8 Tasting Notes

Not as robust as I would like. I know it’s a green tea, but it still felt as though it needed something else. What flavor does come through is quite yummy. It’s clean, lightly fruity and good by itself.

Flavors: Berries, Plums

This is probably my favorite tea as of right now. It’s so delicious and fruity.

Found some of this in my cupboard and decided it was time I cleared this out. The flavor is better now than I remember, perhaps it is because I now know how to properly brew and steep this tea. Regardless, this tea gives off a warm and sweet. The flavor isn’t very strong when brewed with teavanas recommendation. I think I will let it sit for another minute next time. I don’t hate it, but I don’t love it.

I tasted this blend in the store today while picking up some other teas and I fell in love with the way it tasted in the store. It was prepared hot with their rock sugar. I attempted to re-create that flavor at home and have ended up with something more fruity and citrusy than I earlier tasted. I think I may be going a little light on the rock sugar though. I think this is a very clean, light tea, with obvious citrus notes, and a floral undertone. I have a feeling this would be delicious prepared iced as well, but I haven’t quite mastered that yet. ;)

Sidenote: Upon opening the tin I had my boyfriend take a sniff and his remarks were “Ohhh man! I could bathe in that stuff, holy f**k.” All I could do was laugh.

I brewed this tea for 6 minutes at 210 in my cast iron pot. You can immediately smell the citrus as it’s steeping. To no surprise, that same bold tangy orange citrus is the first note I can taste. The notes of chocolate and spice are subtle but very, very tasty. I sweetened this with a very small amount of rock sugar.

As a side note, as it cooled, I felt as though I could taste more of the chocolate.

Overall, I really like this tea. The fact that it was 75% off also doesn’t hurt ;)

Very clean taste. For me, I like it a bit stronger so I find myself adding more tea when I brew.
