I have not had this one in forever. I decided to try this one as an iced tea. I brewed 4 bags in about 2 cups water for 2 minutes. Then I diluted with 1L cold water and chilled in fridge overnight.

I do not remember this one being so so so super sweet. I did not add any sweetener. It is bordering on prune juice. It is sweet and thick. There is just the slightest hint of spices but I couldn’t tell you what spices. It reminds me of plum cake or plum pie.

I think I am going to have to dilute this one a bit more as is it too sweet for me right now. I am going to have to try this one hot again to see if it is just as sweet when hot, or if maybe I brewed it up too strong for the iced 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.
