Muscat is a grape…
Pay attention to the tea!
It’s human error.
This tea is much darker than the last. This may be due to an oops on my part of loading up on tea and then not realizing how little water I’d heated up. So, the liquor is a dark mahogany. The scent is a little musky with a muskatel finish. (Yay knowing what a muscat is! Thank you delicious Japanese gummies!)
My first few sips are washing away the delicious brownie bite I just had, so they are dominated by TEA flavor. There is an astringency that I attribute to my terrible steeping. I can taste a bit of the grape, but it doesn’t have the sour/sweet I was hoping for.
(And…the rest of my post was lost due to not paying attention to closing out screens. I steeped this twice more. The second steep was alright. It had more of the muscat I was looking for-especially on the breath. The third steep was nigh undrinkable.)
