Day 1 – Siam Tea Advent
First Steep: 2 minutes
The resulting tea is cloudy, yellow with a sweet yet salty seaweed and lily scent.
The first sip reveals a light yet complex tea with notes similar to it’s raw form. I can detect seaweed, salt, sweet grass, vegetal broth and umami which lingers on the tongue in the after taste. It bares minimum astringency.
Half way down the cup there is some dryness coming into the after taste.
Second Steep: 1 minute
Similar to the first steep this remains light though full of character. The umami and seaweed has increased as has the saltiness.
The dryness remains around the same level as the first steep.
