100th Tasting Note!!!
I had been saving this tea for a time I could sit down and really enjoy each steeping. But finding those windows with 3 kids running around isn’t always easy. But then, while cleaning the kitchen today, I realized that cleaning the kitchen was the perfect time to drink it. It’s a crappy task, but optimal for drinking small amounts of tea at a time. And makes a crappy job way more fun!
I’ve been looking forward to this as the reviews make this sound super roasty and delicious. And it is! I got about 5 steeps that were really roast-a-licous, but then the roast flavor faded quickly. I didn’t actually love the resulting flavor. Seemed a little thin or something. But I did love the beginning steeps.
I also loved how it came in a little package that I could just dump in my gaiwain. No worrying about getting the optimal amount. I wonder what it would be like western style.
