Words You Can Taste With
Feeling like you have to use the right technical term to describe a tea is frustrating, but finding your own way to identify what you taste can open up the world of tea. Focus on a few key areas of the tasting experience and use concepts that work for you.

To help you get started on your vocabulary, here are a few words that we find useful in our own company tea tastings:

Astringent - A puckering, almost sour feeling in the mouth.

Brothy - A comforting, savory quality.

Busy - Too much going on. Specific flavors overpower or dominate the tea.

Citrusy - A fruity quality, like lemons or oranges. This is just how the tea tastes; no flavoring has been added.

Complex - Multiple flavors that come across at once. Like a well-crafted symphony, they are balanced and don't clash with one another.

Floral - Smells and tastes strikingly like flowers. Might include orchids, lilacs, or roses. This is just how the tea tastes; no flavoring has been added.

Malty - Combination of flavor and body similar to malt syrup or chocolate malt.

Toothy - We use it for teas that have a more assertive body or strength.
