765 tasting notes

This tea smells absolutely divine. You can smell notes of citrus, orange, and grapefruit. After brewing, it still retains the smell of the dry tea. The taste is a light bitter citrus, but improves with sweetener. The taste is not as defined as the smell, but you can still taste the orange and grapefruit and there is a slight sour berry taste (almost like cherry). Despite the citrus flavour, it seems to be a relaxing blend, perfect for after a heavy meal.

This is a herbal tisane.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
