dark as it can get at dusk, without it being entirely black. The taste was a strong wet leaves taste, with the floral taste on the side.
Flavors: Musty, Rose, Wet Earth
When I first tasted this tea, I thought the jasmine was too over powering. But it may have been because I had not sipped on jasmine tea recently. As I started to experience the cup of tea, I noticed the jasmine was not overpowering, but the taste of the tea complemented the Jasmine so well it was hard for me to separate the tastes. I imagine the tea was grown near bamboo, because as I sip the tea i notice the smell and taste which arouses a scenic garden with bamboo and flowers in my minds eye. The flavor profile has Jasmine (shockingly), sweet grass, and a sweetness reminiscent of blueberries. It has grown into one of my favorite Jasmine teas.
Flavors: Blueberry, Jasmine
