2815 tasting notes

First and foremost, thank you to Love Some Tea for sending me a generous amount of free samples to review.

The green tea leaves are very high quality, and you can taste it. I coldbrewed half a sample pouch 10 minutes (after 20 minutes it gets bitter, aim for 10-15 minutes) in cold water and am now drinking a wonderfully fragrant, fruity green tea that tastes like passion fruits. I can taste some hints of mango, apricot, papaya, and some indistinct floral notes. I really appreciate the green in the base. I’m not a green tea person, but I find this one very drinkable, although can become bitter on longer steeps.

I would recommend this brewed hot or cold, although I really like it iced.

Flavors: Apricot, Floral, Fruity, Green, Passion Fruits, Tropical

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more 2 tsp 17 OZ / 500 ML

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
