200 Tasting Notes
When I tried a sample of this in the store I really liked it. Enough to bring home a tin of it. I couldn’t get it right at home. I always found it too tart, which I really don’t like in teas. After several brewing attempts, I had no luck, and tried it cold brewed. Still no luck – but my fault as I brewed too long and it became bitter as well. I was able to finally finish the tin, but will probably not buy again. This was just too tart for my liking.
I keep opening my tin and smelling the tea. I usually only do this with flavoured tea’s. This one smells ridiculously fresh. I wish I had bought more-this is gonna be done in a couple of days. I have to get more. Not only is the smell fresh, but the taste is also really fresh. The honey tones are evident, but I really appreciate those fresh notes in this tea.
This tea, for me, was ok. I really enjoyed the aroma and taste of the toasted rice, but I got this after taste that I did not like, something along the lines of seaweed, algae, marine water….I had to play around with the amount of tea leaves vs water, and I found that less leaves and more water seemed to suit my palate.
