Many thanks to Emilie for this generous sample!

First of all, I have no idea what zabaglione is supposed to taste like, but if it tasted like this tea, it would be delicious.

The strawberries are nice and fresh, and I am getting kinda a burnt creamy taste to this. The black base is there for sure. I am getting a little bit of bitterness in this one though. The bitterness is bearable because of the sweetness of the berries and creamy taste, but I would rather it not be bitter.

I have some more sample to play with, so I will try a shorter steep or cooler water next time.

How does everyone else usually steep this? Is 2.5 minutes good? I will have to try steeping again because 3 made a bitter steep

I think one of the other recommendations is using water that’s below boiling. I have only tried this particular tea once, and can’t recall what I did, or whether it worked well (but my note should be there!)

Bio

Hello,
I am a nurse, I love to do so many things: reading, card making, scrapbooking, photography, playing with my nieces, shopping, and of course TEA!

I only started drinking loose leaf tea in Dec. 2010 when I had a DavidsTea for the first time and have been obsessed ever since! My favourite is probably white but I have black every morning to wake me up! I enjoy most flavours out there! My favourite flavours are nutty, fruity, chocolate, jasmine, tropical.

Most of my teas I rate at 90 and above, and would re-stock these teas.
Anything under 90 I probably wouldn’t re-stock unless I found a great price.
