drank Mad Blackberry by Mad Hat Tea Company
36 tasting notes

It’s 10:59PM with jet lag, and I’m beginning to lose faith in my ability to taste tea…

Second infusion, 175 F, 90 seconds. Can actually smell the fruit now, although I’m not sure I’d be able to identify it as blackberry. I keep staring at the label on the tea bag, trying to conjure “blackberry” out of the tea as if by reading the word over and over, I might taste it.

I’ll try this again tomorrow. Trying this three times in a row has only enhanced my sense of the tea’s acidity. My mouth is puckering.

Flavors: Astringent, Fruity

175 °F / 79 °C 1 min, 30 sec 4 OZ / 118 ML

An oolong monster who lives in a remote island chain where it is difficult to obtain loose leaf tea. She used to eschew the beverage, but she now considers herself a devotee of fine leaf water. You can talk to the monster—she doesn’t bite (only slurps).
