I used 1.25 tablespoons of dry leaf for 375 ml of water.

The brewed tea has a definite alcohol quality to the aroma. I am smelling a mixture of peach and pineapple which is reminiscent of champagne.

On the sip, I am detecting a very mild green tea flavour on the forefront which blossoms into a peach/pineapple taste. I am getting a bit of a fizzy mouth-feel which I think is sourced from the tangy-ness of the pineapple. Sugary sweetness in the background is strong in the aftertaste. Mild toasted astringency coming from the green tea close to the end of the sip into the aftertaste.

I would like to try to infuse this for a shorter amount of time (maybe only 2 minutes 1 minute) in the future.

Yes Raritea my friend that works at Davids says to flash steep it (they suggest 1 min actually) and that will allow it to have the best flavour. I trust them because all they do is experiment with this :)

I still have at least one serving left in the sample that I got- I’ll use that to experiment with the 1 minute infusion time. Thanks for the suggestion, I can’t wait to try it out!

I just got 1 1/2 ounces of this so that’s good to know. I was worried with the poor reviews it had but I will have to try that too!

Np! I hope you like it, me and my friend are kinda in love with drinking it iced right now.
