2335 Tasting Notes
I don’t remember where I got this flowering tea, but it is a brand called Technology scented tea. My tea ball did open up to have an orange lily in the centre, however it isn’t jasmine or rose scented like I had hoped. It tastes like a typical Chinese black (reminds me a lot of YS Golden needle/tippy Yunnan blacks). Some Earthy notes that make me think of a Yunnan puerh, but not as pungent.
While I normally resteep flowering teas, I will not be resteeping this one. It wasn’t a bad cup, but I wanted a delicate jasmine green or white tea.
This is very good. The SBT teabags are enormous, so I opened the bag and put 1/4 of the tea into a mesh steeper and cold brewed it that way. Lots of lime, some creamy notes. I could use more marshmallow, but this is also an older sample from Starfevre, so it may have lost some of its flavour.
