240 tasting notes

5g in 500mL tea thermos, grandpa style. Feel conflicted about this one. Has much more thickness and sweetness than ‘16 Brown Sugar, but the energy is incredibly jittery. Flavors are more in line with my tastes, with lots of fall leaf litter, paper, and toasted brown sugars. It does start out a fair bit astringent, as though some portion of the blend has been lightly fermented. The body buzz is almost hard to contain, as it’s made me very jittery. The astringency on the forefront is a little off-putting, but there’s definitely some good stuff here.

Flavors: Autumn Leaf Pile, Brown Sugar, Toasty

Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 5 g 17 OZ / 500 ML
