Recent Tasting Notes
Received from postcrossing from Ukraine. Sender claims it is okay tea, good for bagged, but that she prefers loose leaf one. I was so happy to hear something about the tea from another tea lover!
And I have to agree completely. It smells bit roasty, but actually it is hidden florals. Steeped for 4 minutes, 90°C water (was boiling about two minutes before I filled the mug). After steeping it brought pretty nice aroma of florals again, not sure about the lilac they claim; but it was nice. Nice taste as well, but kinda vegetal for me and slight astringency as well. Bit mood boosting as well, could be little bit on oolong side, than green – if I do a blind tasting, I would think it is another good, but not great, green tea.
Song pairing: nothing actually, but listened to few Placebo songs, for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-JJAXwAaA2w
