A little better this time. I used the hot water from a water dispenser, so it wasn’t too hot. Didn’t get the astringency this time, but still not much flavor. I will continue to add more leaves! I am determined to enjoy this tea.

drank Cream by Adagio Teas

I’ve been using this for awhile as added to Earl Grey, but I figured I might as well try it by itself. I used not too hot water, but also not much leaf. The result was drinkable and it didn’t have a bad flavor, just not one to grab me and say drink more. I’m wondering if maybe it was lacking in flavor, but then the flavor that I had wasn’t all that much to shout about. I suppose I’ll have to experiment some more to see if I can get the essence of this tea to come out better.

drank Peppermint by Bigelow

Not bad. I didn’t look at the package to see if it was purely peppermint, but it seemed pretty close, though I like to Celestial Seasonings better.

It’s not as potent as I thought it would be. The tea leaves filled out the cup nicely, but the first cup was astringent and the second was flavorless. I think I may have used water that was too hot, so I’ll try a lower temperature next time to see if I get better results.

By the way, does anyone know if this is also called qiu cha, or autumn tea? I bought some by this name before, and they look and taste similar.

I mixed this with the cream tea I bought from adagio. completely eliminates the need for sugar and the aroma is intoxicating. it’s like the essence of yumminess. I didn’t use enough tea to last through multiple infusions though.

brought some to class tonight. for some reason, it was more bitter than i expected. i tried adding sugar, but the white sugar classes with the orange flavor. i might try rock sugar or honey next time.

Grew up drinking tea (especially milk tea!) and now I’m a pretty big fan of any tea. And yes, I take my black tea with milk and sugar ;)
