2023 sipdown no. 56
Martin kindly sent me quite a generous sample of this tea, yet I never managed to make a note. I was so excited about this one, especially when reading notes from everyone else! I recall this having some floral and stewed red fruit aspects — quite intertwined and neither overtaking the other. I didn’t get much in the way of maltiness and certainly no astringency. It was a unique cuppa overall — I truly can’t think of a tea that’s similar to it. Thanks for sharing Martin. :)
My last cup this morning I steeped twice and both steeps were very flavourful.
P.S. Mountain Stream is having their 5 year sale and I may have placed my first tea order of the year XD!
