429 Tasting Notes
I know this isn’t a breakfast tea but it looks like coffee and the taste is very earthy and mellow. It has no bitterness or astringency at all and is very easy to drink. I like the fact that its easy to measure, just one birds nest in 8 oz of water and 6 minutes later you have it. Its also cheap as you can steep it 4-5 times and the taste doesn’t waver much. I like it.
I got bored drinking different assams so I decided to blend a few together. This is actually very good. Its very smooth and brisk at the same time. It has no bitterness and just a touch of astringency. It has that assam malty smell and taste. Just great for a breakfast tea. I also stole the name from Rijje.
I needed a green tea tonight and this one was the first one I grabbed. This tea actually smells and tastes slightly smoky and I love smoky. The tea is very smooth and vegetal and smoky. I like this tea much better this time than when I had it last. No bitterness or astringency and a slightly peppery finish. Very nice.
I really like Kenyan tea. This one is so easy to drink. This tea is brisk and malty with no bitterness or astringency that I can find. It steeps up to an amber color and is very robust and bright. It reminds me of an assam. It has hints of berry and finishes very clean.
