70 Tasting Notes
Much lighter tasting than a normal rooibos. Less caramel and more grassy and woody notes. Dry mouthfeel but also sweetness on the tongue. I should experiment with shorter steeping time.
Flavors: Caramel, Grass
Ooh wee, that’s something. Sweet and savoury pine smoke, reminds me of BBQ sauce. Hints of earth and leather, more pronounced on the wet leaves. It’s good neat but I love it even more Tibetan style – with a good pinch of salt and a dollop of butter. The creamy saltiness really complements the smoky notes.
Flavors: Earth, Leather, Smoke
The wet leaf has strong aroma of spinach, green grass and sweet chestnut. Those are also prominent in the taste but there is also a second layer of sweetness and hints of tropical fruit that coat the tongue and linger there. A very interesting combination of flavors.
Flavors: Chestnut, Grass, Spinach, Sweet, Tropical
