From the 2016 Dark Matter series.
I’ve been playing video games all weekend since I’ve caught up on homework, so I was trying to avoid “serious” tea sessions. However, after reading a few reviews, I figured it’d be time to try this. Unfortunately, I hadn’t written much while giving it a go. I was most likely preoccupied this afternoon when drinking it.
1st steep: Not much happening. Very light nutty/roasted note. Heat water to 195F instead of 175F (I must’ve thought, “Smells like Genmaicha, so I must brew it at a lower temperature”).
2nd Steep: Really tasting that oolong base. A little bite of sesame seed laced with roasted honey (?).3rd steep: Really getting into the flavor. Reminds me of a Genmaicha, but with the roasted Oolong notes that really bring out the straw and sesame notes. Very sweet roasted oolong notes.
That’s all I had written. So, that’s all I’ll write now.
P.S. I had finally beaten Uncharted 2 yesterday. I must say that this game series is quite enjoyable.
Flavors: Honey, Roasted, Straw
