Backlogging from last night.

I tried adding milk to this tea but it pretty much killed the rich, earthy, cocoa-y flavour of the tea, just leaving behind the tanin-y/smokey flavour (I think it’s what some people are calling cigarette flavour, and I think I might agree with them for all that I’ve never smoked).

Note to self: Yunnan teas and milk don’t mix. DX

I agree – this tea is much more enjoyable without milk.

Ew. Will remember this.

It’s really not an “Ew” thing, it’s just that dairy seems to squelch the flavor of the tea.

Got it in one, Cynthia. :)

@Cynthia Carter Ah. I read “cigarette flavor” and my brain recoils. In any case, I won’t be trying this with milk.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
