224 tasting notes

Really looking forward to trying this one… First one I got delivered from outside of Croatia.
Gonna steep it for 7 minutes as most do. Ill try less some other time.

Color – very bright and clear. Just barely yellow.

Smell – the plant itself smells strong herbal but the filtered tea has almost no smell. The little something i am getting is very pleasant.

Taste – mmm wow interesting. i don’t even know how to describe this. starts with an acid but still delicate feeling in my mouth but then it reaches the back of my mouth and all the herbal flavors go wild. love the scent of air in my mouth and nose after taking a sip of this tea. and it lasts. oh its amazing and i don’t know how to put it in words. acid note, the sweet note, ant the very special yummy herbal note mix together in a feeling that lasts longer than normal after every sip. and its all together very delicate. absolutely love this tea :) my new number one…

oh and its better when i drink it really slow. let it be acid for a little while then let it reach the back of my mouth where it becomes great. reminds me a bit of some kind of nut or seeds i eat here and there. not sure what, maybe sunflower seeds, or pumpkin…

Preparation

Bio

born with a bit of a restless, curious and exploring spirit ;) love to travel and i do it a lot lately. enjoy good food and drinks. love trying out new stuff. just about to start exploring the world of teas and i’m really enthusiastic about it ;)

EDIT 4 months later:
still a n00b here but starting to get it ;) i try to buy loose tea but i got a lot of teabags too cuz it’s easier to find here. from not liking black tea ended up love it. green can be quite good too but waiting for more real ones to try. whites are sometimes awesome, sometimes not, rooibos and fruity blends are a good replacement for juices… and so on… still excited about every new tea… loving it more every day :D

since my favorite hobby is photography i take photos whenever something is interesting. including my tea making process…
