Got this is a swap from Sil.

The dry and brewed tea smells like those sour cola gummy candies. It doesn’t make me think like, Coke, and rum.

The brewed tea tastes like watered down dark rum. There is a very slight cola flavour in the aftertaste. I added some white sugar and it made the cola aftertaste a bit stronger. I am not tasting lime at all.

I will most likely try the rest of my sample as a cold brew.

Edit: Definitely more flavourful after it cools. Tastes more like that sour cola gummy smell I got from the dry tea.

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.
