1703 Tasting Notes
Put 4 bags of this in a 1 litre (quart? IDK, I’m terrible with my American measurements) canning jar and left it in the fridge over night. The result? A somewhat tart, appley brew. It’s pretty good, but seriously… I need to stop buying bagged herbal blends that are 90% hibiscus.
No, this wasn’t a sipdown. I have 4 bags left!
My DavidsTea steeper thing broke, and I got a replacement. To christen it, I decided to make iced tea with 1.5 tsp Pineapple Oolong, and 1/2 tsp a random milk oolong I found in my cupboard.
OH YUM. Pineapple cream oolong iced tea. It’s not as sweet (good), and there’s more depth of flavour. I think I’ll do this combination as I use up my packet of Pineapple Oolong!
Edit: Steep 2 is kinda spinachy. Almost too much spinach for me. I’m still drinking it.
Yeah, I like this. The green tea is barely noticeable, which is perfect for me. The apple is more granny smith, and the rose actually works really well. The nuts don’t give me that horrible bitter nut skin taste at all, PLUS I can eat them out of the steeper basket afterwards!
I’m glad I decided to go for it and order 250g for me and my BFF. She’ll go through 150g so fast… it is one of her favourite teas.
This is… odd. I used 1/2 tsp in 8 oz water for 5 minutes like directed, and I have a barely tinted, blueberry scented… water?
Oh wait. As the tea cools, the base becomes very strongly pronounced. Not sure if this is residual steeping from the bits left in the bottom of my mug, or just what it tastes like. Earthy? Yeah. Strong? Oh my goodness yes. Blueberry? Definitely.
For me this tea is an interesting, tasty novelty, but not something I’d keep stocked.
