drank Strawberry Zabaglione by 52teas
4923 tasting notes

So I’m finally giving this one a rating. I tried this at work today, and used water that wasn’t quite boiling. That seems to have helped, though it’s still not as exciting as i hoped it would be. It still smells DIVINE!I just wish the strawberry was more intense. I can get more of the creamy taste out of this brew but it’s still pretty bland.

I’m almost tempted to get Azzrian to send me some of hers to see if this is a bad batch or something. I really wanted to like this tea more than i do :( Here’s hoping the blueberry zabaglione on it’s way is better.

I had trouble with this as well, and I was going to try a 2.5 minute steep time. Have you tried that?

Sil

Not yet tigress. The tea cooling brought out a bit more of the flavours

Babble

Have you tried cold-brewing this yet? Hot brewing did nothing for me but cold brewing was amazing!!

Sil

not yet haha. I’m sadly not really set up for cold brewing yet. Small friedge, other half always had a bunch of crap in it etc.. haha i’ll keep that in mind though.

Azzrian

Sil

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
