740 tasting notes

There are certain black teas that are off-putting to me. Instead of tasting the usually earthy notes, I taste wet dog. The smell of wet dog is pungent and you can’t get it out of your head once you smell. But eventually, I settle into the cup and notice the flavors. This one has compost and wet forest floor. It is slightly astringent but still has a nice mouthfeel. The wet leaf aroma is very nice. Deep wet woods after a nice misting rain.

Tea is a way of life. The more you drink tea, the more you learn about tea. I’m mostly a purist but also a bit of a tea adventurist. If there is a new tea or brand to be discovered I will try it out. I love every type save for dark teas which I just can’t seem to take a fancy to. The only ones I usually refuse to try are green tea and citrus mixes. Just nope.

I’m a stay at home mom who loves gardening, exploring, and being with my family.
