This month’s tea sample is supposed to be served iced but I wanted to end the evening with hot tea. For some reason, pomegranate doesn’t taste like much to me – it’s a pleasing taste but it’s hard to figure out exactly what the taste is.

4 minutes is a little long for a white tea. This gives it a bit more flavour without compromising the delicate nature of this fragrant white.

lol I agree, but you should check out Adagio’s suggested steeping times. But then again I also think 180 can be a little hot for whites as well. But then again whatever floats the leaf in your tea cup:)

Rich in flavour but lighter than hot cocoa… this is my “goodnight” choice.

Strong taste – imagine the “Red Bull” of teas.
I’m having it over ice, great for after a brisk walk.

It’s their sample tea this month – made a pot by oversteeping a bag. (Let the cries of “heathen” commence…)

This is a solid green tea with a honey taste that’s pleasant but fresh honey is preferred.

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 8 min or more
