Cold Brew Sipdown (122)!

Couldn’t help but think of Anna when drinking this hedgehog-y tea. It comes from the lovely MissB though. I’m loving drinking these samples from your travels abroad. Gotta thank you and the H&W for including me even though I’m far off in Saskatchablah.

I admit; I had to look up what Quince is supposed to taste like. I didn’t have a clue what it was. I’m incredibly proud of my taste buds though because I when I tasted this I thought it tasted incredibly akin to very ripe apples and Bartlett pears and, after looking Quince up, I learned it’s supposed to taste like an apple/pear cross. Score one me! Seriously; I was tasting the quince before I even knew what it was.

I also thought that there was a light floral undertone to the flavour too though; it rounded the tea out and made it feel more layered in flavour though there were moments where with the fruit it tasted borderline perfume-y. The green base was…

Well, it was green. Really green actually in that sort of colour equals taste way – but I couldn’t break it down further for you. I was focusing perhaps a little too much on figuring out what the quince was and less on the backdrop for the flavour. I didn’t mind it though; it all went together very well. I’m not big on green teas in general; but fruity is the way to go with flavouring them, in my opinion. Kinda hard to mess that up (unless the base itself is shit).

Thanks MissB – this was surprisingly really lovely! I almost wish I hadn’t passed on my last little bit of it to someone else (though I’m sure she’ll love it). I’m curious how this one would have done hot…

Quinces are very very floral. There is a super short harvest season in the fall – maybe your work will carry them!

Kittenna sent me a bunch. I had some and put it in either CrowKettle or Bear With Me’s bag.

OMGsrsly

(What I’m saying, Sil, is that you don’t need to send me more and if you find the energy to dig through my box that’s cool.)

Sil

oh if kitenna sent you a bunch it’s not in the box lol

What?! I’m the first reviewer?

This is from the lovely MissB who’s on walkabout in Europe.

It smells SO heady and fruity. Kinda like the quince and apple thing I made in the fall, actually. Quince is so delightfully perfumey, and even though this is definitely a sencha base, the perfume overshoots the mineral/seaweed flavours.

Sipping on this hot, it tastes like I remember quince smelling. Floral, apple, something unidentifiable that is quince. I’m quite liking this. Not necessarily enough to keep it all (ha!) but enough to slow down and really appreciate this cup.

Even cooling, as the green base becomes more apparent, I’m still liking this.

Thanks, MissB!
