Another one finished off! I decided that what I really needed was something black and fruity sweet, not something plain black.
So I took the rest of these leaves, again, enough for just half a pot, and botched the brewing. I put them in the pot, but by the time the water was done boiling I’d forgotten that I only had enough leaves for half a pot so I filled it up. I don’t like pouring a botched brewing away without tasting it first, so we’ll see if I just wasted the last of my leaves of this one.
Yes, it’s definitely a bit on the weakling side. It’s still tasting like a black tea though and there’s they sweet fruity note that I wanted clear enough. It just doesn’t really have much body. But that’s my own fault.
I like it. It was fun to try and I’m curious about this guanabana fruit. Unlikely to ever get to taste one, but still. I kinda suspect that I would like it. But it’s not a tea that I feel any need to stock up on.
Suzi logged this yesterday and reminded me that I still had some left in my sample tin. I bought it primarily because of the odd name. Never heard of this fruit before, but if I ever get to South America (doubtful, considering my fear of travelling) I’ll have to make sure to try and taste it.
It’s sweet and fruity and tastes tropical. If I knew what the fruit really tastes like ‘au naturel’ my review of it might be difference, but as it is I’m thinking it’s a fruit I might like. So this is my morning cup on this grey and dismal looking thursday. I understand the majority of you lot have a holiday today, so I’m guessing a lot of people won’t be around. Wow… bad day for me to get addicted to the live stream, but there you are. My life in a nutshell.
I had never heard of this before, but apparently it’s some sort of tropical fruit that we others can’t get because the fruit doesn’t transport very well.
The dry leaves smell weird. Sort of fruity and bitter at the same time. Like a very old orange. At this point I’m sceptic. Very sceptic.
Colour is nice and golden and the scent is something familiar that I can’t quite place. It’s not mouldy oranges anymore anyway.
The taste is…. strange. Fruity. Adagio suggests something akin to candied strawberry and pineapple. I can’t really ‘find’ those notes but at the same time I don’t really disagree either. I can’t tell when I don’t know how the fruit is supposed to taste.
I like it. I don’t think I’ll stock up on it once I’ve got through the sample, but I like it.
