60 Tasting Notes

I’ve been drinking this one most mornings. I just got a thermometer, so I’ll try some variations. I still can’t really taste the dried fruits (although they dominate the scent) so I’d like to try and see how long I can steep it without it getting bitter.

Hmm… I’m running out of cardamom pods and this tea really needs them.

Tastes like Earl Grey with a touch of honey, smells like a fruitcake.

Oops, walked away and it oversteeped. Darn.

For a tea bag, you can get quite a few brews out of this one.

What a cute little tea bag. Each individual foil wrapper contains a nylon pouch with tea inside it (and some outside, watch out). In contrast to to the Lapsang Souchong, this tea has almost no aroma at all. There is a very slight grass scent. The flavor is very mild, It seemed fairly difficult to over-steep.

Based on the smell, I was expecting this one to taste like bacon. The taste and smell are completely different. (Try holding your breath for a second while drinking.) Maybe next time I’ll add some salt.

I find it’s like liquid BBQ (ew), did you get the same impression?

I’ve never drank liquid BBQ so I’m not sure.

I enjoy Special Blend Tea with a couple of cardamom pods. It reminds me of the desserts at Chelokababi, which was just down the street (until we moved, sigh).

Before dabbling in tea, wait until it has cooled to 120º.
