1963 Tasting Notes
This is quite oolongy. But good. The first steep was only 2 minutes and it was a bit weak. So I steeped again for 4 minutes but most of the caramelly flavours had dispersed into the first cup.
So while it’s pretty good, I think that an initial steep of 3-4 minutes would be better.
So. Tea. Yep.
Tea and cupcakes.
I actually think that this tea is pretty good! Apparently it’s peaches and apricots. It smells strongly of peaches when dry, but when cooked the apricot comes out a bit more. I’m sipping on it tonight hot, and quite enjoy it. I hope it does well as a cold brew, but even if it doesn’t I don’t mind brewing it hot and pouring it over ice.
3 tsp in a big mig for 4 min at 200F.
Hahaha. I quite enjoyed this tea, even though Sil didnt. Must be because I don’t actually mind the whole flowery thing. I felt the chocolate was pretty nice, although yes somewhat flowery. Finished the mug pretty quick without thinking about it.
Probably if it were less flowery, more people would appreciate the actually pretty good chocolate flavour.
I picked up some of this while I was out tea shopping for Sil and Keychange and picking up a scarf I forgot somewhere on the weekend… and I didn’t think I had tried it before, but I had.
Still, it is tasty. I brewed it hot and iced it well. Very refreshing, considering today was one of those fall days where the sun is out and really warm, but the breeze is quite brisk! My body doesn’t know what to do, so I end up being a sweaty mess. Teas like this are just what’s needed to rehydrate.
