Amazing rhubarb and slightly creamy aroma from the infusing tisane. Quite tart with a soft edge. Tartness reminds me of hibiscus but bearable. Banana note.

drank Bamboo-Pomelo by TeaGschwendner

Brewed for 10 minutes.

Amazing balance of flavour. The lemongrass is not at all over-powering (just a bit of a flatness in the aftertaste)- the bamboo flavour is able to come through well. Sweetness in the background. There’s some kind of fruity body to this- like I can imagine biting into a fresh pomello. No off-flavouring.

Thanks to Sil for sharing!

In the brewed tea aroma: molasses, cocoa

Tea has a strong white tea swampy taste to it. Molasses-honey sweetness in the background with a slight bitter cocoa edge.

Second infusion at boiling for 4 minutes. The cocoa flavour really comes out!

Third infusion at boiling for ~6 minutes. Cocoa-y, slightly creamy and delicious.

Thanks to Sil for sharing with me!

Quite bitter. Pretty good mouthfeel. The sweetness of the jasmine is hidden by the bitterness of the brew. Maybe I should try to infuse at a lower temperature next time

drank Maracaibo by Crio Bru

Infused for 8 minutes but I have been advised to try a longer infusion for next time (10 to 20 minutes). I used 1.5 tbsp for 375 ml.

Brewed infusion smells like dark hot chocolate. Flavour is quite dilute but I think the longer infusion time will give a better representation of the actual flavour.

Thanks Sil for sharing with me!

I’ve actually left it for half an hour….sooooooooo good ;)

OMGsrsly

Also, gently simmering it on the stove in some sort of milk, then straining it into a mug. Just don’t use paper, as the fine bits of chocolate will clog it!

Brewed tea smells strongly of chestnut. Mouthfeel is very thick. Hint of sweetness which complements the profile well. Mild roasted chestnut flavour. A bit of a bitter flat note near the end of the sip. The spinachy flavour that I normally associate with Long Jing is subdued and mixes with the nutty chestnut very nicely. Aftertaste is refreshing and sweet.

Flavors: Chestnut, Spinach
