Guide To Tea Tasting
How do I taste my tea?
When we’re tasting tea, mainly we look following key features of the selected tea,
- Appearance – Is it twisted, rolled or a natural, flat leaf?
- Aroma/Fragrance -Smell the leaves before steeping. Do they smell grassy, smoky or sweet?
- Flavour – Is it citrusy, flowery, toasty or fruity?
- Colour – is it bright, deep color?
- Mouthfeel – is it sweet? Bitter? salty? acidic/sourness?
