Recent Tasting Notes
I am so used to eating the plump berries out of my Blueberry jam tea post-steep, that I popped one of these berries in my mouth!
It was a juniper berry.
So I quickly drank the tea to get the piney-tasting bits out of my mouth. Beware the juniper berry!
Other than that – it’s a berry tea! Not my favourite but makes a nice summer iced tea, or creamy berry latte.
Backlogging from Wednesday
I made this the suggested DT’s iced method.
As much as I really enjoy berry teas, this one seemed a little bit off to me. I think the acai berry powder maybe gave it a funny taste, kinda like I could taste the powder…..or maybe it was in my head….I don’t know, I am probably just crazy!
Anyway, there was something about this tea that was a bit off for me. I did like the juniper berry taste though.
I cold brewed this for 5-6 hours. I thought this was really good, maybe a little bit tart, but that was ok.
Nice and light strawberry taste with a delicate white background. The strawberry was maybe a little too light. I can see how this might become overly tart from the hibiscus if not brewed properly.
Not sure if I would buy this again, just because I have so many other whites that I enjoy so much better.
I had this lovely tea on the ferry to the mainland. My feet will touch real mainland shortly!
I was very happy with this tea as I could steep it for a long time (aka forget about it for 10 min) without it going bitter. It was deliciously malty and sweet with a creamy edge on the third steep. I really enjoyed this as an easy black tea for on the go. I don’t have to worry about it… Put the water in and forget without consequence. So glad I picked this tea up
Amazing. The smell blew me away in the store, and I bought my first full tin right then and there. I tried it earlier today and have already enjoyed four cups of the stuff. The smell is intoxicating, and the taste lives up to the smell. It’s like drinking a jasmine flower, which is very much up my alley.
Drinking this right now. I’ve been having fun with the Chocolate Frost and playing with temps, and timings. I find a shorter timing (4min) on the Chocolate Frost makes it a bit creamier. Still having fun with it though. I also got my Verdant Tea order including my tea of the month club one so there’s some new ones there. Although I think my Yu Lu Yan Chai might be just a black in the one package as I didn’t see any berries or such… oh well I’ll add my own cinnamon and stuff as it is still a good tea. Or maybe the goodies are just all at the bottom of the bag and I somehow missed them.
it’s stopped sprinkling outside for now but it’s still very cloudy… those clouds are not very friendly looking. So I’ll brew some more tea! and thanks to The Purrfect Cup for the idea about combining goodreads.com with steepster.com as it lead to me creating the Discussion goodreads.com for us to post on :D
