197 Tasting Notes

This has an almost roasted apricot scent to it, with a hint of bubblegum. It tastes primarily of good fresh tea, with a pleasant adition of apricot, which is just how I like it. Sweetening brings the fruit out.

I had this as a loose tea and I thought it was excellent. Deep and strong and winey, with the barest tiniest whiff of cherry and smoke, quite possibly from Keemun tea, as that is usually a component of English Breakfast, along with an Indian tea, usually Assam.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 30 sec

drank Indigo Dreams by Mad Pots of Tea

Hot, this is a wonderful tea which has 2 of my favorite flavors – Lavender and Jasmine, which somehow take turns being in the forefront of taste. A delicate tea, but well flavored. Cold, it is equally a star, with the lavender having first place and the jasmine sweetening it. All around good stuff

SERRV is an organisation that helps indigenoous people around the world make and market crafts, many of very high quality. This tea, however, is not. It smelled “off” in the package – maybe moldy, I’m not sure. Tastewise, there wasn’t much – not even the mint!

A lovely tea hot, with lemon and floral and just as lovely cold brewed. Altogether a very nice blend. It’s also quite pretty and smells good.

drank Keemun Tea by Spices Etc.

I needed to fill out a spice order and got this Keemun. It came in a standard 2 ounce spice jar! It smelled very fresh and it’s pretty good, with lots of flavor nuances including licorice, sarsaparilla, woodsiness, a tiny bit of smokey. Really a pleasant brew. Quel Suprise!

Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

This is a great iced tea! The flavors really come out, but politely. The 2 combine to form what I think the lovely scented “Mock Orange” shrub must taste like. I cold-brewed it in the fridge overnight. I used about 12 teaspoons to a 2 quart pitcher. Really super to drink on a hot afternoon.

This has always been one of my favorites. Currently I am drinking it iced and the flavors really shine in the cold – I do the cold brew in the fridge method. Used about 7 teaspoons for 1 1/2 quarts, about 7 hours. Really good, refreshing stuff!
