661 tasting notes

I had a sample of this tea lying around so I tried it again. I made sure to keep brewing times short and also didn’t use fully boiling water. As a result, it was much more drinkable. I also found some mushroom, grape juice and butter notes in the taste profile and coriander seeds on the nose. It has a very strong and somewhat sweet aftertaste with floral honey-like fragrance. There is a cooling sensation in the throat, but the body feel is very warming. The cha qi is quite energizing and is exactly what I needed at the moment.

Whoa, Refused! The Shape of Punk to Come got a lot of play from me in the late 90s.

In the late 90s, I was only listening to the albums my parents bought on CD, and Refused was not one of them :(
The ones I remember the most from those years are Nirvana, Rage Against the Machine and The Offspring. Nevermind, The Battle of Los Angeles and Americana, those are the earliest albums I loved :)

A wee Togo rocking out! Those 3 were all good starting points.

I have been a fan of green tea for a while and I started exploring other kinds of tea in greater depth only in 2017. I rarely drink blends and generally avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied.
