I have neglected my beloved steepster for far too long!
I am back and wish you all a wickedly good new year and hope you got spoiled with tea for Christmas.
I’m starting with an herbal for 2013 still from my obsessive relationship with davidstea ….oh my love may we never be parted.
Soooo merry cranberry dry smells like those dried fruit bars like healthy fruit roll ups!
I ate a dried cranberry from the tin and it was nice as cranberries usually are( better then raisins).
As per my habit with fruity teasI steeped longer and put more in ….full flavour or get off my boat…or is it bus?
Once steeped just smells like tea..smells like I may have accidentally made it bitter oh well first flop of 2013 ? We will see.
As for taste it is actually nice it has a fruity fuzzy robe on for sure but it’s the black tea that centres it.it has a nice tartness that overshadows any bitterness and I think it would work with a good icing in the summer.it is no Paradise Found but its decent in it’s own right it’s what I wished Pu’erh would taste more like less earth dirty and more rich dark tea leaves steeped in history.
I will definitely be trying it again but I am rating it nonetheless that’s how I roll.
Cheers my tea loving friends drink deep and well and never stop :-)
