I decided to go for another Golden Moon sample this morning, and the description of this one sounded good to me.
The leaves smell earthy, maaaaybe with a floral hint in there. But pretty much just your basic earthy smell.
Brewed, I smell maybe a nutty hint.
The taste is really nice! It’s smooth, which I always like. It’s definitely got some depth. Unfortunately, my tastes aren’t educated to the point where I could tell you what I’m tasting. All I can tell you is that I like it!
I am getting a tiny hint of bakeyness to it, to the point of it reminding me of Thomas Sampson, even though that’s an Assam, and this is a Ceylon. Hmm. Maybe I just don’t know what I’m talking about. :P
Now that it’s cooled a bit, though, I am getting that tiny hint of ripe berries that the description speaks of.
All in all, this really is a very tasty tea! :)
