3 Tasting Notes

drank Tiger Monk by Temple Road
3 tasting notes

I’m going to assume that this tea is the same one that I got as a sample, “Tiger Monk Premium Tea.”

Leaves are rolled up gunpowder-style, unfurl to half finished origami pieces, dark moss color. The smell that came out as it was steeping was more like fresh ground coffee and even though I don’t like coffee, the scent was pleasing. Once it was done steeping, the taste was strange, the wheat more apparent than the wood or malt. It has a smooth body though, similar to how a dark chocolate bar becomes once its melted in the mouth, enjoyed every sip and was already steeping my second cup.

Flavors: Malt, Wood

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 6 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 2 OZ / 59 ML

The moment I took in the aroma, it reminded me of vegetable stock, if it were only made of cabbage, a subtle vegetable taste. After a few re-steepings, taste did improve, still full but the taste is now a pleasurable hint to be acquainted with.

Often when I have Jasmine tea, usually from a restaurant, it comes out like I’m drinking hot perfume. With this tea though, the aroma dances in light steps in my mouth, like an expert ballerina. I have also shared the tea with others and they say it does taste like perfume, but they say it with a surprised glee on their face.
