A sample from Memily! I’ve tried this one both black and with milk recently, and I actually like both equally. Maybe a slight leaning preference towards the black, because I get more of the “berry” notes, and it tastes somehow juicier. The milk seems to muddle things a bit — it becomes harder to define the flavours, although it is deliciously creamy. Still, no complaints about a versatile milk/no milk tea!

I gave 1 tsp of leaf about 3.5 minutes in boiling water for both cups. At first, I thought there was too much going on in the flavour for me to really be able to enjoy. Then, as it cooled, I had a “Huh? Gin?” moment. That’s when I knew there was juniper in here, even without having read the ingredients. Yay for my palate! Underneath the strong juniper is a hint of dark, berry fruitiness. I’m reminded a little of Whispering Pines’ Elder Grove. The black tea is smooth and somehow juicy, which in turn put me in mind of Butiki’s leafhopper blacks – Taiwanese Wild Mountain and Mi Xian particularly.

I think it’s safe to say I really enjoy this one! It’s got lots of flavour, and the black base is lovely. An easy winner.

Ok, I have to do it.

I have to bump my rating for this up.

This tea needs to always be in my cupboard. (Even though I’m going to go without for a little while, until I’ve gotten a bit further through my sipdowns.)

After this afternoon’s milk & sugar mistake, I remedied with a 3min boiling steep with the last of my leaves. Yum. Just perfect on its own.

I left a bit in the timolino to take home after work and compare with the cold brew I’d prepared and bottled.

DAYUM

AHHHHH

IT’S PERFECT :((((((((((

Seriously, I think I cold brewed for around 12hrs and it’s SO fresh and SO sweet and SO… I wanna say juicy, which is weird, but oh man. I am in love. Amazing cold brew. AMAZING COLD BREW I wonder how long I can hold out from restocking.

Let’s see.
