Brewing infusion has a nice mix of tart and citrus aromas.

This tisane would probably be best as a cold brew with a bit of sweetener added.

Creamy sweet brewed tea aroma.
Good flavour on the sip. I think there’s some contamination on this mug here with some teas that I have been drinking previously. Flavour seems a bit dilute. I would maybe try infusing at a lower temperature for a bit shorter amount of time.

Flavors: Cream

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 4 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 13 OZ / 375 ML

drank Vanilla Chai by DAVIDsTEA

Brewed tea has a delicious aroma with a nice mix of scents.

Nice mix of flavours. I am a fan of licorice and enjoy the balance of that flavour with the other spices. I can also taste cinnamon. Vanilla flavour is present only in the aftertaste and is artificial-tasting. Overall flavour is slightly dilute, as if there was not enough actual tea in the mix. This may do better with a stronger concentration of dry leaf. I would be hesitant to increase the infusion time in case of potential astringency.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Licorice, Vanilla

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 45 sec 3 tsp 13 OZ / 375 ML

drank Forever Nuts by DAVIDsTEA

Dry leaf has a pudding sweetness and hints of oatty almond and soft sweet apple.

During the infusion, I am detecting a tangy-type aroma.

Flavour is good but a bit light. I would recommend using more dry leaf per ml and infusing for as long as possible.

Pairs really nicely with a cookie which brings out the flavour of the tisane.

Flavour is dilute. I may want to try these infusion parameters with a longer infusion time or higher temperature.

drank Wild Berry by Clipper

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. :)

Raritea

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

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.
