4 Tasting Notes View all

From Camillia Sinensis

Here is a rarity produced at 1600m by a cooperative of farmers in a mountainous, sunny and humid environment, ideal for the cultivation of tea. Its strong, full-bodied liquor boasts malt and vegetal notes (tobacco, sweet pepper) typical of the assamica cultivars. Fine nuances of dried fruit, cocoa and spices (camphor) add to its breakfast character.

Tasting note 7500!!! Whhaaaaatttt!

Stopped by Camellia Sinensis after work yesterday; I picked up a yixing pot as a birthday present for myself and a teacup, along with some tea.

This was something that a coworker of mine actually really likes from Camellia Sinensis and I had never tried it so I told her that if they still had it in stock I’d pick some up to try. It actually smelled delicious from the tin, which made me even more interested in trying it. I’m sipping on the very last bit of a mug of it currently and it’s been super tasty but also just a touch weird. I’m finding it very full bodied, brisk, and malty – but the thing that’s most prominent to me is how much it reminds me of Orange Chicken.

Let me clarify; I’ve never actually had ‘real’ orange chicken since I’ve been a vegetarian since I was like nine years old – but there’s a company that makes a Vegan “Orange Chicken” and it’s my absolute favourite “instant” vegetarian/vegan dish that I’ve ever had. I eat it probably once a week. This doesn’t taste at all like the fake chicken, but it’s startlingly similar to the mandarin/orange sauce. Sweet, but also savory and softly spiced – orange notes, some warming spices (ginger, cumin maybe?), heck even a hint of something that reminds me of the garlic in that sauce. It’s SO GOOD though; the perfect mesh of fruity notes and savory elements in a black tea.

I’m not sure if this is what my coworker is getting from the tea that she likes so much, but regardless I’m very happy that she recommended this tea to me as it’s pretty incredible.

Someday I’d like to go back and figure out when my 1st tasting note was, then do the math and find out what my average number of tasting notes per day, month, and year works out to be – it’s definitely more than 1,000 yearly since I’ve only been drinking tea for six(ish) years.

Congrats on 7.5k! I’ve had black teas that reminded me of orange chicken sauces or sweet and sour sauce, as well. It’s a very tasty flavor note!
