drank Earl Grey Sencha by Say Tea
477 tasting notes

Accidentally oversteeped. Was aiming for a minute thirty, and didn’t realise my timer didn’t work until a few minutes later. I also brewed it too hot, so this cup should have been a total failure – but it wasn’t! Okay, the sencha was a little burnt so it definitely tasted grassy, but there was a nice strong smoky bergamot note. I think I prefer gunpowder over sencha in general, so will have to have another cup (properly brewed) before I make a stash-enhancement decision.

Mmmm. Tea. I have become a believer.

I like oolongs and greens, and dark smoky flavours. And Earl Greys. All the Earl Greys. I have bent my nerd powers to learning as much as I can about tea and tea culture. I have started to ramble about tea.

Tea. Mmmm.
