757 tasting notes

I’ve been on the hunt for a green lime tea to cold steep since I am down to my last pouch of 52teas Lime Jello Salad, and I don’t even have it with me right now, so this sounded like a reasonable facsimile.

I only purchased 20g, so I put 12g in a 2L jug but filled it up halfway since it didn’t look like a lot of dry leaf at all. Let it steep overnight and this morning the liquor is still quite pale in colour. It doesn’t have a ton of flavour, but from what I’m getting, the taste is reminiscent of Oikos lime Greek yogurt. I really like that yogurt, but it’s just weird to drink something that tastes like it.

I’ll use up the remaining 8g to brew a pot of hot tea.

You should try the hot to cold steeping method with this one! It’s (in my opinion) wayyyy better that way!

Yeah, I was thinking of that since I’m sure the yogurt bits would translate better. I was just lazy yesterday haha. I’ll definitely do it next time!

Or even brew up a really big batch and then chill overnight. That is what I do for this one. Then you don’t have to use double the amount of leaves (I am cheap!)

Fjellrev

Yeah, you’re right! It wasn’t until I already dumped more than half of the leaves into my jug that I realized it was going to be a weak batch, yet I couldn’t justify dumping the rest in. I’m just so used to cold steeping method.
