740 tasting notes

I have had this sitting in my swap-in box for months. I’m still not so sure of my tea tastes are experienced enough to taste what others taste, but alas, I shall try it today. Also, I feel terrible, in that I can’t remember who sent this to me. I know it was either Kittena or Cavovorax, however I looked through my inbox to determine and of course I had deleted the message to keep myself organized. So silly of me. I apologize profusely for that.

I shall update as I sip away here. I’m also researching methyl hydroxybenzoate. Joy.

The initial sip is very smooth. I believe I’m getting some barely in the background there, which is lovely. As it cools and I get further into my cup I’m getting that hint of dark chocolate almost.

I’m drinking this so fast – it’s just so delicious! Thank goodness I can expect so many resteeps.

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug!

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs, rooibos (specifically red, I’m more open to green), honeybush, and matés are not my favourite. I tend to avoid them altogether unless others find them so amazing it would be a travesty to not at least try.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
