950 Tasting Notes
Today was beautiful and cold in Hobart (it’s summer… it snowed on the mountain last night?) and my friend came over for the afternoon to binge-watch Reign. I offered her this or DT Love Tea #7. She asked for both… at the same time. Half and half in the pot. Lovely! This really mellowed the sometimes overwhelming sweetness of the #7 beautifully.
Aaaaand I couldn’t help but finish off the last of this tonight. About half a tsp sugar added to this made it ridiculously sweet; I wish I’d tried it before adding the sugar! But this was definitely a nice brew and I’m glad I got the sample, even gladder I read the ingredients the other day and realised I wanted to drink this ASAP.
Forgot that I already tried cold brewing this sample and promptly cold brewed it again. Luckily I have a scoop left to try hot!
This time I overbrewed and the ginger is a bit too prevalent (I’ve discovered there’s ginger in here. Hahaha). It’s still very nice but just remember this is one you shouldn’t overbrew! Maybe 12hrs max for cold brewing.
I don’t ever drink these turkish tisanes by themselves, because it’s basically like drinking sugar. Which is a bit weird. However, I love having them to sweeten iced brews, rather than using boring old regular sugar.
I don’t use them a LOT, but I’ve been icing a bit more lately and that reminded me to leave a tasting note. I’ll try to remember to update tasting notes each time they get thrown into a jug with another blend.
