9 Tasting Notes
This tea was quite interesting. It was earthy, and almost leathery in flavor. It reminds me a bit of barns and country living. It was definitely smooth but difficult to place taste-wise. I will need to have this one a few more times to develop my feelings on it.
Flavors: Earth, Leather
I really enjoyed the smoky flavor and smell of this tea. It was actually reminiscent of coffee or hot chocolate. It was nice and smooth while being full-bodied. It was not astringent or grassy.
Flavors: Campfire, Cocoa, Coffee, Mocha, Smoke, Smooth
I found this tea to be smooth, yet very delicate for a black tea. I definitely used too little leaf… I will try to adjust that the next time I prepare it. I definitely pick up on the fruity and floral notes. Overall it is a very drinkable tea, but lacks anything of particular note to be memorable.
Flavors: Berry, Grapes, Muscatel, Red Wine
