drank Creme Brulee by T2
16 tasting notes

Maybe it’s because I can’t smell but I didn’t taste anything different from in this tea, especially not anything resembling creme brulee. I ended up adding frothed milk and sugar which it took very well to, but it’s not a very special dessert tea. I also found it had a strange aftertaste I had to wash out.

Drinkable, but disappointing. I’ll brew it again longer and shorter (apparently its optimal steep window is narrow), along with some plain black tea to compare it to, and write another note. Thankfully I just got a free sample packet, which the lady was very happy to provide!

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 30 sec

Bio

I am a tea newbie living in New Zealand. :-) I often take my tea with milk and sweeteners as I’m not quite accustomed to the warm, hollow taste of plain tea yet. Just like coffee, though, I’m confident I’ll get there haha!

I also have no sense of smell (anosmia) so unfortunately I cannot include those in my notes.
