Another hobby of mine is homebrewing beer. The first thing that struck me about this tea was the strong resemblance to a light wort which is the steeping water from the grain before hops, yeast, and fermentation transform it into beer. In this tea, I get a buttery biscuity flavor that transforms into a tangy slightly tart lingering finish. There is some present, but not overpowering roasty notes that fade in subsequent steepings. I get a light astringency that helps cut through the creamy butter. The liquid is fairly thick and coats my mouth. I’m on the third or fourth steeping and expect to get a few more.
