Tasting #1 – Steep Time 2 Minutes
Initial aroma is heavy on the herbs, sage is the one I can distinguish out of the mix. And there is a slight sweetness, reminiscent of anise. Initial flavor is still heavy on the herbs followed by something spicy, maybe ginger root, and then the anise again. When I take a large gulp all the flavors merge together into deliciousness.
Tasting #2 – Steep Time 4 Minutes
The sweetness has come out in the aroma more, mixing with the herbs evenly. The sweetness has come out in the flavor as well, also mixing evenly with the herbs. There is a light aftertaste of sweetness and a stronger zest of spicy.
Tasting #3 – Steep Time 6 Minutes
There is a nice evenness in the aroma now, I can’t determine which are stronger or come first. The spiciness has come out in the flavors now followed by the subtle sweetness of anise. The herbs are in the background dancing in my mouth.
