796 tasting notes

I received the sampler pack Tea Forte generously offered on Steepster and this was the first of the five that I tried. It was prepared cold brew style in 12 oz. water and left for about 20 hours in the fridge.

This is superb! The balance between citrus and mint is PERFECT in scent and in taste, but what is exceptional about this herbal in my opinion is the texture – very thick and almost chewy for a tea. It doesn’t need any sweetener, and I’m thinking that I’m going to be ordering this to help get through the rest of the summer.

Now to restrain myself from drinking all of it so the boyfriend can have a taste when he gets home from work…

Bio

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. "
