SPRING SONATA



Tea type: black tea

Brand: Goldentips

How to prepare it: 3-5 minutes, 90°C (195 °F)


Dry scent:

Immediately strong herbal notes arise, but they are very gentle and smooth. There is a background which reminds me malt. Then strong woody notes follow, with some tannin hints. At the end a smooth sweetness shows up, which recalls muscat grapes.


Liquor’s colour:

Pale yellow.



Liquor’s scent:

There are the same herbal notes, but now tannins are more in evidence than before. In the background a light sweetness of honey.


Liquor’s taste:

Extremely full-bodied, smooth and light. Typical herbal notes of a first flush darjeeling; tannins are basically absent, and so the bitterness. It’s slightly sweet, with some hints of grape and nut at the end. Extremely consistent with the herbish notes, but now the woody ones disappear. It leaves a slightly astringent and herbal aftertaste.


Conclusion:

A black tea which strongly reminds a green one under certain aspects. Quite complex, a meditation tea.

9/10
