Mmm, tasty! It smells like a cookie! The taste is nice and subtle. Coriander really goes well with citrus-y flavors. It almost tastes like there’s vanilla in there. It’s so smooth and nutty! I can barely taste the white tea base but that’s ok. It’s still yummy.
I wonder though…the ingredients say “red pepper flakes” but aren’t these pink peppercorns? or even red peppercorns (if these exist)? There are peppercorns of some sort but they are not mentioned in the ingredients. Hmm…

Anyway! Can’t wait for the second infusion!

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 2 min, 45 sec
Batrachoid

I think there are red peppercorns but that’s based on a memory of a red, white and green pepper grinder from a secret santa party…

Found them! =D I doubt that grinder was real red peppercorns, just dyed. Still good pepper.

Cool! the peppercorns in the tea are definitely pink peppercorns then. The ones in your link are too dully colored.
That does sound like tasty pepper. :D

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
