382 tasting notes

This was my random free pouch thing, which points to several possibilities:
1. random draw (boring!)
2. they realized that I am a sucker for hilarious descriptions (“Ingredients: YES.” ROFL)
3. they have noticed that I only ever order black tea and are worried about my blood pressure.

ok, ok, so the first one is the most likely, but I like constructing unlikely scenarios in my head! Especially ones that sounds like movie synopses (“SHE’S a green tea with multiple personality disorder, HE’S a cop on the edge. Together, they FIGHT HEART DISEASE”) But I digress.

This tastes like fruit salad. Fruit salad that has soaked in green tea. It’s actually quite nice, since despite the sheer amount of stuff in it, the green tea is still very much a presence, and it’s the nice buttery kind that I like. Right now, I think the most obvious taste is blueberry, but it may just be generalized berry and I am going to blueberry because I made blueberry crumble. I’m not getting much citrus out of it…or maybe I am! And I think I’m getting peach as well, which is what is giving me the overriding “fruit salad” kind of taste. All I know is if I tried to isolate all of these tastes, I would probably never finish this.

I am really interested if each cup will taste different, or if it will always just give me that generalized sort of fruit salady sort of taste. I made a pot this time around and I’m probably going to make this into an iced tea at some point because that sounds delicious. First I have to finish off the casablanca twist iced tea that I made and have been using for the Laziest Not!Mojitos Evar.

In general I am quite pleased with this, I’ve been needing a green that isn’t the Adagio spiced green, so win all around!

Bio

I’m a Pole who grew up in Texas, is currently a graduate student in California studying Japan. How’s THAT for random?

Being Polish, my family has always drunk a lot of tea, and I am no different. I may drink more tea than water. On the other hand, I can’t say that I’m very particular about it; I’m generally pretty careless with steeping times and water temperature and I don’t even have a proper teapot (mostly because the lid broke during the move to California ;_;).

I always drink my tea unsweetened and I only add milk in the case of the most egregiously chai-ish of chais. (not really a big fan of milk in general)

Given that so many of my entries seem to be about my morning tea, I felt I should add something here about me and mornings: I fail at mornings. I fail at them a LOT. Therefore I often also fail at proper tea making in the mornings.
