110 tasting notes

Sometimes I don’t want my palate challenged, or a finicky steeping ritual, or a lot of nuance. Sometimes, I just want a really good, satisfying cup of tea. Now, please.

This one has a deep tea perfume, a dark color that promises and delivers a strong tannic flavor. Tannic meaning it tastes like tea – good, honest, no fussiness about it tea. I wrap my hands around my mug and inhale deeply before each sip. Ahhh – tea.

Wait, the pot is empty already?!!

“Why is the tea always gone?” ;) Just out of question do you get the supposed ‘peppery’ taste with this tea?

There is a puckery feeling in my mouth after drinking a cup of this tea, probably from the tannins, and I think that sensation plus the strong dark flavor may be what folks are detecting as “peppery.” As in black pepper, not chili pepper.
