31 tasting notes

Steeping this tea for about 45 seconds, I discerned a honey-like aroma with a similarly sweet, but weak, taste. I steeped for 60 seconds each for two subsequent steepings and it became astringent and bitter. On the fourth steeping, again at 60 seconds, it was nearly flavourless. I have tried it a number of times and have always been dissatisfied, finding it either bitter or watery, with no discoverable sweet spot.

Mr Steep likes tea plain, or variously with lemon, fruit juice, honey, spices, cow’s milk or soy milk, as appropriate.

Mr Steep avoids flavoured teas: flavouring rarely makes something out of nothing.

Mr Steep applies this philosophy to good coffee, too.
