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.

Flavors: Citrus Zest, Lime

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

Profile

Bio

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
