178 tasting notes

From the LiberTEAS sampler I bought a while back

This is a truly delightful tea…it smells earthy and calm; one taste in and there are all these brown and woodsy notes with a great silky mouthfeel that just makes it a pleasure to drink.

Flavour-wise I pick up on some molasses-sweet notes (enhanced by the tsp of honey I poured in, I’m sure) on top of a set of flavours that make me think of stacks of seasoned firewood and the loamy smell of leaves in the forest in the fall. I grew up in Appalachia, so this is an amazingly comforting taste that hearkens back to childhood days spent on the mountain.

Overall, though, this tea is very…brown, in an earthy (and quite good) way. I’d drink it again, maybe with a little milk or something next time – I’d like to see the different permutations of this flavour profile.

Overstressed aspiring model…tea is what gets me moving in the mornings, calms me down at night and fills all the moments in-between.

I’m still in the everything is delicious and I want to drink it all phase of my exploration, so I’m open to swaps, TTBs and trying new things. (with the exception of jasmine…that icky stuff tastes like soap)

My cupboard is things I have and am willing to swap (either I didn’t like them that much or I have a lot of them) and my wishlist is mostly things I’ve tasted and want to buy or swap for in the future.
