28 tasting notes

This tea smelt wonderfully toasty, and looked like hay in my cup while brewing. Only a light toasting remains in the very smooth cup of tea with walnut and salty undertones. One of my favorites from Select so far!

I started drinking more tea about 5 years ago when I found that even my half -caf coffee was making me jittery and then sleepy after the caffeine wore off. While I started out with mostly Teavana, but soon expanded my tea cupboard to include lapsang souchon, pu-erh, and other strong black teas. I do enjoy oolongs, green, and other teas, as well as a nice tisane for an evening cuppa.

I love trying new tea in new places, if you see something in my cupboard you want to try, hit me up for a swap!
