A green Earl Grey with Jasmine!
Awesome!

The leafs are nice… Very even in size and colors.
A spoon of dry leafs smells very much of Earl Grey, but I can’t detect the jasmine in the dry leafs. THEN after steeping the weirdest thing happened. The smell of EG is all gone and is now replaced by … (drumroll) … Jasmine!

It also taste very much of jasmine. In fact the jasmineflavor is so much in-your-face it drowns all the other other flavors. This is so unlike Perchs blend it leaves me slightly confused. They usually blends to perfection, and this is far from perfect. Somehow I like it anyway. As a jasmine tea it’s actually decent, and CHEAP, so if I ever run dry of jasmine tea I would go to this.

By the way, the coloring of this tea is also weird. Green with a brown tint.
Oh, Perch – I found a flaw of you today but it’s so good that I forgive you!

The description suggests a seven minute steep. Do you remember how long you steeped for?

Kryptryx

But I see you wrote the description also, so I assume seven minutes.

The thing is that the leafs are still in the mug.
I am lazy – but really fast drinking – so I used a Bodum travelmug with infuser and drank it about 5-or 7 minutes after. I wrote the note seconds after steeping while sipping so there should be a “oversteep” flaw here.

Hmm…But maybe I could find the EG notes in a shorter steeping period! Thank you for noting this. I try it again later ;)

I just picked up the description on the companys webside :)

I’ve found that AC Perch’s generally put ridiculously long steeping times in their descriptions. I’ve started to just ignore them.

Rijje

Yes, they seem to do that.
I guess people should follow their taste. Yesterday I steeped a tea for 2-3 minutes and the one who asked for the tea asked me to set the teaegg back in the cup – she said the tea was a little weak.

I don’t mind, but I am sure that tea got a little sour because of oversteeping.
It seems that some people really enjoy their tea strong – I say good for them!

Many things can be said about me, but I rather not go into details… Other than the facts that: Yes, I am from Greenland (Yeah, it’s totaly awesome!) and I love my books, cats and tea.

I love all kinds of tea, but must confess a greater love towards the Da Hong Pao and a deep hatred for Ceylon and Pickwick. (Yes, I am aware that Ceylon is area). Sorry, It’s not them, it’s me.
Other than that I love the greens, the whites and the blacks (and all of the things in the middle) evenly.

Rating system – I love the smileyrate here on steepster, so I’ll just follow that. That’s 1 point for the worst tea in the history of man, and 100 point for some of the best tea… note that I usually rate high because I am a optimist and love all things tea.
