60
drank Earl Grey by T2
6 tasting notes

I arrived an hour early to university today as unknowingly I did not have a class. So turning misfortune into opportunity I decoded to have my first cup of the day. I walked into a new coffee and tea shop that has just opened to see what they offer, teas by T2 it seems. Bother.

None the less I place my order for Earl Grey and despite the fact it is dispensed on a paper cup I take a seat in their comfy seats. Now the tea. After what could only have been 60 seconds the tea is already jet black and although risking biting mh mouth I taste it and no flavourhas yet been imbued in the liqour. I smell burgamot but that’s it. A little citrus here and there but other than an overly malty back note reminicent of every cheap tea I might as well have ordered the dish water.

Well atleast there’s hope for the day.

Preparation

Colour isn’t actually a factor in the strength of a tea, rather the amount of poleyphenols (tannins) which have been released into the water. Next time try infusing for a little longer and go by scent and taste rather than by colour. :-)
