Another sampler sip down. Loved it especially on a second steeping where any astringency was steeped out and only the malty goodness was left behind. I think of all breakfast teas this may be my favorite. It’s somewhat reminiscent of Yorkshire tea but much less prone to astringency. On further reflection it’s like lapsang souchong’s much milder cousin, and I love a tea that tastes like kindling.

Flavors: Malty

I’m coming back to Steepster after a nearly 7 year hiatus.

Going to continue my journey of logging what tastes good to me and what doesn’t and discovering new tea along the way.
