1792 tasting notes

Thank you for this rarity, MissB! Right off the bat, I’m going to agree with the description that this is très végétal, although I do not think that this resembles corn in any way. It’s too bitter and green to be corn. It’s more akin to bitter greens. Swiss chard maybe? It’s like steamed salad comprising bitter vegetables. It reminds me of the salad that my Uncle and Aunt served at their wedding many moons ago when I was still just a kid. I have no idea what was in it, but it had a mixture of sour and bitter leaves together with what I thought at the time was normal lettuce. I have no idea what was in there. But this reminds me of those bitter notes.

Yeah yeah, I need to educate myself on bitter greens. I always eye them at the grocery store, hoping to pick some up, but they’re always buggy and not in good condition. So for now, I’ll just go ahead and say this is steamed Swiss Chard in a mug.
