113 tasting notes

I’m busy making some food (southern style stuffing and a veggie tray) for a friend’s Thanksgiving gathering. I figured I’d put my recent tea advice to test and I’m glad to say it paid off.

I went with the advice I got from Jack (http://steepster.com/jack), Cofftea (http://steepster.com/Cofftea), and Angrboda’s awesome conversions (http://steepster.com/Angrboda). I added about twice as much tea as I was using before and I got the much stronger flavors I was expecting. This tea naturally has some really strong flavors, but I think it worked much better.

Great sweet raspberry aroma, and super sweet and tart raspberry taste. It finishes with a little of the bitterness from the raspberries, but still good. I added a little bit of honey to cut some of that and it seemed to do the job. The one thing I’m not a big fan of is the hibiscus flowers, they can be a little overpowering.

But overall, much better and an enjoyable experience. Props to my Steeps!

Bio

I’m one of the creators of Steepster!

My favorites are greens and oolongs but I’m open to pretty much anything (although I’m still working my way through pu-erh). Either way, any tea that expands my tastes, teaches me something, or promotes a love of tea is a winner in my book. If you have any questions, shoot an email to [email protected] or PM me.
