16 Tasting Notes
Da Hong Pao smelled sweeter than it tasted. When I had it, it was very bitter, and it’s one of those teas where if you like it you’ll like it or if you don’t you don’t. I did end up trying multiple cups of it because each cup tasted different each time. Towards the end when I had my 4th cup it started tasting sweet, but not enough to make me want to drink it again.
I really enjoy this tea. All the spices and fruity tastes really compliment each other. Since it’s an Indian Tea, I tried drinking it with milk, and I have to say it makes the tea more creamy. The milk adds more sweetness to it . The milk and the tea combined kind of remind me of a spiced latte.
