Cold infusion overnight creates a very nice brew. Lime citrus flavour is most prevalent- could be a bit more tangy. The infusion has a hint of creaminess to it as well.

Dull sweetness reminiscent taste of licorice and sometimes chamomile. Mineral and almost spicy flavour. I am detecting the typical white (what I call) swampy note. I was served this at PekoeTea and was presently surprised to discover that the tea in my pot (with free-floating tea leaves) did well even past the initial 3 minute infusion. It also held up well to subsequent infusions- about 2 re-infusions but I feel as if it could have taken more.

This tea is missing the tartness I expect when I taste lime. It leaves everything feeling rather flat. The black tea is a smooth base with only a twinge of bitterness near the end of the sip. The lime flavour is dull- more of a present aroma than a full flavour. However, it does bring the attention to the nice black base

Thanks to Sil for sharing!

I tried to be very conservative with brewing this tea as it seemed like it might be bitter. I can definitely taste the rich, malty tones but there is still quite a bit of bitterness. I might try using less dry leaf next time.

Very flavourful. I can taste the bread-y texture of the gingerbread in the top note. There’s a roasted cookie note. I don’t feel that green tea is the best pairing for this flavour.

Dry leaf has a strong floral/vegetal aroma.

Brewed tea has a strong vegetal aroma.

Flavour is mostly vegetal with a clean sugary fruity (cantaloupe) finish). Buttery notes in aftertaste. Thick mouthfeel with a very satisfying savoury note. As the tea cools, I am detecting a mild smoky note in the back of the throat- somewhat like charred asparagus.

Flavors: Cantaloupe, Fruity, Spinach
