Made this one as a cold brew. I know I have read it in someone else’s tasting note, but you sure don’t get a lot of tea in 50g of this one.

I cold brewed this one for about 7 hours.

This tea smells herbally sweet and tart at the same time, slightly like ripe apples. This tea brews up a light pink. I could have left it in longer but I was ready to drink it now. I wouldn’t have left it for much longer than a few more hours as I think it would get too tart. The tea tastes like apples, a bit citrousy, there is not necessarily a goji berry taste but it does have the same kind of tartness that goji berries have. Kind of a gentle candy-like taste. There is a slight smooth rose flavour in the aftertaste. The aftertaste lingers for a long time and is also kind of tart. I added a tsp of whit sugar and it sweetened it just enough. This is one of those teas that tastes like juice.

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.
