242 Tasting Notes
Ok, yes, I’m running through my library of tea. This is something completely different from my usual fare. 1 1/2 teaspoons in a 2 cup pot. Steeped 3-4 minutes. Light straw color. Fresh mowed grass smell. Light, tannic, cleansing in the mouth. Best drank hot…as it cools the tannins seem to become overwhelming. A little reheat and its good to go.
1 teaspoon (as opposed to tsp) about 4 minutes in moderately hot water. Brews dark and flavorful. Slightly tannic…probably should have taken it out a little past 3 minutes. A bit heavy in the mouth (not bad, just different than say…a Ceylon), but the flavor last a good 30+ seconds after swallowing. Think Irish/Scottish breakfast teas. (Edit: don’t let this one go cold…not as good)
