1908 Tasting Notes
The tea it makes is pretty dark for a green tea, it tasted kinda grassy with a bit of astringent bitterness at the beginning. I’m not sure if the latter is because I steeped it too long (4 min) or if the water I used was too hot. This is another one I want to play around with before I can say if I like it or not, but as of right now I’m not really feeling the love.
The Lapsang Souchong mixed in gives it a hint of smokiness in its scent and taste but it’s not so overwhelming that the smoke is all you get. It tasted very smooth and it went very well with a bit of skim milk.
I tried it with boiling water this time instead of just steaming water and it brings out the ‘toasty’ notes in the tea’s description.
