1908 tasting notes

Yup, another one out of the Travelling Teabox – at this rate it’ll take me forever to go through it. :D

As it turns out it’s not super pear-y; I think pear is another one of those flavours that is difficult to replicate, as I have yet to find a company who has it spot-on. This tea takes a decent stab at it, however. It’s delicately fruity without tasting artificial and there are vague pear notes, although in general I gotta say that it’s more of an indistinct fruit flavour than anything else. The green tea base is decent as well; not too bitter, and subtle enough so that it acts as an accessory to the fruit flavours rather than overwhelming them.

It yields a resteep that isn’t weak or watery, which is a point in its favor – lots of teas are great tasting for the first round but the resteep is total fail.

Keeping this one. :D

Bio

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.
