Another that I had over my vacation on a virtual tea hangout. I’ve not tried the first Bosch before, from years back, but I know it’s very well loved so I simply had to try this one. I didn’t take notes since I was focused on conversation, but I really enjoyed it. I didn’t feel like there was much going on in terms of flavour – the steeps were rather soft in taste but with a more “grizzly” and hearty texture. As I sipped over the course of the six or seven steeps before the leaf was spent, I noticed that I started to feel very calm and relaxed.
It was a really interesting session for me as someone who doesn’t tend to focus much on the “body feeling” of tea – I put a lot of weight on taste and then just a little on texture. That makes sense, I guess, because professionally taste is just a huge part of my job. I just really appreciated how this one really made me stop and take notice of some of the things that I don’t typically fixate on in my session.
