drank Marie's Muffins by T by Daniel

1.5 tablespoons for 375 ml

This tea has a definite muffin-like note in the aroma.

The fresh muffin aroma transfers to the flavour. Fairly authentic blueberry flavour (especially near the end of the sip) in the background but the baked muffin taste overpowers it. Smooth flavour that blends well with the rooibos base.

0.5 tbsp for 186 ml

Smooth leathery notes of black tea. Mellow fruity-ness of the tamarind comes through and complements the black notes very well.

drank Guavalicious by T by Daniel
601 tasting notes

1.5 tbsp used for 375 ml

Strong floral taste on the sip. A little bit astringency present; I may want to change the infusion parameters. The astringency seems to cloud the fruity guava taste.

In the future, I’d like to try infusing 1 tbsp of dry leaf for 375 ml of water at 96 degrees C for 3 minutes.

I used 1.75 tablespoons for 375 ml

Much creaminess and very authentic cantaloupe flavour. I’ve noticed that this tea is difficult to measure out with a tablespoon as the leaves are quite large. It may be best to measure the concentration of this tea with a mass per ml ratio. I will be looking to invest in some kind of tea scale in the future.

Meeeee to! Keepin my eye out for a sale :)

Kittenna

Pretty sure my scale was fairly cheap. Like, $20 or under. It was for Christmas, so I don’t know for sure.

Indigobloom

Not bad! I’m hoping for $5 tho, my Prof said that’s how much he got his for so fingers crossed

drank Eve by Nina's Paris

1.5 tablespoons for 375 ml

Smooth black tea flavour. The apple, apricot, peach and vanilla are very well blended although I feel that they aren’t as bold as I would like. I feel that these flavours work very well together.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 2 min, 30 sec
