The first article I wrote on this site was almost entirely about flavor, where I discussed the flavor wheel, what I call “thoughtful drinking”, and keeping a tea log to remember each unique tea drinking experience (brewing parameters, notes, etc.). The goal of that whole process is to build a tasting vocabulary in order to better explain and understand tea while also identifying types of favors you enjoy. I consider this piece a bit of a companion to that one. The goal in this piece is to dig a little deeper into thoughtful drinking.
