drank Orange Pekoe by Tetley
784 tasting notes

I mostly use this tea to make iced tea, and most likely will mix half and half with lemonade.

So if anyone has been following my tasting notes as of recent, I have been doing lots of tea experiments. I have been feeling like a bada$$ mad tea scientist :P

Inspired by a discussion topic on tea cocktails, I decided to steep this in 1 cup of gin. Steeped for about 20 hours, then mixed with lemonade. One cup of tea/gin to 8 cups lemonade. It turned out delicious. I would have like the orange pekoe to have been stronger though. Will steep longer next time.

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.
