Hello everyone! I’m sad that I’ve been missing quite a bit the past few months. I think that part of my semi-tea absence was due to the fact that I’ve been struggling with who knows what, and it really messed with my ability to taste/smell. I’m just barely starting to feel a bit better.
This tea is one that I hid in the back of my cupboard so I wouldn’t drink it all right away! It smells heavenly and I’ve enjoyed all of my cups of it so far. It works really well as short steeps and delivers a ton of flavor. (I’ll be updating this as I brew)
10sec: Very light liquor, it smells of bread and light rocks. Tastes of the same, plus a slight, honey tasting sweetness.
12sec: I’m thinking I should have done a rinse, because this cup was much fuller tasting than the last. Very bright notes of wheat, honey, stone, warmed sugar.
13sec: The liquor is much more yellow this steep. The leaves are so deeply olive green and fully unfurled. Much of the same flavor/smell as the last steep.
15sec: Really weak compared to the other two steeps. Maybe this is me just being unable to smell/taste? :(
