drank Good Evening by T2
60 tasting notes

I found the T2 shop while I was in Brisbane for the day. The box recommends 2 tsp per medium teapot and to brew 2-4 min at 100 C. The dry leaves are mixture of darker CTC leaves and some lighter larger leaves. The dry smell is of blended black tea, I couldn’t really pick out any specific scents. The wet leaves aren’t that different. I have brewed this one 3 or 4 times now cutting back on the brew time, tea amount and water temp. There is too heavy an astrigency from the assam in the blend for me for a higher temp or longer brew time. After all the experimentation, I am left with an adequate tea. It is fine but doesn’t have enough complexity to elevate it above most bagged teas from the grocery.

Bio

Grew up in Texas, lived and worked in Australia and New Zealand for a year. Now I am back stateside and living in Oregon. I drink most any kind of tea but blacks are my favorites.

“Tea is the taste of my land: it is bitter and warm, strong, and sharp with memory. It tastes of longing. It tastes of the distance between where you are and where you come from. Also it vanishes—the taste of it vanishes from your tongue while your lips are still hot from the cup. It disappears, like plantations stretching up into the mist.” Little Bee (Chris Cleave)
