drank Annamalais Fancy by THE O DOR
1905 tasting notes

I wasn’t keen on this tea the first time around so I decided to give it another shot before consigning it to the ‘Give Away’ pile.

I picked up a bit of a honey/molasses scent when the tea was steeping, which was interesting. There’s a bit of the same note in the flavour aswell, particularly when the tea is hot. I’m still getting a very faint floral note but oddly enough at the very beginning of each sip I’m getting a touch of something cool and mint-like. But as the tea cools instead of getting sweet like most oolong this one gets an almost darjeeling-like muscatl quality and isn’t really all the pleasent to drink.

So I might keep this one around for a bit and maybe experiment with the steeping time and such.

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.
