drank Vinegar Black by The Tea Farm
902 tasting notes

Backlogging from this morning; didn’t have a chance to write the note then. LiberTEAS sent me this in a swap…and I was so excited to try it! I love trying teas whose name/ingredients make you tilt your head to the side and say “huh?”.

I did a 10 second boiling water rinse, then steeped for 5 minutes. Didn’t use the One-Touch (only wanted one cup to go), so I’m not 100% absolutely certain as to the temp of the water during the steep, though it shouldn’t have been too much below boiling.

This tea is different, but really good. I really couldn’t taste the vinegar itself, but the black tea seemed stronger and crisper because of it. Slightly sour tasting, but really, really good. Yeah, my reviews are best written whilst actually sipping the tea, since I’m having troubles coming up with the right words to describe what I remember!! I saved the leaves to resteep tomorrow morning; can’t wait to see what a second steep produces!!

Thanks for sending me some of this to try, LiberTEAS! I really enjoyed it!

I was severely disappointed to find out the Tuna Melt tea was a prank. Not going to lie, I would have tried it in a heartbeat.

LiberTEAS

It was certainly a funny prank though. Gotta hand it to Frank! He’s clever!

Cofftea

Ditto Jaime.

Bio

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
