15 tasting notes

I’m not too good at writing these tasting notes, as I find myself rather intimidated by everyone else’s tea erudition — so I guess I’ll just take the redneck route…

This was yummy-smelling right out of the package, if a bit strongly of black tea — which, of course, is what it is. (The art alone on those packages is drool-inducing!) Unsweetened the tea was okay; I could definitely taste the coconut — but with a li’l bit of Coffee-Mate French Vanilla it was truly dessert.

I only used a heaping teaspoon for a 12-oz. cup and the second steep was, as expected, rather light. Next time I’ll use more tea. I’m still getting the hang of the steep time vs. amount of leaf thing.

Your tasting note looks good to me. I’m also just learning. I’ve found that Steepster seems to be filled with wonderful people who are supportive of all levels of learning on the tea journey. Happy sipping :D

LOL. I like how you’re like “Oh I’m not fancy” and then “Oh look, I’m using a big word like ‘erudition’”..

Hehe, don’t worry about being fancy with tea notes. The nice thing about steepster is that you get perspectives from all types :)

Profile

Bio

Artist, musician, homemaker.

Long-time haphazard tea drinker who’s gradually becoming more knowledgeable and better focused on tea’s subtleties and complexities.

Favorite teas are pu-erh, flavored blacks and simple unadorned greens. Also have a fetish for sweet, flavored matcha lattes. I’ve seldom tasted a tea I couldn’t drink and will try pretty much anything at least once.

Not big on ceremony, my teaware of choice is a large, lidded infuser in a large glass mug. Not very exotic, but it gets the job done.

SO happy to have found this group!
