This is the 52Teas rebo.ot blend
The dry tea smells like sweet maple syrup. And so does the steeped tea. Mmmmm….
Made this batch without milk and sugar, and I steeped them in a Zervo tea infuser (hadn’t use it in awhile because the last time… I left my tea leaves in there way too long)
On the first sip, I get flowers touched with maple syrup. Mmmmm…. I’m not getting any cheesecake, but the flowers and maple go really nicely together.
I generally don’t seem to be able to get the cheesecake from these tea flavors very often, which is to bad, but I’m not really missing it here. I usually figure I might try it with some milk and sugar to see if that brings it out more, but I don’t really want to here. I feel like that would muddle the TieGuanYin flavor a little too much.
Second steeping: 180 degrees, about 3 minutes.
This one is a little more bitter, a little stronger on the flowers. The maple is a little more subtle this steep. It gets a little lost in the flowers. Still nice, but I think I enjoyed the first steep a little more.
Flavors: Flowers, Maple Syrup
