87

This tea was another find from the Sage and Daisy shop in Kansas City’s Crown Center mall. While the person at the shop was uncertain as to exactly which fruits are contained within this tea, I will attempt to discern this for myself as I taste it. As with the Blueberries and Cream tea from Sage and Daisy, this is the fourth or fifth time that I have actually made this tea, so I feel that I have a fairly strong grasp on its flavors and nuances now.

Using a two-cup teapot, two teaspoons of the loose leaf, and just-boiled water, a three-minute steep provides me with a smoothly drinkable cup of tea of moderate strength. The underlying Ceylon black tea can be tasted clearly, but the fruit flavors are just as prominent. Strawberry and raspberry are the two that seem most obvious to me, but there may well be more. The aroma is deliciously fruity, and it centers primarily around a tart scent (raspberry, perhaps). Having only purchased a small package of several ounces, this tea is already in danger of going extinct in my cupboard. I highly recommend for those paying a visit to Sage and Daisy. On my personal enjoyment scale, I would rate this tea an 87/100.

Bio

“I love trading tea and trying new teas. My favourites are oolong (mainly Chinese) and pu’erh.
Will gladly talk all day about tea.”

The above was my bio when I joined five years ago, and I felt it needed to be updated. I still love pu’erh, though I have begun to take preference toward cooked, shou. Oolongs are certainly still a go-to tea for me, but I have expanded my horizons to begin including greens and blacks based upon the weather and how I am feeling.

Still more than glad to talk about tea – anytime, anywhere, anyplace.
Additionally, if fountain pens, books, music, or computers are on the discussion list…

My ratings, this “personal enjoyment scale” about which I talk, are just that – based on how much I enjoyed the tea. I might have enjoyed it immensely, yet do not keep it stocked for various reasons. On the flip side, I have a few teas that are “good” but not “great,” which I keep stocked for various reasons.
