Finally getting around to trying this one. I see that everyone seems to like it iced, so I’ll have to try it that way later.
I’m a bit concerned after opening the package that the tea is rather broken up. Hopefully that doesn’t affect the flavour.
As it’s steeping, I’m smelling such a nice lemony aroma, mixed with a hint of fruit. Mmm, promising!
Ooh, interesting. I can taste the lemony flavour, and a bit of fruitiness, and some white tea taste. A bit too hot still though… (Ok seriously, like three minutes later and the most interesting and tasty flavour is lingering in my mouth!!)
A bit cooler now (ok, a lot), and this is quite pleasant! And oooh, the aftertaste is lovely! I’m having trouble placing flavours here, but an unsweetened strawberry lemonade would probably fit what I’m tasting. The flavours of the white tea are blending seamlessly with the fruitiness and gentle lemon flavours. This is really good! I definitely want to try it iced. I’m feeling a bit like the fruitiness I’m tasting is less authentic strawberry and moreso a berry sort of flavour, but I’m really liking it regardless. I also am not sure if I actually got any strawberry chunks in this cup, so that could be influencing the flavour as well.
I wonder what this would taste like with a twist of lemon and a touch of sugar? Not tonight though, it is much too tasty unaltered right now :)
Another hit from 52teas! Yay :) Next up, Strawberry Kiwi Margarita??
ETA: The lemon myrtle really came out in the second infusion (3 min/175F), and it tasted much like plain lemonade. Probably needed a big chunk of strawberry in the infuser (which it didn’t have). Still good though :)
