This was another nearly-full 50 gram bag from Ninavampi!
The dry leaf smells soooooooooooooooo good! I already don’t care if I don’t like this brewed, because I love what it smells like in the bag! It smells very sweet, like caramel and maple. I’m also getting some chemicalish smell, but honestly that doesn’t bother me.
Brewed up 2.25 tsp in 6 oz of slightly cooler water for the maximum 7 minutes. The tea liquor is a slightly murky yellowish color. I immediately put some rock sugar in to maximize the sweetness. This tastes more like a candied apple to me. I get the mapley caramel in the beginning of the sip, but it ends on a slightly tart apple note.
I really like this one! It’s definitely different from other teas I have in my cupboard. I’m interested in trying this one cold.
