6 Tasting Notes View all

From SpecialTeas

Slightly fuller bodied than the No. 217 Bargang, this Harmutty is a solid broken-leaf Assam at an exceptional price. While it is complex enough to be a good self-standing tea, the addition of a splash of milk brings out a subtle honey flavor.

The sweetness I mentioned before is proving to be prevalent in subsequent steeps. I think there’s something else there, but I can’t place it. It isn’t nearly as interesting as the first steep, but not at all unpleasant. I guess this is why re-steeping black teas isn’t really recommended…But you know, I’m cheap and admit that freely!

Well it’s not unusual for Assams to have a malty sort of taste to them.

Yeah, I know about maltiness, but I really only have a faint idea of what malty is supposed to taste like. I’ve had tea before that’s described as “malty”, but I’m unsophisticated and can’t pick out that specific quality. I really have to stop myself from saying things like “oh, you know, it’s like that one thing in the other thing i drank!”. Yay for my vocabulary!

Hee. That’s how I am with a lot of tea. The more I drink things and the more I’m on here, the more I can start to pick things out. Just so you have a base of comparison, if you’ve ever had Whoppers, those are malted. It’s also a flavoring used in milk shakes sometimes. I find it kiiind of similar to caramel, but saltier? And slightly flatter as opposed to rich.

@takgoti: That description really helped me figure out what the heck malty tastes like. I totally get the salty caramel but flatter. Thanks!

Hyrulehippie

That helps so much. I think i may have had whoppers once, and had a vague idea of what malty tastes like….but saltier, flatter caramel makes it so much easier!

Even though I’ve been “into” tea for at least a year or two (and a lifelong tea drinker) I never really had a chance to be able to discuss things like this. Having input from many people is really helpful for me.

takgoti

Haha, I do what I can.

@Hyrulehippie That is exactly why I love steepster. The amount of mileage that I’ve gotten out of it in terms of knowledge and trying things I never even knew existed previously is already staggering.

Stomach’s a bit upset this morning, so I’m toning this down with some Coffeemate Sweet Italian Creme creamer, which is just about the only thing I’ll put in my tea anymore. So goood.
