9 Steps to Tasting Tea
Appearance of the Dry Leaf
The appearance of the leaves can hint at quality. Larger leaves, uniform in colour with a crisp texture denotes a fine blend.
Brewing the perfect cup
When it comes to brewing time & temperature is key. Always use freshly drawn, freshly boiled water. Allow to cool to the perfect temperature – check your downloads for temp & time for each blend.
Aroma of the wet leaf
Take natural breaths of the wet leaf aroma and observe if anything stands out to you. Perhaps you can place it in one of the main flavour categories that you’ll find in our flavour wheel below: Earthy & Savoury; Sweet & Fruity; Spicy; Marine & Mineral; or Vegetal & Floral.
Appearance of the liquor
You should generally be looking for a bright clear colour rather than a dull and murky brew. A darker brew may indicate a fuller flavour and body.
Body of the liquor
To experience the best taste, take a deep breath and loudly slurp and roll the liquor over your tongue in a swishing motion.When it comes to body, we’re talking about the perception of viscosity… is it delicate and light like semi-skimmed milk, very full and think like full fat milk or somewhere in-between?Delicate—> Light—> Medium—> Full —> Very Full
Astringency of the liquor
Astringency is that puckering or drying sensation on your mouth after swallowing. It’s caused by the polyphenols in the tea mixing with your saliva. It’s useful to think of it as a scale.Smooth (very low)—> Bright/Crisp (light to medium) —> Lively/Brisk (medium) —> Pungent (bold).
Finish of the liquor
Some aftertastes are simple, while others are complex and evolving. Sometimes, the aftertaste is identical to the tea. Sometimes, it’s completely different. Again, it can be helpful to think of it as a sliding scale:Airy/soft —> evaporating/quick —> juicy/mouthwatering —> lingering/aromatic —> drying/tannic
The flavour profile
It’s helpful to look at the different notes in the start (head notes), middle (body notes) and end (tail notes) of the taste. Try describing the flavour with the help of our flavour wheel What does each taste remind you of?
Effect on body & mind
Some people find that different teas affect them physically and mentally in different ways. How do you feel? Do they seem to energise you, soothe you or improve your focus? Be aware and use these benefits to your advantage.Flavour Wheel
