526 tasting notes

I was commenting on my blog on how I was just beginning to get into tea when somebody found me and suggested this site. After a day of lurking, I liked what I saw and here I am. I just picked up a sampler pack of Twinings teas from the store yesterday. I am still in the teabag phase and just starting to branch out into different flavors and different blends.

I didn’t steep this for very long because I am still getting used to black teas and I didn’t want it to come out too bitter. But now I’m not too sure I steeped it long enough. I also didn’t put any milk or sugar in the tea. I want to cut back on my sugar intake so I am learning to drink my tea straight.

It is strange. It tastes weak but strong at the same time. It isn’t unpleasant. I have four more bags of this to experiment with. I think next time I’ll steep it for a little bit longer than what I did. It has been slowly cooling down and as it cools it starts to get a little bitter in the back of my throat. Well, I’m not sure if bitter is the right word. It feels like my tongue and back of my throat gets dry after I swallow and has a strange aftertaste. This is the taste I normally associate with black tea when it cools honestly. Though sometimes my green teas do the same thing.

Overall, I think I am starting to like the taste. It has the texture of tea but the flavor reminds me of a weak cup of my Dad’s decaf coffee. I’m not sure if I would drink this in the afternoon that much but I could see myself waking up with a cup of this.

I like Steepster, but I find that I come and go as I please. I might spend months on here and then disappear for no apparent reason. It depends on how busy my life is.

I have been moving solidly into the loose leaf tea territory lately and loving it. I have a french press I like brewing my teas in and I have all of my teas straight with no additions the first time I try it.

I like to try everything and I am starting to like everything. I love black tea, green tea, white tea, oolong tea, yerba mate,and honeybush. I’m still not the biggest fan of roobios, but that is probably because I haven’t found the right brand yet.

If you are curious about more than just my tea selection, I am on multiple sites.
