Day 8 – Siam Tea Advent
First Steep: 1 minute
Once prepared this tea is yellow in colour and bares a soft, seaweed scent.
Flavour is also subtle yet very clean tasting. Hints of dry grass, seaweed and flowers with a dry after taste.
Also somewhat buttery with mild sweetness. Very easy to drink.
Second Steep: 20 seconds
More cloudy yellow at this point.
A lot more flavour now the leaves have been opened. Umami goodness with mineral tones (kale and broccoli), seaweed (that touch of salt) and the thick but sweet grass that coats the tongue to give complete mouth feel. Some dryness in the after taste though.
Umami is very soup broth like but I adore it. It’s not too heavy here but it is noticeable. Delicious!
