drank Silver Lilac by Custom
103 tasting notes

I have been longing to try some lilac tea…seeing as I have a lilac bush right in my backyard I decided to try making it myself! I wasn’t sure how delicate the flavor would turn out so I picked the lightest tea I had which turned out to be the perfect choice.

1st infusion: 3 minutes
The liquor is a pale gold, almost shimmering, with a delicate lilac note and a lightly vegetal aftertaste.

2nd infusion: 5 1/4 minutes
Same color but the flavor is a bit lighter.

I still have lots of lilac left…wonder what I should try blending it with next.

Cool, my parents have a lilac bush – maybe I should try that. :)

Bio

I prefer loose-leaf teas but I do like to keep some tea bags around for travel. I prefer black teas (especially Yunnans), dark oolongs, and pu’erh. My #1 favorite is Jasmine Golden Yunnan from thepuriTea.com.

Most used pots:

12oz blue tetsubin (1.75-2.0 grams of leaf. teas steeped in this get a spoon-full of sugar)

10oz green tetsubin (1.55-1.65 grams of leaf. teas steeped in this get less than a spoon-full of sugar)

5oz gaiwan (4.0-4.15 grams of leaf. no sugar)

4oz gaiwan (2.5-3 grams of leaf. no sugar)
