First thing is that I was really craving either a red fruit or citrus black this morning, but with having begun shuffling things around, I was unable to find my stash of either. And the boiling water was already cooling.
So. I don’t know how I made the grand leap to this choice, but here we are.
It seems unfair to give this a rating under these conditions, but if I were to today, I would rate it at a 75.
It’s fine, though in a perfect world, I’d like a richer flavour here, of the oolong, of the flavourings.
Hazelnutty. A bit of cream. A bit of that slightly bitter nutskin thing going on. But there’s something metallic at the end of the sip that I don’t find pleasing.
Slightly past boiling on first infusion. Boiling as per instructions on the second.
I will come back to this on a different day. A day on which I am not already slightly biased.
Flavors: Cream, Hazelnut, Metallic
