drank Iron Goddess of Mercy by Rishi Tea
521 tasting notes

Long time no see Steepster! To be honest, this is only my 2nd cup this week. I was very very sick and couldn’t even smell tea without getting a little woozy. I picked this up at a local shop yesterday after looking through some pretty awesome cheeses.
This is my second look into Iron Goddess; my first being from Chinese Tea Shop.
I have to say the overall smell of the dry leaf on this one is less floral and far more barley or some kind of grain. I think that this was the small downside to this one. I find myself surprisingly drawn to the more floral of the two.
The liquor is very smooth with some very creamy notes that are highly satisfying. I find that this is a more vegetal offering of Iron Goddess. I think I will play with steep times some more to find that proverbial sweet spot. Until next time, I hope everyone is doing well!
