drank Earl Grey by Twinings
224 tasting notes

Start note: this post is mostly about another tea…

Earl Gray is my first cup this morning. Made it stronger in a small cup. I never tasted so much bergamot in it. Interesting. Suites me better these days than when i started drinking it…

However started the tasting note for another tea. I just borrowed a teaspoon from a colegue on work. Yunnan. My first. He bought it in a pharmacy. So idk how to even name it. Thats why its in this log. I’m really curious. This will be my first pure green tea. But i got plenty more coming my way.

Leaves are longer and look better than any of the blends i have in my current stash. Says on the bag its green yunnan even tho the leaves are quite darkish.

Mmmm i like the smell of the leaves i just took out of the tea. Promissing :D
Color is bright yellowish green. Smell reminds me of my favorite silver needle. Taste too. It has that what i call it nutty feel about it (kinda greasy like sunflower seeds). Tastes quite greasy and smooth. Yummy. Very good. I kinda really really like this. OMG im discovering pure green yummy teas. W00t!

I feel bad for this one cuz it doesnt have it’s place in my cupboard. I just might have to go buy a bag ;) Sigh…

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…
