This is a fun tea. In the description she suggests adding salt to bring out the potato flavor or sugar to bring out the apple. So I made a pot and poured it into 3 smaller cups. Added a slight bit of rock sugar to one, slight bit of fleur de sel to one, and left one alone. I tasted the plain one and was really intrigued, but wanted it either saltier or sweeter. So I tried the salted one, loved the potato flavor but wanted to still taste the apple, which kind of went away. Tried the sweetened one. Good, but was missing the potato. So… I took all 3 cups mixed them all together. Both sugar and salt in the mix. I like it the best. I’m not sure how often I’ll have this, but I can see craving this every so often.

Glad you think this is a fun tea! I’ve been kind of drinking it almost as a sweet broth and was thinking about adding some cooked noodles to see how it tastes.

Funny, the broth thought was in my head during my last few sips, especially with the slight saltiness. I bet some noodles would actually be pretty good. I’m partial to udon noodles, but they’re probably too heavy. What were you thinking?

Oooh, I love me some udon noodles. Yum! I was thinking of some thin rice noodles but would definitely be open to suggestions.

Bio

I love tea. And I love beer. I spent my twenties thoroughly enjoying all that beer has to offer but now that I’m into my thirties and a stay at home mom of 2 little kids and 1 big kid, I spend more time enjoying tea.

I joined steepster in Feb 2013 and it’s crazy how much my tastes have changed since joining. Before, I liked cream and honey in all teas and loved mostly dessert blacks. Now I almost rarely drink them, but enjoy them from time to time. What I love more than anything are straight rich black teas, Fujian, Laoshan, Rizhao, etc… I also love pretty much any black tea that the little leaf hoppers have gotten their teeth on.

I’m still not too into the green/white/oolong varieties. I keep trying to but my tastes are evolving pretty slowly on that front.

Overall, I just enjoy tea. Something about it that just settles me.
