I had an Earl Grey this morning and a fruity oolong earlier this afternoon, so I decided to go with a nutty green now. Apparently I haven’t been back to try this one since my original hot steep (and a not-so-successful cold steep) when I thought it was a little weak on a 2 minute steep. I do tend to forget about teas sometimes…

Anyway, the three minute steep seems to have brought out more flavor, and it didn’t over cook the green tea. It’s an interesting combo of flavors, definitely that pistachio ice cream flavor with chocolate that actually almost reminds me of spumoni ice cream with out the strawberry (never my favorite part anyway). Pretty tasty, though the mouthfeel is a little drying. I think this is a tea that would be delicious sweetened to amp up the flavors that feel like they should be sweet.

it sounds good in theory!

It’s decently good in practice as well. Butiki teas has a pistachio ice cream green that I want to try.

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: I’m in LOVE with these teas.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Tasty teas that I enjoy, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
