1173 tasting notes

Yesterday afternoon tea. Maté with lime flavour sounds indeed very interesting!

And smells great! Lime aroma was quite genuine with some bitter and herbal undertone.

In taste it was quite bitter, but for me who isn’t much experienced with Maté… it was surprising. But not in a bad way. Lime juiciness and other citrus notes were complementing the flavour of maté well and it was nice experience. Nothing to have necessary in my cupboard as a must have tea, but keeping a few bags, why not?

And as we have a new month here again, stats time for May!

Total: 64 teas; that means roughly more than two teas per day. Well, busy month with many exams and working on thesis. And weather is warmer as well.

I have drank 41 loose leaf teas, the rest was bagged.

I wrote only 20 tasting notes here in May! And sipped down 4 teas.
Those numbers are interesting as I used to write here much more — but apparently I was
more purposive than usual I am. As of sipdowns, I blame that I wasn’t caring too much about the teas I have there and rather trying the new ones too.

Flavors: Bitter, Citrus, Lime

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 0 sec 10 OZ / 300 ML

I am drinking almost everything. Tea bag collector who moved to wonderful world of loose leaf.

Trying to rate differently tea bags and loose leaf as tea bags have usually worse quality.

Photographer now and then. Postcrossing and geocaching member. Very curious person. Logistics student (should finish in June 2021).

Buried in tea right now. Is in my cupboard (trying to be updated) which sparkled your interest? Write me, I would gladly share with you. But I don’t want anything in return now :)
