59 Tasting Notes
Still one of my favorites!
As delightful as ever.
Kicking this rating up a little bit. Just a really pleasant tea, if the flavored thing is your thing. It’s flavored, but it’s all subtle. I think it’s probably the chamomile’s influence keeping the fruit and vanilla in check.
This hit me just right today. The natural sweetness, the hint of tannin… just right!
Giving this ever so slightly a bump. Very pleasant on first steep, somehow got bitter on the second, with the same steeping parameters. Interesting…
This is a delicious tea. It’s got great acidity without being over-the-top with it. Very refreshing in that regard. The orange notes are very present, but not overwhelming like so many fruit teas that smell like scented candles. The tea mellows with multiple steepings.
Very, very nice. Would drink every day and twice on Sunday.
Much better on second, shorter steeping. Not as much bitterness in the finish. Will continue to experiment. Provisional, semi-positive rating granted.
I’m not sold on this yet, but from reading some of the tasting notes, it appears that it may take a lot of experimentation with the time/temp/amount of leaf.
On the advice of the tasting notes, I used 2 tsp of leaf and steeped for 2 min at 160°. This produced a brew that, while initially lightly sweet, quickly turns fairly bitter and leaves an unpleasant aftertaste.
Rating pending. Going to try a second, much shorter steeping now.
Very tasty. Tannic without being bitter. Fruity without being sweet. Medium-bodied, but light enough to drink in the afternoon when I so often reach for a green.
