464 Tasting Notes
I had a small pot of this at lunch with my croque monsieur at a little French Cafe neaar work. This is a lovely breakfast blend. It starts out golden sweet like an assam and the flavor builds with the power of a non-bitter, fruity ceylon. There is a delicate natural citrus note in this as well This was a very relaxing lunch! I needed it as today is a madhouse at work!
Well My sister cold-steeped this and since it was the only cold thing in the fridge I decided t have it tonight even though I had meant to try this before a run on the first time. This brew certainly invigorating- spicy cinnamon, sweet berries, and a refreshing herbal taste all combine to awake the senses. I’ll definitely have this again.
Thanks, Greenteafairy for this tea!
The only English on this tea was the brand name, Ssangkye Tea, so I don’t know much about. The dryleaf is very light and looks more like an herbal tea because it has flower petals, bits of flowers and fruit pieces. Could there also be yabao? Tastes a little woody, sweet too.
I got this at the NYC meet-up, but I can’t remember if it was from Greenteafairy or if it was from Nicole_Martin. Thank you, whichever one of you gave it to me! I need to start labeling my teas a little better. :-)
I drank this straight without anything in it. I really liked that I could taste the Assam. So many chais are so overly-spiced that you can’t taste the tea itself. This assam has the golden, sweet, and malty taste that I’m growing to really love. The spices are a nice blend- maybe slightly too heavy with the cardamon. I’m really craving some honey for this. I should start keeping some at work.
Sad sipdown! I probably should have bought more of this with my last order. This definitely is the never-ending gobstopper of tea. It’s always changing. A different aspect is highlighted every time I drink it.Ah well! I’m sticking to promise to myself not. To do any on-line ordering until Black Friday. The blends sale is not helping me in this. Lol! So far I’m strong.
