223 tasting notes

I’ve had a few cups of this now, and its quite pleasant. Dry, it smells quite apply (though a different type of apple scent to what I’m used to. And I know my apples, my home state ain’t called the Apple Isle for no reason!). Steeped, there’s a lovely soft apple scent. Steeped, you can taste the base white with the apple being the prominent flavour. I found that using the recommended temperature for this can produce a bitter white, so I steep it a bit cooler, around 80oC. And coupled with a short-ish steep time, you can get two strongly flavoured cups or 3 softer flavoured infusions out of the leaves (using DT’s 1.5 teaspoons). Will have to try it iced before I finish the bag.

Bio

I remember getting my first cup of tea at about the age of 8. Just a standard run of the mill black, with some sugar and milk to make it palatable to an 8year old. But a love was born and I’ve never looked back!

I’ve always appreciated the quality of loose leaf, and thanks to the discovery of the fanatastic gadgets at DavidsTea while on holiday, the tea obsession has grown! Is it weird to be ordering tea and having it sent half way around the world?

I’d love to do some tea swaps with people to try new teas. I have a bit of a DavidsTea range for any Australians interested in trying some DT goodness minus international postage fees!

Ive just started working at The Art of Tea , a small Tasmanian company. They dont currently ship overseas, but im more than happy to arrange swaps with people. their full product listing can be found here: http://www.artoftea.com.au/. (December 2012).
