drank Bay of Bengal by Oteao
93 tasting notes

(…funny. I just declared my hatred of Ceylon tea some minutes ago and then I grabbed a random bag of tea from Thomas package. And this was it: A Ceylon)

Well for starters, the leafs are different.
Long and thin. Brown and green.

The liquid is brown-ish and very clear/transparent. It smells like a ceylon:
Heavy aromatic smell with a hint of… oolong smell. Does that make sense? Oolong has a sour smell to it, does it not?

It taste like ceylon when it hit the tongue, but as as it rolls down the notes becomes very oolong.

I am confused but also pleased.

Bio

Many things can be said about me, but I rather not go into details… Other than the facts that: Yes, I am from Greenland (Yeah, it’s totaly awesome!) and I love my books, cats and tea.

I love all kinds of tea, but must confess a greater love towards the Da Hong Pao and a deep hatred for Ceylon and Pickwick. (Yes, I am aware that Ceylon is area). Sorry, It’s not them, it’s me.
Other than that I love the greens, the whites and the blacks (and all of the things in the middle) evenly.

Rating system – I love the smileyrate here on steepster, so I’ll just follow that. That’s 1 point for the worst tea in the history of man, and 100 point for some of the best tea… note that I usually rate high because I am a optimist and love all things tea.
