Fannings? More like ctc! phew, that is what I was hoping for.
My cup was nice and dark. Inky black. And full of depth! Wouldn’t wanna go swimming in that… (what dark creatures lie beneath?!)
It tasted very earthy, mossy, and a little like soil… err, in a good way. Trust me, it was pleasant even if it doesn’t sound as if it was! Next time, I’ll do a fast rinse. I didn’t this time because I was worried about losing the tiny little particles but there was a teeny tiny bit of fishiness so I’ll see if there is a big difference in quality between my rinse vs non-rinse experiences.
Second steep was more like a light coffee. Oh how I miss coffee. Could this be a suitable alternative? I think so.
Third steep edged more into the bready/vanilla zone. I didn’t have time for more but I can see where it was going anyhow.
