18 Tasting Notes
In an attempt to save money, I’ve been trying to figure out which teas in my cupboard re-steep the best. This one did surprisingly well, I did the first steeping for 3 minutes each. Still plenty flavorful, could probably go for a third time if I wanted to.
Flavors: Pineapple, Sweet, Vegetal
I’ve never re-steeped this one before, so I tried that today. A little weak but not terrible, 1:30 the first time, 2:00 the second. It was okay, I guess I’d do it again? I wouldn’t try more than two steepings though. I think sugar helped (1 tsp turbinado).
Flavors: Flowers, Fruity, Sweet
This tea smells deceptively strong, but it’s a nice, light, delicate tea. The hibiscus isn’t overpowering and has a hint of jasmine. It gets bitter really easily and quickly, so I steep it at about 170-180 for 60-90 seconds. The label says to do it for like 4 minutes but if you go in the DAVIDsTEA store, they tell you only a minute. They’re totally right – any more than 1:30 and it’s ruined.
Flavors: Flowers, Hibiscus, Jasmine
