drank Strawberry Cream by Teavana
809 tasting notes

Decided to make this one as a cold brew. I have been shovelling snow like mad to get it moved away from the house foundation (and its pretty much not making any difference). I made this one to quench my thirst from sweating up a storm. But it was not very good as a cold brew. I have decided that hibiscus + cold brew does not work for me. It tasted like the same strawberry and cream flavour it has when it is hot, but the hibiscus was out of control! I added some sugar, but that only made it out of control sweet hibiscus. I think I will stick with this one as a hot drink.

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.
