Strange VariaTEA TTB: Tea #8

I was a little intrigued by this one so I figured I’d give it a whirl, but sadly I found this flavour pretty muted – more of a floral black with malted elements and a touch of muscatel flavour as well but all of those qualities in very flat and unrefined ways. I anticipate that this is one of those teas that, a few months from now, I probably wont even remember having tried…

You always remember the “great” and the “ghastly” when it comes to tea, but the things that fall in the middle?? Nope.

This is the second tea in today’s tournament style sipdown challenge pairing. It went head to head with another single-estate Palais des Thes tea, Genmaicha Yama. Check out the note for that here:

Normally black teas trump green teas for me. That said, I do enjoy genmaicha quite a bit so I didn’t think this would be such an easy defeat for this black tea. Drinking it now, I am surprised that my preference is actually for the genmaicha.

While this may be a black tea, its not the type of black tea I usually go for. I like smooth, malty, bready, dessert-like black teas and this is not that. Instead, this is more brisk and a touch astringent. It’s got the floral quality of a darjeeling (I looked it up and it is a darjeeling) that might be nice for many but to me always reads drying. So this was a miss for me and thus Genmaicha Yama is moving on!
