Digging into some tea of the month club offerings from a couple months ago. Spring clean up really digs into your time! Time to try some “Frozen Summit” tea. Dry leaf looks like mostly in-tacked full leaves rolled with small stem. Smell is of crasins and light floral toasted notes.
Did a quick wash then a 6 sec. steep. Wet leaf smells very vegital and strong muscatel/ ripe fruit. Body is heavy and velvety. Taste is bready with a good dose of raspberry.
2nd steep(6sec.): Liquor is more golden and a tartness with the raspberry is coming through. Not as bready as the previous steep.
3rd steep(6sec.): Leaves are almost fully open now. Bread is not back in full force with light fruitiness. Their is a mild sweetness towards the end but I’m starting to get a light briskness. That feeling of white pepper in the back of your throat.
4th steep(6sec.): Same as last.
5th steep(6sec.): Turn the leaves this time. Flavor revitalized a little but for the most part, the flavor has stayed pretty even keeled.
