Day 2 – Siam Tea Advent Calendar
First Steep: 3 minutes
Once steeped the resulting tea is amber in colour and bares a sweet malt scent that matches it’s raw form.
The first sips reveal a beautiful malt flavour that’s sweet yet creamy that leads to a slightly dry after taste. Some astringency but very minor and only for a second.
It’s sweetness resembles rock sugar. There is thickness which is rather wooden/clay like but it diminishes quickly to leave the dry, malt after taste that coats the entirety of my tongue. Also getting a hint of prune/stone fruit.
Second Steep: 4 minutes
More burnt orange now in colour though it’s difficult to tell from the picture.
This steep is lighter than the first one but very easy to drink. Remains sweet and malty though delicate with an increasingly dry and somewhat astringent after taste.
