20 days since my last tasting note. I guess my life is too busy! I need to slow down and I need to take a little break from all the work stuff (even though I am home already), so I am writing this note.
Received from Amy, from tea swap elsewhere; and tea-mail is always a happy mail, so… decided to dig in, though I have so many other teas to drink / finish than opening single little packages.
But anyway, I have decided for this one. I recall seeing it when I was in Finland (oh, it was 6 years ago already. Or to be more precise 5 and half?). I don’t know why I haven’t tried it there, maybe the word “aged” scared me more than it should?
This is very fine EG with nice bergamot level when brewed. I did suggested steeping time (it was supposed to be 30 seconds shorter); and I got a very strong black tea base, quite robust IMO, and the bergamot level was just right with nice flavour and tends to be a bit more sour than I am used to. But it is fine and it was refreshing. And more importantly, it was natural and not artificial-flavouring like.
In conclusion: pretty much fine tea bag! I would kindly drink it if offered.
PS: I was waiting for today that Bruce Springsteen concert in Germany tickets were on sale from today. I already planned all the trip around Germany, booked the hotels and I feel that what should be planned in advance, that it is planned well. So, I have decided to buy the tickets, to find out it is indeed 15th July… but in 2023! I bought the tickets anyway, because the other dates aren’t that suitable. Yes, it was pricey, but I can’t wait already!
