39 Tasting Notes
Resteep. I may fall asleep. This tea is very soothing for me.
1 packet of stevia and it’s like vacation in a cup. Brewed in a Teavana Perfect Teamaker.
Good as always. My middle of the day pick-me-up. Teavana Perfect Teamaker.
Even with no decaf-ing, and a 3 min steep at 195F, I’m still not thrilled. Less astringent this time, but it’s just very bland for a flavored black tea.
30 second decaffeination rinse. First sip way more astringent than I expected. Added a little half & half and 1 packet of stevia, still not thrilled. I’m going to try again tomorrow morning and see how the flavor is with no decaf time, and a 3 minute steep.
Breakfast again. Half & Half and 1 stevia packet. Brewed in a Teavana Perfect Teamaker.
Soft floral notes, with a warm undertone. Nice mid fermented oolong. A pinch of sugar to bring out the floral more. Brewed in a Teavana Perfect Teamaker(for shame, I know better). I should have used my kyusu, or at least my yixing.
My go to morning tea. Half & Half and sugar, and all is right in the world. Brewed in a Teavana Perfect Teamaker(plastic).
The second cup yields a much more complex flavor than the first. Slightly floral and vegetal. Brewed in a somayaki kyusu.
