Vegetal tone. Medium-thick mouthfeel. Oceanic note. Sweetness in aftertaste. The aftertaste has a not reminding me of a milk oolong.

Good lemony flavour in the background which is a bit drowned out by the spices. Good combination with the black tea base.

A bit of an earthy-bitter tone in the flavour. Banana flavour in the background seems to be quite authentic.

Flavourful brew. I am definitely sensing some cucumber tones. Blends well with the mint flavour and nice slight black tea in the background.

Flavours are a bit strong. Black tea is a bit too astringent for my taste. The berry flavouring in the tea tastes artificial and is overwhelming. I will try to infuse at a lower temperature for a shorter amount of time

try just under boiling for 2m45s

I’m recording those settings in my app for the next time I try my new tea! Thanks Sil!!

Sil

this also makes a really nice cold brew in summer…i started to prefer it that way after a while.

Is 5 tsp for about 13 oz typical for this tea?

Raritea

I usually measure in tablespoons. Not sure how well it translates when you’re measuring out tea. I might try to back off to 1 tbsp next time as well. I generally assume that 1 tea spoon = 0.3 tablespoons. I prefer the tablespoon because I can’t seem to get those long white tea leaves to stay in such a tiny space.

keychange

Oh ok. I tend to be a bit of an overleafer anyway; I just wasn’t sure if mf called for several tsp in one cup or not…because you never know.

Sil

1 Tablespoon is roughly 3 tsps, depending on your tablespoon and your teaspoons..

I would say it’s significantly overleafed. If I was making it, I’d use one teaspoon for that amount of water and steep it only 2-3 minutes and less than boiling. I find in general that flavoured teas give me the best result if I make them the same temperature as I would an oolong, so it’s been ages since I’ve steeped a flavoured with boiling (on purpose).
