TEA TASTING PROCEDURE
Tasting tea is a very different experience from drinking it. Indulge your senses and taste Silverpot Fine & Rare Tea as recommended by Silverpot’s Master Blender. For tasting tea, the ideal cup is a wide rimmed pure white porcelain cup, which displays the liquor to perfection and spreads the aroma while tasting the tea.
1. Appearance: Pour the liquor into white porcelain tasting cup and view it in the shade, under sunlight. Admire the depth and intensity of the colors. Note the ring of brilliance at the rim, where the tea touches the whiteness of the cup.
2. Nose: Bring the cup close to your nose, and take a deep breath. You will sense a wave of complex, deep and rich aromas.
3. Taste: The first sip will reinforce the sensations you just experienced. Distinguish the foreground, middle ground and background flavors – these dimensions come together to create the flavor profile of the tea.
