Oh man, I cannot control myself when it comes to milk teas. I had this one again today. This morning before I left the apartment, I steeped this hot in my travel mug, then stuck the whole thing (mug + tea bag) into the fridge to continue to sit and cool down. Fast forward about 10 hours later, and I’m drinking a nicely refreshing cold milk tea. I just wanted to add that letting it steep for so long actually brought out a teensy bit of smokiness in addition to the roastiness. I guess smoky and roasty can go hand in hand, but I tend to lean heavily toward roasty and away from smoky. The smoky flavor was definitely not strong enough to put me off the tea, but it was just an interesting find.
Edit: I just realized I started my other tasting note on this tea with “Oh man” as well. I didn’t know that I said that so much, haha.
