drank Royal Grape by Richard
1314 tasting notes

Second grape tea of the day, this one brewed with water dispenser hot water. I had to go into work today :(

This is very similar to 1001 and 1 Royal Nights and again reminds me of a Dammann Frères tea. It’s just as bright and sparkling candylike with a soft rose addition, but with none of the strawberry or cheap green tea notes. More robust and with slightly more tannin texture since it’s an all black tea. Second steep with less water was fine but really the bag’s only good for one because fannings.

Between the two teas this morning, my craving for something grape flavored has been satisfied. But I still want some red wine :)

Flavors: Candy, Fruity, Grapes, Juicy, Muscatel, Rose, Tannin, Wood

I most enjoy loose-leaf, unflavored teas and tisanes. Always on the lookout for teas from countries and regions not commonly known for tea production or those that are not well represented in the western market. I seek these teas to gain an understanding, however vague, of how this plant performs in different climates.
