Mineral sweetness. Smooth velvety mouth-feel. Faint roasted notes. Hint of chocolate tone. Brisk crispness on finish but not astringency or bitterness. I can definitely see what they mean about the scotch note- definitely present in the aftertaste. There’s a coolness on the palate similar to after having consumed alcohol.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 1 min, 30 sec 3 tsp 13 OZ / 375 ML

drank Gojiberry Green by Bon The Place
439 tasting notes

Noticed a citrus-y or eucalyptus-type aroma in the dry leaf. Resulting brew has a bit of a burnt-bitter note which masks the other flavours. Goji berry flavour is sweet with a savory edge. Mouthfeel is medium to light in thickness. Green tea has a bit of a metallic taste. Hint of grapefruit taste

Flavors: Metallic

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 2 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 8 OZ / 248 ML

drank Ginger Lemongrass by Tea Forte
439 tasting notes

1.5 tbsp for 375 ml of water

As an herbal infusion, this is very plain-tasting to me. The licorice certainly does add a nice element of interest. I am not a fan of lemon-grass as a feature ingredient as I don’t like the aftertaste. I like the ginger in this one- adds a good level of spice that I can actually feel. The resulting brew has a bit of a brothy thickness to it. I can hardly taste any mint. A stronger mint flavour would definitely be invited- I think it would compliment the profile quite nicely.

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 0 sec 5 tsp 13 OZ / 375 ML
