Tea Tasting - Part 2

Tea tasting can be as extensive and detailed as wine tasting. During tea tasting you are looking for 4 main factors - look, feel, smell, taste.

Today we are going to talk about smell.

Smell the leaves before steeping. Do they smell grassy, smoky or sweet?

After steeping, take in the aroma of the tea deeply and enjoy the bouquet. Does the smell appeal to you? Examine the infused leaves for color and evenness. Color does not necessarily indicate the strength or body of the liquor, but every tea has a unique look, taste, and feel particular to that tea.

Over time you will not only smell quality but flavors that the mouth might overlook.
