drank Elderberry Green Tea by 52teas
221 tasting notes

In my experience, flavoured greens tend to use a heavy dose of flavouring to hide the fact you are drinking a green tea, making for a rather pointless cup. In this blend the elderberries are more complimentary, letting the sencha base skip along beside it hand in hand.
I can definitely see how fantastic this would be iced, but I think I will save that for a day that doesn’t require one to be wrapped head-to-toe in wool…

Preparation

It just dawned on me that it is winter there. (DOH!)

Here I am grumbling to myself about how the spring and summer are miserable for business and there’s a whole southern hemisphere bracing for winter. I need some more customers from New Zealand, Chile? Peru?

BTW, didn’t respond yet, but I did get your email. Will be taking corrective action ASAP.

Haha it really is prime tea-selling time! Bring on all those warming, creamy, spicy teas… which usually don’t get blended until Christmas (and who wants to drink that kinda tea in the middle of summer??).

& thank you! Thought it was a bit weird, especially as I got the Butter Pecan tonight as well :)

I think the butter pecan will make a nice hot tea too. Though it is thoroughly enjoyable (and IMO,quite ice-cream-like) iced.
