Enjoyable. Not the best tea I’ve ever had, but very much worth buying a bag or two, if only for the cooking possibilities! Had a cup of it tonight along with pouteane made with Cab Sauv gravy.

Sad. Third steep isn’t nearly as strong, and tastes, well, watery. But still has the flavours I so love, so it isn’t a total loss. After three cups, I’m ready for a new tea anyway :D

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Second steep is just as yummy, I added too much sugar, I need to start slowly weaning me off of a teaspoon of sugar for every cup of tea. Maybe after I’ve mastered steeping and resteeping, I’ll move on to sweetening ;). But the leaves are still going strong, and I think I’ve got at least one more steep, if not two, in them.

Used this to make ginger peach scones this morning, they turn out so good! I much prefer these over the Earl’s Garden scones I made for my wife last week! It brought a hint of sweetness without being overly fruity.

I have to agree with the others…this tea is very, very yummy, but not as raspberry as I’d like. Still, I’m enjoying it and am glad I bought it!

Got this to try as my to-go tea after our DT stop today…so very yummy! Much love for this drink, will definitely look into buying a bag of it. It’s a bit pricey, but I think well worth it…especially if it can help me fight this cold that’s coming.

Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

I have to be honest. I have yet to find a way to brew or sweeten this tea so that I can drink it (though I’m intrigued by the shorter steep time mentioned by the other reviewer and might give that a try). I just plain don’t like it.

However, I do use it fairly often in my cooking. Last night I used it in Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Pie (a Shepard’s Pie recipe from the comic books) and it definitely enhanced the flavour…the more of the pie I ate, the more I enjoyed it. This isn’t a tea I’ll be replacing when it runs out, but it really is quite tasty when paired with beef in a dish.

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
