355 Tasting Notes
Another JacquelineM tea..
This is very unique, especially as an Assam. There’s absolutely no bitterness as I’ve found with many Assams; instead, there’s a strange almost-sweetness that does have a hint of that cooked honey flavor that Harney & Sons advertises. I’m not getting much malt at all. This is really hard to describe, but I like it.
And another JacquelineM tea.
This is heads and shoulders above the only other coconut black tea that I’ve tried, Adagio’s. I like the idea of combining coconut with Nilgiri tea instead of Adagio’s Ceylon. The taste is improved tenfold. And this has more of a toasted coconut taste than Adagio’s version – not sure if that’s due to the Nilgiri, or if it actually uses toasted coconut.
Either way, it’s really, really good. I may have to order a full size. Yummmm.
I kind of want to reserve judgment on this, because I’m drinking it not long after a workout and I’m feeling a bit dehydrated, but.. for as slowly as I’m drinking it, it’s very tasty. I was expecting more of a cocoa taste, but this cup seems to be more spicy and sweet. That’s fine by me; I love anything with cardamom.
Thanks to JacquelineM for this sample! More to come.
