This was another late night new years brew. Strangely enough, this time as soon as the water hit the leaf a strong, juicy orange was the only note I could smell. How strange! The last time I had it I remember it being distinctly pineapple, but orange is the only association I’m getting today.
Yep, the flavour is orangey-citrus for me too. If I try really hard I can convince myself it’s maybe pineapple. My tastebuds must be off, this isn’t how I remember it at all! Not bad, but definitely different.
I had the second steep this morning when I finally rolled out of bed, and it held up nicely. Doesn’t resteep as well as the Canteloupe & Cream, but definitely worth having at least 2 infusions.
