Much better this time, a little nutty. This tea was my first tea where the leaves were rolled and it’s taken me awhile to get the amount needed for a good brew right. (Hint: a little less.)
175 Tasting Notes
Well, the more I drink it the more it grows on me.
Good stuff, as all A&DDFT products seem to be, but does the smell remind anyone else (just a little bit) of a horse? (Thank you, Grandma and Grandpa, for living on a farm.)
I thought this tea was alright cold brewed, and brewed hot I think the same. I’ve had better jasmine teas, this one was a little too vegetal for me, personally I prefer the illusion of drinking a flower.
I tried again, this time (cold) brewed a little stronger. This time around the tea flavor is both obvious and enjoyable. I don’t know if I had just not been using enough tea or if the tea itself needs to be brewed a little longer on the whole.
I’m on the fence with this tea. I’ve only made it cold brewed and it is very light and slightly sweet, but to me it seems too light. I like a definite flavor with my tea.
Today was cold and wet, so I brewed this one hot. My first rooibos was a peach vanilla blend, which I tried cold brewed. It was nice, but a little too sharp in it’s flavor, which I assumed at the time was due to the fact it was cold brewed. I suspect I was right, as this rooibos was not nearly as sharp and very blackberry smooth.
Overbrewed and bitter.
Since Steepster underwent such a marked improvement I’ve decided to start adding notes, so this is my first.
In my opinion it is not quite hot tea season yet, so this Oolong was cold brewed. My method is to just throw a few spoonfuls of tea in a jug of water and leave it in the fridge for about 14 hours.
This was my first Oolong tea and I found it enjoyable, very much a smooth “buttery” taste.
