493 Tasting Notes
sample. i was curious how Vietnamese tea taste like. this one is nice mellow sweet and a little malty. if it would be blind testing i would say its blend of Assam and Dargeeling, but very muted. maybe if i let it steep longer it would be more flavorful but i didnt want to face bitter notes. i added condensed milk to the second cup and it was lovely dessert.
dry leaves smell like dried persimmon. gaiwan quick rinse, 5 sec steeps. im afraid if it will go bitter. it does develop orchid notes, creamy. so far its delicious,smooth and sweet. im on my 3rd steep
Later on I decided to add tiny drop of agave syrup. Usually I don’t add any thing to my tea. It transformed into raw juicy sweet orange pepper
