I used 1.5 David’s Tea Perfect Spoonfuls for my Aqua-ovo.

The first thing that strikes me about the brewed leaf is the scent- it really does have a scent that strongly reminds me of cookie dough and transports me back to times were I have made chocolate chip cookies. I think that it smells like a mixture of vanilla extract and chocolate chips.

There’s an odd bland taste on the sip but this blooms into a very chocolate chip-like flavour. After taste really does taste like cookie dough. I can mildly detect the white tea in this one. I’m not sure if the slight astringency mixes well with the light sweetness and chocolate chip flavour. I usually associate that strong type of flavour with a dark chocolate and thicker cocoa tea. I’m detecting a little bit of nutty taste (from the almonds and walnuts) which compliments the flavour profile. As the tea cools, I am detecting more of the caramel taste coming through from the cream caramel pieces.

Overall, this tea has a nice rounded flavour.

I was able to try a sip of this tea cold at the end of my cup. It was very sweet and chocolatey. This may be a good tea to have iced.

The second infusion (7 minutes) is noticeably dilute in flavour but still carries an overall pleasant taste profile. The cocoa taste is still quite strong at the end of the sip. The sweetness is still present.

Wait, I’m curious – I just looked up “Aqua-ovo.” Are you putting tea in a water filter?

Sorry! I always mean to be more specific but I’m always so excited about the tea I forget. I use the AquaOvo Therm-0 to brew my tea (http://www.aquaovo.com/Aquaovo/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=78&Itemid=137&lang=en). I fill it to about 375 ml. I add that in my tasting notes as a reminder for what vessel I used so that I can replicate the preparation for subsequent infusions (or change it as necessary to improve the flavour to my tastes).
