Ack! I’m the first person to write a tasting note for this tea! Oh the humanity! Words cannot describe how I have no words to describe tea without prompting!
I quite enjoyed this tea. It seems to be a good afternoon tea. It isn’t full and dark-tasting like an assam. It tasted clean, if that makes sense. Pure tea. It wasn’t astringent, and had a smooth mouth-feel, but not heavy. I think I’ll enjoy another cup of it tomorrow afternoon, and pay closer attention (I was, truth be told, rather distracted today with a holiday party and work and such). It still tasted good even after it had completely cooled. I bet it would taste lovely iced.
I’m beginning to think that while I enjoy flavored teas, my heart really belongs to straight tea, maybe with some jasmine thrown in for good measure. I think I get more out of them simply because I’m not struggling so much to taste the flavor that I think I should taste. Food (or drink) for thought, I suppose.
Steeped for three minutes at boiling, as per instructions.
