Great blend by Zen Tea – Thank you for giving me the opportunity to try it.
Suggested steeping time was 4-5 minutes. I’ve found that Zen’s steeping times are always spot on in every tea I’ve tried from them. I steeped some batches a bit longer, at 8 and 16 minutes respectively.
At 4-5 minutes; You’ve got a beautiful tisane. Really lovely.
8 minutes; Very strong tisane.
16 minutes; Extremely juice-like. My man likes super strong flavours, so I was making this batch for him as an iced drink.
Flavours overall didn’t go through much of a transformation, which I think is good because they were already so well balanced to begin with. On the whole, I tasted currants and hibiscus the most. There were definitely blueberries in the berry mix, but it became a little hard to pick individual notes out. I didn’t find a yogurt note anywhere, nor did my man.
I liked this tea, but didn’t love it – which comes down to personal taste preferences really. It seemed like a wonderfully balanced blend and good quality however, so I’m pretty keen to try it in another flavor (Strawberry Cream, I’m looking at you!) at some point.
