drank Winter Tea by Basilur
1159 tasting notes

Took again a tea bag from my big bags section and I haven’t took a bag from those for long. Mostly because most of the blends doesn’t sound good, or I would rather try something loose leaf than those old tea bags. But while searching for a needle in a haystack I found foilwrapped this tea bag, a tea I always wanted to try.

I steeped it for 3 minutes (there weren’t any steeping parameters on the wrapper), with boiling water.

Definitely a better base than MlesnA uses in their bags. Malty and lightly citrusy and certainly not bitter base. Combined with fruity and sweett cranberry flavour, just top-notch of those berries to keep it fruity but not tart.

In conclusion, a wonderful cup, but for calling it winter… I miss something. Probably some spice hints.

Flavors: Cranberry, Fruity, Malt

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec 10 OZ / 300 ML

Last year, I bought a holiday assortment from Basilur with names like “Merry Christmas” and “Christmas Tree.” None of them tasted anything like their titles, but they were delicious anyway!

I consider Basilur as one of the brands with best price/value ratio!

Superanna bought me three of the Basilur love story “tea books.” They are metal tins shaped like a book and the tea is in a pouch inside. I finished all the tea but I kept the books and store samples in them!

Trying to rate differently tea bags and loose leaf as tea bags have usually worse quality.

Buried in tea right now. Is in my cupboard (trying to be updated) which sparkled your interest? Write me, I would gladly share with you. But I don’t want anything in return now :)
