80

[Winter 2017 harvest]

It might be because it’s more than one year old by now, but the aroma of this tea is very weak. It does kind of make up for it in the aftertaste, which is strong and interesting.

The flavours are mostly vegetal with light bitterness in early steeps and floral notes developing in later ones. There are notes of grass, dandelion flowers and spinach. The aftertaste is sweet, spicy and very comforting, definitely the highlight of the session for me. It induces a somewhat tingling sensation in the throat. The liquor texture is between silky and creamy, but not very thick.

Even though it’s not a bad tea at all, I cannot recommend it because of the high price.

Wow – that is a good song. Haunting, in a beautiful way.

Agreed. Some of her other songs in queue were even better.

I also like some other songs a little bit more, but this one really surprised me live and ended up being the most memorable. The live version is great with some deep bass backbone.

Indeed nice song Togo! Tasting note as well; too bad it is so expensive tea.

Another Weyes Blood fan! I’m loving the new album. I just saw that video for that song the other day and it is so so good.

Bio

Currently, I am a PhD student at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Ontario. Apart from teas and mathematics, I enjoy sports and traveling, as well as music of all kinds.

I have been a fan of green tea for a while and only recently (in 2017) started exploring other kinds of tea in greater depth. I rarely drink blends or white tea and avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied. The one thing that I am currently missing in my collection are teas from India, in particular some Darjeelings.
