This was the last tea I hadn’t experienced on my “I really want to try it” list…until now. The leaves smell really good: rich, fruity, and sweet. In fact, it smells so good I feel like leaving the container open in my room. On taste…it makes me think of an earl grey with berry notes. I’m getting a hint of sourness that reminds me of pomegranate perhaps? After making this a few more times, I greatly prefer it iced and sugared.

It’s good. It’s also REALLY good iced.

El Monstro

That sounds about right, I can see myself preferring this with some ice, maybe a little sweetener. I think I’m going to use more leaf next time as well, it was kind of light bodied the first time for me.

Bio

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a youngin’, as a way of relaxing before bed. I ventured out from bagged, mass produced tea when I tried some loose leaf Earl Grey at the old man’s house years back. I’m still not too proud for the occasional bagged stuff, saving my snobbery for hard to find craft beer.

I gravitate towards Chinese black-tea varieties, Japanese greens, unflavored oolongs from wherever, and the occasional “I cant sleep” type of herbal teas. I signed up so I can keep track of the teas I’ve tried, and what I want to keep in my cupboard on the regular.
