A tea bag for wet morning. There was a rain finally in the evening and night, so everything is wet. I was really sleepy too, so I just picked some tea bag. Apparently last one I had of this one thus SIPDOWN. I didn´t kenw I had even something last.
Anyway, they suggest 3-5 minutes brew and I did like two and half. I don´t like really strong black teas and I found out making tea steep half of suggested time works usually really well.
Hmm, tea itself is dark brown and cloudy. I used to think that Basilur is one of the better brands. Yup, in matter of tea bag certainly is.
As it is past BB (8 months), opened as I needed the tea bag envelope to collection, so no aroma at all. Or slighlty tea-ish, like bit bland English breakfast. No weird aroma notes.
In taste it was quite similar, quite weak – yet noticable calssic tea bag black tea flavour with little notes of toffee and red grapes. But grapes were really weak. Not malty at all.
It is not a bad example of tea, certainly good for this morning – but fresher it is certainly better (I recall that grapes were more present in taste).
Have a great day everyone!
