drank Decadence by The Simple Leaf
31 tasting notes

I figured I would treat myself to another cup of tea after plowing through my mountain of homework (I could have done more, but I’m not gonna).

So, I am sitting here with a freshly made cup of Decadence while listening to Disturbed’s Ten Thousand Fists album… track three, Decadence. That’ll do.

This brew smells more musty than I remember – like the inside of a barn after it rains… err something like that. I can still smell that familiar mild “spring” aroma. The color is also darker than my previous memory. It is almost the color of a blacker oolong.

The taste is a little bitey, dry, and nothing like I remember. Where is the smooth, gentle grassy taste? Hmm… maybe this sample is too old, or I steeped it too long.

“Decadence isn’t easy, is it?”

I am a 26 year old college graduate with a BA in Marketing. I also have an AS degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology, but I hope to go into Market Research as a career.

I fell in love with the taste and concept of tea in August of 2007 and I have been drinking and reviewing this fantastic substance ever since.

My other hobbies include photography, psychology, and philosophy (i.e. liberal, open-minded, friendly discussions).
