This is an odd beastie of a team isn’t it?! The leaves are very dark green, and brewed almost purple-ish. The liquor itself is also an odd greenish purple too. I may have over-steeped this one a bit…I got sidetracked, but I think it is ok. I think I may have caught it at that upper time limit. Still a bit too hot to taste, but what I can taste briefly is so hard to explain. I may have to come back in and edit this with a more precise description of the taste.

EDIT: Ok, so taste…it’s still really hard to peg. Herbally or vegetal. A shorter steep might bring more nuttiness to the foreground.

Jury is out whether I will get more. I am looking at it from a medicinal tea position, and it isn’t bad…it might be good iced with warmer weather, or blended with something else (though what, I’m not sure…it was not terribly amazing with toasted walnut, but not horrible either).

try it as a tea latte, it is great in my opinion. I find that the steamed milk really brings out the macadamia nut flavour

Amariel

Yeah? I’d never thought to try this one as a latte. I bet soy or almond milk would be best, yes?

I just tried it with regular milk, but I bet almond milk would be great

Try putting it in a tea sac! I know it seems weird and I thought so too, but it’s actually delightful and tastes like vanilla cake (to me).

I generally like a lot of tea. I do find I have a preference for flavored over unflavoured, but I do love a good straight tea as well.

Likes are too hard, since there are a lot. Dislikes are easier, so here they are.

Hibiscus. Blech. I can tolerate a little, depending on the brew, like Berry Good from Davids and Ruby Pie from Butiki…but in general, it’s too tart and too strong for me.

Licorice. Anything that remotely resembles licorice is out too, so that includes fennel and anise. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Florals. I’m cool with petals in the tea to make them look pretty, and I’m cool with teas like oolongs having a floral note, but strong florals can give me migraines. Rose and jasmine are the biggest offenders. This is one where it can vary on the blend, as I can handle Teavivre’s Peach Jasmine Dragon Pearl tea because there is very little jasmine actually detectable in it.

Rooibos is hit or miss. I can do some, but not others. I handle green better than red, and honeybush better than rooibos.

Um, I have an extensive wishlist. It is both a list of things I want to get again, and things I want to try. If you are sending me something, and you want to know which is which, I’ll tell you via PM.

My ratings don’t have a particular scale or method, and may on occasion contradict themselves, but I’m honestly not fussed about that. Sometimes I don’t even rate at all.

Uh, guess that’s it.
