70 tasting notes

Excellent timing, 52 teas! For my 42nd tasting note, I will honor Douglas Adams. He loved tea and wrote some instructions for Americans new to London, to brew a good pot of earl grey. And he wrote about the number 42 in the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy books. I’ve heard a lot about this tea from Sara, and my sampler just arrived today!

The leaf smells sweetly of coconut and bergamot.

Brewed, it smells very mild. The coconut and bergamot flavors have a nice, civilized balance going on. I don’t have a lot more to say about it, but it’s very pleasant and tasty. That mug of tea went down very quickly. I want to look up how to make a proper London Fog and try it that way next time.

Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus, Coconut, Sweet

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 2 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

Heh, I usually only make London Fogs with my… less reputable EGs. :-P Ones this good don’t need the milk, hahaha! (I’ve got a ton of Adagio EG I can spare if you’d like to learn, I make a pretty sweet London Fog…)

Oh, that’s the trick is it? :) This one worked pretty well in my attempt at a London Fog.

I have enjoyed various teas most of my life, but have recently started exploring higher-end teas. Still, plain houjicha (loose-leaf or bagged) makes me feel like I’m in Japan.
