“What are you brewing that late (8 pm)?” my dad asked me.
“A black tea.” I have answered
“A black, you don’t plan going to bed?”
“It’s decaffeined. I don’t know, nor want to know how it’s made. They write they used ethyl acetate.”
“Oh… chemical. I wouldn’t drink that.”
“I will give it a try.”
It steeps super fast. I used boiling water and after two minutes it seems being brewed completely. It’s OP? Nah, it’s fannings. Just a dust. One of the smallest particles in. Not really looking forward.
Brew is copper. Pretty much common descriptor of blacks. But that smell. Blergh. Super tannic and somehow chemical as well. Burnt notes as well. Like the tea “leaves” were put in fire and took away. Not smoky!
The taste is very tannic (oh, how far-sighted doing short steep!) and pretty much bland. Pretty much expected. There isn’t autumn leaf pile note :D
Overall; glad to have another tea bag in collection. Tea is okay considering caffeine-free, but I will rather drink some fruit/rooibos blends than DECAF tea.
