Well, I am a bit sad, as I used to have a very nice schedule for drinking tea where I would wake up before everyone else at 5:00 on the weekends make myself a light breakfast, then sit down and watch the sunrise with my tea.
During ramadan I have to wake up at 3:00 and eat as much as I can before 4:30 and then I am not allowed to eat until 9:00. So, that doesn’t make much room for me to drink tea at a schedule of my choosing. So, I believe it is wasting tea to just sit there in the dark drinking tea with an almost full stomach from breaking my fast. So, this will be my last tea tasting until June 25 when Ramadan ends, but I’ll save a special tea tasting for Ramadan’s end
However, I sat down with this tea anyways yesterday, it was 10:00 and I had just finished breaking my fast with a huge meal. I thought that maybe I could give this tea a try. The tea session however was a mess, in the dark I really could not focus on the tea and I did not enjoy myself as I usually would with such a nice tea. It might be from the new found energy from the food, but I was extremely jittery and could not sit in one place to focus on the tea. As well, I felt although I was just trying to get the session over with and not really appreciating the tea. This is where I made up my mind and decided not to waste any other teas.
The Tea for such a young tea was actually very nice. There was nothing off-putting about it, but I really did not pay any attention to the specifics, as I said before I could barely sit still. I do, however, remember that it was very smooth, and with indeed, a peachish like taste with stone fruits along with it. When I say peach ish, it was like you were cutting peaches in a bowl then left that bowl in the sun and tasted it. meaning it did not have the acidity of a peach, but had some of it’s flavor. It was wonderfully balanced swell, but there was a bit more earth than I would have liked. The tea fell really quickly, and by around the 8th stepping it had lost most of it’s flavor.
I don’t know how teas like this age, but I am sure it would be amazing after a few years if it is already very pleasant today.
After Ramadan I will definitely want to finish up the sample and add more of my thoughts, but it will definitely by a very long wait until then.
