This one has come highly recommended by Winter Salo, so lets see how its goes.
Did this one up this morning in my TImolino before leaving for work. Gave it about 6 mins in boiling water, added a touch of agave. It went quite pink while steeping.
Ok, just opened the Timolino. Smells really good, not sure what of though. Can smeel sweetness, and some tart. First sip – initial thought was “this is a bit like DavidsTea’s Bear trap”. There’s a similar tart flavour to Bear Trap, but less prominent. This one is more sweet.
Still getting the Bear Trap after a few more sips, hmm, very tasty! Getting a sweet after-taste now, a nice hit in the back of the mouth.
I’m going to hold off on a proper rating for this one, because I’m already sensing its going to come alive iced.
A note on RHTB teas – I’m finding that these teas tend to have a more subtle flavour to them, a more authentic taste which I’m quite enjoying. I can certainly appreciate the lack of artificial flavouring, unlike some other brands I’ve tried, it really makes a difference. Good job guys!
