Another share from TeaEqualsBliss – thank you!
The smell while brewing makes me think of barley. The pieces are tiny – BP I’m guessing stands for broken pekoe? – so I did a short steep time. I also added sugar and half & half out of habit. Oops. Oh well.
The taste is pretty surprising. Because the pieces are so small, I anticipated something with a bit of an edge, and maybe it does have it and the additives are hiding it, but it doesn’t seem like it at all. It’s odd though because the taste is both mild and bold. Thin, maybe? But flavorful? Something. And I can’t quite peg the taste – it doesn’t seem fruity or malty. It seems more grain-like. Whatever it is, it makes it fairly unique – and pretty tasty!
