Sipdown 100-2021
Woot! Finally got to my 100th sipdown for the year. I was hoping to be to this point about a month ago, but better late than never.
This was a generous share from Dustin, thank you!
It smells super smoky. Like BBQ smoky. However, the smoky flavor is much more muted than I would have assumed. It’s still quite strong, but not as intense as the scent would lead one to believe. Other than the smokiness, I’m getting a bit of…vanilla? Something soft and sweet. I can’t really make the flavors out over the smoke.

I became obsessed with the world of tea through DavidsTea years ago. I love to try new brands, so I’m constantly on the look out for new-to-me companies.

I mainly brew western style.I like my tea extremely strong, so I tend to use wayyyyy more dry leaf than suggested.
