Hmmm…

I steeped this at the below parameters, about 1.5 tsp. to 10 oz. water. No milk on hand, but I did add sugar.

This smelled like bananas + maple, and then I got cinnamon, but nothing that overtly screamed french toast/bread.

The steeped tea was pretty much just notes of maple syrup and cinnamon. It took me awhile with pancake breakfast to get the right flavors out of it, though, so maybe this will be the same way? It wasn’t bad, just not quite french toast, yet.

In my experience you get more of the flavors when steeped at cooler temps and when the tea has cooled of a little bit. Also brown sugar or Dark Agave help with the flavor.

Yep, cooler temp. Try 185 degrees. :)

I have come to the point (as of October 2014) where quality in tea is more important than quantity. Especially because I’m a seasonal tea drinker where hot tea is concerned, and a SLOW one to boot. I generally don’t resteep only because I’d be here all day if I did, though I do break out a gaiwan from time to time.

I adore French teas in practically every iteration, Japanese Sencha (specifically from the Uji region, as they offer the most seaweed flavor), and Dan Cong oolongs. I am trying to focus on plain teas and so companies like Verdant, Upton, and Butiki are on my favorites list.

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
