drank White Riesling by Cultured Cup

This is one of those reviews where it starts off positive but ends strangely. Not negative, just kinda weird. The dry and wet aroma are start off nice. Sweet but balanced. Once the second steeping is done that disappears and the weirdness starts. I don’t think the flavoring was necessary. Whenever there is flavoring it leaves a weird after taste in my mouth. But beyond that, it makes for a pretty good cup. Slightly sweet in taste.
Color is golden, clear amber which is slightly darker than a riesling but not by much.
Fairly silky mouthfeel. The second steeping is still sweet but with an interesting tannic, almost granite note. I feel like I just licked a new granite countertop. Or maybe just a huge slab of unfinished granite, after it rained hard.

LOL! I’ve found some “like licking a rock” notes in teas before too. XD

Hah, I am glad I am not only one who thought I was drinking/licking a rock. I completely understand what do you mean with it.

I read an article by someone who was going to culinary school. She said they literally went on field trips and licked rocks!

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.
