709 tasting notes

This came to me in a swap from Sil.
When I first smelled this brewed tea, it reminded me of apple crisp. There was a tart smell with cinnamon. It reminded me of apple, but it could have been rhubarb. The brewed tea tastes like strawberry and rhubarb. But again it could be strawberry and apple. You can also taste a pastry flavor, almost like pie crust. There is also a peppery taste that I would associate with rhubarb. Delicous. Thanks to Sil and Butiki for this wonderful blend.

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.
