I steeped this a bit longer than maybe recommended with a white tea but it didn’t seem to hurt it, maybe because the delicate whites are mixed with a few different and possibly more resilient greens in this blend. The apricot flavour is quite strong but there’s a perfumy flavour present aswell, possibly from the the jasmine blossoms.
That’s it for this tea folks. It was a decent tea (and great iced) but not one I liked so much that I’d want to repurchase it.
I forgot how long I steeped this – oh well. I got to enjoy it with my friends who are both tea-holics. Good times. :)
I brewed up a big pot of iced tea which used up a good portion of the tea I had left in the canister.
When I brew iced tea I tend to add the usual amount of teaspoons per cups of tea and then brew it a little longer than I would with a hot tea, usually at a lower temperature too. Then, while it’s still hot, I usually mix in a bit of honey to sweeten it and then I leave it on the counter to cool to about room temperature and then I stick it in the fridge.
There’s such a mix of teas that I can’t really distinguish any particular kind. It is a nice looking blend though, with jasmine buds, and calendula and rose petals. No apricot though, oddly enough.
Why are there so many frickin’ twigs in this tea? It’s not supposed to be a kukicha! Interestingly I’m tasting an almost nutty undertone to the apricot flavour, right now.
Not really much more to say about this tea – go read my past tasting notes if you’re curious. :)
Steeped it twice, unfortunatly it doesn’t seem to resteep very well. :(
