So to get this out of my system… I miss Steepster working! /whines/
….Alright. Now that that’s out of my system, onto the tea. XD
I’m trying to get through some of the teas in my cupboard since I have so many and I’ve banned myself from ordering anything new until I’ve at least gotten down to one bin of untried from companies (I have two currently) and a half bin of ‘from swaps’ (Have a full bin of this). So this was a surprise addition from Cavo when we swapped last and figured I’d better at least try it soon. Lol.
The dry was kinda fruity, which was nice.. Used a tsp and a half for 12oz and only steeped it for 2:30min since I’d read that this can be a bit punchy at times.
It’s not a bad tea actually. I was expecting sharp or peppery or something. But this is kinda sweet, a bit woody and kinda malty. And not ‘in-my-face’ like I was worried it would be. No bitterness and I don’t get much astringency. Hardly any at all, but there’s just the teeeenyist bit of it there.
It actually made this close to a half hour ago and it’s been sitting on a cup warmer for that time while I sip. It’s survived well, though from time to time I’m getting an almost chalky taste/sensation from the tea. Now I don’t know if that’s from it sitting here for so long or what. But I figured I’d mention it.
So nice to try, but since I have other teas I like alot better I’m not planning on keeping this one.
