Tomorrow another exam. Last chance or next year. Studying axes and engines and what the… is that in cars. Very useful subject for logistics. (Irony over)
10 seconds rinse.
The rinse is quite sweet and no astringency at all! Rather mellow, smooth and fruity taste.
Time: 20 seconds.
I know it is longer than usual. I was bit distracted. Now it is bit bitter, but not overwhelming, rather adding something interesting to the taste.
Time: 20 seconds again
As I liked previous steep, I decided to make another one with same time. It should be bit more mellow, so we will see. In aroma it is still quite fruity with combination of floral.
And in taste it is same. Are my taste buds so dead? I thought I started to recognize different flavours even in those teas, but recently I think all is same as scents. If I can recognize that fruit. Apricot maybe? Just a little though.
Time: 30 seconds
I need to eat something. I hope we have something not very aromatic. Enjoyable steep. Bit less floral, still quite fruity.
Time: 35 seconds.
I really like the fruity line of this tea. It makes it very enjoyable, mouthwatering. I did not notice any smoke not tobbaco notes. Maybe I just do not know how they taste (smell) like?
Time: 45 seconds
This is my cup of tea. Fruity and then a little astringency come. I like it, because it is not plain.
Time: 50 seconds
I should rather go sleep early today, but…
Nevermind. Astringency is stronger, bit loosing fruity sweetness. Kind of drying too.
Time: 1 minute
Now I noticed it tasted like a 1st flush of Darjeeling. You know, the floarity of it, bit of malty. Quite a drying, not much fruity.
Time: 90 seconds.
Last one. Long one.
And not bad one. It is actually milder than I expected.
