drank Pai Mu Tan by Luka Te m.m.
1904 tasting notes

Angrboda mentioned that she was picking up walnut notes in this tea and I can sort of see what she means, there’s definitely a nutty quality to it. But to me it doesn’t taste nearly as astringent as walnuts do (which I’m not a fan of anyway, so that’s a plus) and there’s also a bit of sweetness at the tail end of things.

I’m also getting some notes that I can only describe as ‘green’ in the middle of each sip. It’s not a grassy or strongly vegetale taste like green teas, it’s…argh I don’t know how to describe it. I think my tea vocabulary is a little lacking. :D

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
