5059 Tasting Notes
another sipdown for the day….there’s hope of getting back to where i started on friday i think? the aroma of this one is malty and cocoa-ey. drinking this one, it’s your typical roasty, dark oolong. There’s none of that flavour that i dislike from roasty oolongs. I think i’ll enjoy the other steepings of this one as well.
mmmm i like this one! even though it has a little astringency to it, it’s not unpleasant. I could get behind drinking this one on a more regular basis if i needed a darjeeling to add to the rotation. I still think that i’d rather drink a straight up black tea most days though.
sipdown! i’m running behind with my tasting notes…“early” night testing for work and now i have additional testing to do. I’ve been drinking a bunch of teas this morning but i haven’t had a second to start logging them. this was one of my earliest teas. An assam that is bold, malty but also fruity and sweet.
