573 Tasting Notes
Dull sweetness reminiscent taste of licorice and sometimes chamomile. Mineral and almost spicy flavour. I am detecting the typical white (what I call) swampy note. I was served this at PekoeTea and was presently surprised to discover that the tea in my pot (with free-floating tea leaves) did well even past the initial 3 minute infusion. It also held up well to subsequent infusions- about 2 re-infusions but I feel as if it could have taken more.
Flavors: Licorice, Mineral, Spicy, Sweet
This tea is missing the tartness I expect when I taste lime. It leaves everything feeling rather flat. The black tea is a smooth base with only a twinge of bitterness near the end of the sip. The lime flavour is dull- more of a present aroma than a full flavour. However, it does bring the attention to the nice black base

I tried to be very conservative with brewing this tea as it seemed like it might be bitter. I can definitely taste the rich, malty tones but there is still quite a bit of bitterness. I might try using less dry leaf next time.

Dry leaf has a strong floral/vegetal aroma.
Brewed tea has a strong vegetal aroma.
Flavour is mostly vegetal with a clean sugary fruity (cantaloupe) finish). Buttery notes in aftertaste. Thick mouthfeel with a very satisfying savoury note. As the tea cools, I am detecting a mild smoky note in the back of the throat- somewhat like charred asparagus.
Flavors: Cantaloupe, Fruity, Spinach
Very green tasting. A bit of a minty tone. Strong note of bean. Milk creaminess. Medium thickness mouthfeel. Milky taste and texture near the end of the sip. Orchid floral note. Mild chamomile sweetness. More of the milky flavour comes out as the tea cools.
Flavors: Beany, Creamy, Floral, Milk, Mint, Orchid
