My third and last leaf tea ordered at Carstensens.
I know Chinese teas, Indian teas, Kenyan teas, Japanese teas, but I’ve never had the chance to drink a Georgian tea before. Yes, they had used to be available sometimes in the communist Poland, but I had been too young back then, so I didn’t hesitate after I came across it at Carstensens.
The aroma is not very strong, round, mellow, slightly earthy.
As well as the taste. It is a very mellow drinking experience, with only low tannins, which surprises me a little, because somehow I expected something a bit harsher, a bit more feisty. I don’t know why, I just did.
But that doesn’t mean that it’s a bad tea, far from it. Next time I’ll try to brew it stronger, to bring out more of it, but I’m surely going to drink it with pleasure.
Flavors: Earth, Round, Smooth
