61 tasting notes

I found this tea shop at the base of the Spanish steps in Rome. The dry tea looks like a mix of black teas including some assam. The dry leaves smell a bit fruity and like sun-warmed tobacco. The wt leaves still smell fruity and like buttered squash? The brew is an orangy/caramel color. The flavor is similar a little fruity, a little buttery, a bit vegetal. It is a very tea overall.

Grew up in Texas, lived and worked in Australia and New Zealand for a year. Now I am back stateside and living in Oregon. I drink most any kind of tea but blacks are my favorites.

“Tea is the taste of my land: it is bitter and warm, strong, and sharp with memory. It tastes of longing. It tastes of the distance between where you are and where you come from. Also it vanishes—the taste of it vanishes from your tongue while your lips are still hot from the cup. It disappears, like plantations stretching up into the mist.” Little Bee (Chris Cleave)
