Recent Tasting Notes
Casey picked this as the tea we were going to drink tonight. In the first steeping I could smell and taste coffee, pipe tobacco, caramel and cinnamon. There was also a bit of rum raisin. As I am writing this, I’m thinking that it is sounding much better than it actually is! It is smooth going down, leaves a dusty texture in my mouth. Casey is noticing a smokiness on the second steeping. I can detect the aroma of burnt sugar. The flaw in this tea is that the beautiful aroma does not match the taste. The taste is not sweet or complex, it is slightly bitter and flat.
