Brewed infusion has a juicy aroma with sweetness.

Hibiscus is overpowering and drowns out sweet fruity flavour. Underneath the hibiscus, there is a good mix of punchy berry favour. Overall sour because of the hibiscus.

Flavors: Berry, Sour, Sweet

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 30 sec 11 OZ / 319 ML

I found Clipper teas the other day at a local grocery store! They had maybe 6 flavoured white teas. Have you tried any of those ones? :)

I’ll definitely be on the lookout! I was pretty impressed with their bagged breakfast blend. I’m trying to find something that I can drink at school so it has to be able to withstand the incredibly hot water that they have in the student lounge and cafeteria.

I know it takes more work, but you can always put some ice in your cup before you add the hot water, just so it’s a little cooler. This would be assuming that the cafeterias have ice thingies for pop like they do over here. :)

That’s a really great idea! We don’t have any of those ice dispensers on campus but they do have chilled filtered water available… BRILLIANT! Thank you thank you! I won’t feel so restricted in my on campus tea choices anymore. I am, however, still tempted to bring a thermometer with me… probably not the best idea- you should have seen my flatmates’ faces when they saw a thermometer in the kettle.

OMGsrsly

Haha. That’s so awesome. I’d love to see some peoples reactions. :D

drank Chocolate tea by Anteaques

Longer infusion time did not increase the chocolate flavour in the tea. Probably advisable to infuse 1.5 tbsp for 375 ml.
Very little flavour with these parameters.

Very faint creamy dark chocolate flavour – tastes a bit woodsy. I enjoy the smooth black tea that is the base for this tea- no astringency.

Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Wood

Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 5 tsp 13 OZ / 375 ML

This tea was able to withstand boiling but I think there is more flavour complexity when brewed at a lower temperature.
