307 Tasting Notes
Today this tea tasted significantly different for me. I don’t know if I got the ratio just right or what, but it decreased my enjoyment of this tea.
5.9g, 180F, 100 ml teapot, mostly western
fruity, citrus, almost hoppy, make that definitely hoppy – that IPA finish. I don’t like IPAs. The finish downgrades my rating of this tea. Pretty much destroyed my enjoyment. :(
Flavors: Citrus, Fruity, Hops
Dry leaf smells like plum/raisin
200F, 4 min western
Tastes sweet and raisin. Pretty soft and more a texture than a taste. It gets more citrus as it cools. Decided to take this one to work as I needed a real tea there. It’s not special enough to keep it at home.
Flavors: Plums, Raisins, Sweet
I think this is the tea I have. Received in trade from Daylon R Thomas
200F, 1 min, western, backlog
Sweet and malty, smooth and thick, roasted note in background.
My stomach was a little weird after drinking this tea, so I didn’t continue much past two steeps. I have more so I’ll eventually try it again to see if I have the same reaction.
Flavors: Malt, Roasted, Smooth, Sweet, Thick
