369 Tasting Notes
I used 2 scoops for my thermos.
Sweet, orange-flavoured and minty all the way through. The sweetness seems to be sourced from the spearmint. This is a very nice blend.
The second infusion is slightly dilute but drinkable. This tisane would not likely do well past its second infusion.
This is one tisane to keep infused while drinking- over time, the spearmint flavour comes out and really sweetens the tisane.
I used 5 David’s Tea perfect scoops for my ~450 ml thermos.
Sweet coconut-like flavour. The tangy apple flavour just peeks through. The sencha flavour gives a background smokey roasted flavour with hints of vegetal taste. Popcorn flavour is present. Strong toffee flavour aftertaste.
The second infusion is a muted version of the first infusion. The coconut-like flavour is able to come out a bit more and the tangy apple isn’t as harsh. I added a few grates of ginger to this brew and it complemented everything nicely.
Very minty. The spice flavours really come through but do not complement the mint flavour
I used 2 David’s Tea Scoops for my ~470 ml thermos.
Sweet and floral with smooth almond flavour coming through. The fruits give the tea a fuller flavour but it has an overall slightly dilute taste. Unpleasant artificial-type aftertaste that lingers.
For the second infusion the artificial aftertaste becomes muted and the tea develops a cherry flavour.
Very bitter flavour when cold-brewed. Highly unpleasant. Artificial after-taste- reminds me of the flavouring of the pastes used for teeth cleaning.
A hint of metallic taste on the sip. Sweet floral flavour. Thin feel on the tongue. Very full flowery and hint of fruity aftertaste that lingers in the mouth. Lavender notes are present throughout.
Strong round flavour. Highly astringent qualities. Vanilla flavour not really allowed to come through. Peppery taste on the finish. Floral aftertaste.
Creamy and buttery flavour. Hint of sweetness on the aftertaste. Has a distinct astringency. Very caramel-like aftertaste.
I used 1 and 1/2 spoons of dry leaf for my thermos.
Aroma is sweet. Light roasted notes; almost bitter. Jasmine-like flavour hints on each sip. Smooth mouth-feel. Sweetness in taste on the finish. Very strong vegetal aftertaste.
Very smooth. Buttery quality. Bitter aftertaste. The fig gives it a sweet aroma. I would liken the flavour to an artificial grape taste. Not all the flavours in this blend come out.
After finishing my mug and allowing the aftertaste to mingle with my salivary enzymes, I find the taste to be overpowering and not at all pleasant.
I used two spoonfuls of dry leaf for my 450 ml thermos. The vegetal taste of this green tea is very prominent. Toasted and nutty throughout. Floral notes on the aftertaste. A very delightful flavour overall- a lot of what I’m looking for in a green tea.
For the second infusion, I extended the brewing time to 2 minutes and 30 seconds. There is a nutty taste that is able to come out more. The toasted flavour is still present. There is a very noticeable floral aftertaste. When chilled, this infusion has a strong, bitter, leathery taste.
For the third infusion, brewing time stands at 3 minutes and 30 seconds. The flavour is mainly metalic with some of the toasted taste coming through. There are very slight hints of floral taste. Vegetal and floral aftertaste with hints of nutty.
This tea would likely not do well past its third infusion.
