13 Tasting Notes
My first cake and it’s delicious. I was nervous to steep a cake, but it went well. Very similar to Maidens Ecstasy from Samovar. Dark, sweet and flavoursome but not overpowering. Very nice morning blend. First steep at 3 minutes, second just as good at 1.5 minutes.
I can’t say much and be different from Silk Road Tea’s own description of this tea. It seems quite delicate, yet strong enough to warrant being an every day tea. Sweet and traditionally grassy but it doesn’t overload you. Quite satisfying and very good for the mind when steeping and thinking of the buddhist connection.
I found it a little tough to judge how much to use, I think I went a little under the correct amount in the end, but still enjoyed it. I steeped for about 2.5 minutes the first time, nearly 4 the second and both were tasty. Light and crisp this is a really mellow every day tea. I could drink this all day long.
