Strong earthy scent that reminds me of a walk through an old growth forest – earthy, damp, woody, and even a little mossy.
The flavor is earthy, sweet (a deep, caramel-y note in this tea that I quite enjoy!) Soothing and contemplative, this tea.
I think I may be acquiring a taste for this…
A slightly later harvest, so liquor is darker and the flavors more pronounced. In spite of this, astringency is still quite low.
This stuff is kind of starting to grow on me. If I let it steep a bit longer you can taste a hint of something sweet but not enough that it lingers for long. Not as bad as it seems when I first got it.
On an off-note, my two boys are big enough to sit up in their Bumbo’s now which makes me excited. If you don’t know what a Bumbo is, then you need to look it up. Probably the single most awesome thing you can have as a parent. It’s just a chair, but you can move it anywhere for them to sit in or feed them in.
I’m still new to tea’s and find it hard to get leaf tea around here without ordering online, which I plan to do soon but for now I got this tea at the local Asian Grocer and its not too bad. I use 1 bag per small teacup and it doesn’t have a lot of flavor but you can tell its more than just hot water. It works for now.
This bloom was HUGE! One of the darkest liquids I have seen from a flowering tea. Smells a little like cinnamon – not hot ball cinnamon but an Indian Spice type cinnamon…and cereal and floral type scents.
Very Spring Flower Tasting and almost flour or oaty type undertones. The bloom was beautiful and the taste was a little different than I expected but ok.
