14 Tasting Notes
This was smokier than I had imagined but I really like smokey teas so it was a good surprise. It is very bright and smooth which tones down a bit of the Assam’s natural bitterness. It is a lot less intense than an Irish breakfast or even and English breakfast tea.
Also tried this is a homemade tea latte and the milk and vanilla brought out more of a caramel type flavor like you’d get with a coffee that wasn’t over roasted/brewed.This made the tea even smoother.
I am going to be buying more bags in 2020 because it is a nice alternative to Earl Grey for my go to weekend cuppa.
I was doubtful that I would like this blend because I am not a big Chai person, but I tried some that my friend had and I was pleasantly surprised.
The best way that I can describe this tea is ‘apple cider tea.’ It’s got a nice apple taste and just enough cinnamon that it didn’t distract from the whole thing.
It is good without sugar, but I find that adding a little bit of sugar really cuts the minor sharpness that the tea can have if you brew it a bit too long. Which I have a bad habit of doing.
Flavors: Apple, Honey
When I bought this I was hoping that the apricot wasn’t going to get overwhelmed by the other teas in the blend, but the worrying was for not.
This tea is simply divine and the amount of apricot in it is perfect. It goes really well with the dark flavors of the mambo and toasted mate teas and I will be ordering this again.
