drank Thé des Alizés by Le Palais des Thes
1195 tasting notes

For how long I waited to even get this tea from sneekpeeq, I took even longer to try it. It reminds me of the mug I ordered nearly 3 weeks ago and I don’t know what they’re doing, making it just for me? I need it now because it has my favorite car on it.

Anyway. I think I used too much leaf and too hot of water. My water was probably 185-190 and the tin says nothing about temperature, so seeing 167 is like oh wow thanks for printing that elsewhere.

It’s not bad though, it just makes the green tea flavor a bit sharp. It’s a nice fruity flavor, but I imagine it’s better cold…or made with cooler water. Greens with some mix of fruits are always good when you can taste the base tea, and this is no exception.

I did 180 for 3 minutes and it turned out great! Maybe try that – it was hard to figure out though.

how much leaf did you use? i think that might be adding to the problem

If memory serves I did a heaping teaspoon.

hmm that’s what I used. there’s more than enough to get everything right eventually, lol.
