26 Tasting Notes
Light, mellow, meh.
Thought I’d start back to the “cuppa before bed” with the matcha in my fridge. It’s old enough that I doubt it’s as potent as it should be, but this did okay, considering I got the water too hot. It’s definitely a bit bitter tonight, but my own fault. But the tin is nearly done, and I have an un-labeled container of more old matcha in the fridge that I think I’ll just use for matcha lattes, etc. I’ll go order some new, fresh matcha tomorrow.
Hooray for bold, wild tea on a chaotic day!
This tea is rich, bold, and has that sort of “yeasty” note under the lighter, more pervasive muscatel flavor. Some days I like it, other days, not so much…it’s a mood thing with this tea. Some days (like today), it’s exactly what I want.
It’s been cold and rainy for the last two days…making Lapsang the perfect compliment to the weather.
I do adore this tea – smoky, smooth and sweet. It’s my rainy-day tea, and that describes today perfectly.
Something sweet and light for this afternoon…a harbinger of spring? Perhaps…
Rich, bold, smooth, peppery and a little smokey – this is just the perfect example of a damn fine Yunnan tea. I am enjoying it immensely. Serious yumminess.
Hoping this will perk me up for the afternoon…
Thought I’d try this for my afternoon cuppa – it’s a bit drying, but very smooth and rich. I’m quite enjoying it.
