Yesterday’s cold brew. Good flavor – orange and jasmine, but it had lots of little bits. The bits kept coming up the straw of the container I was using. It definitely detracted from my enjoyment of the tea, though it was pretty. If I cold brew this again, I’ll need to do it differently.
30 oz, some amount of leaf.
Flavors: Jasmine, Orange
Smells of tropics, citrus, and a little bit of spice. I don’t quite get all the flavors in the taste. Flavors more subtle in taste. I wish some of the flavors would be more prominent. Maybe I’ll increase the amount of leaf I’m using. Play with the parameters a little. Thick mouth-feel. 2nd steep had more coconut coming out though I also steeped it longer. 1st steep was 2 min, 2nd steep was 3 min. I’ll probably try this again at 2.5 min. Spices were warming. I liked it.
Flavors: Citrus, Coconut, Spices, Tropical
Smell: ginger, cloves, cinnamon
Taste: bread, cinnamon, ginger, clove
Continues to taste like gingerbread throughout the entire cup.
2nd steeping: as good as the first, I get more ginger from this steep.
Very warming cup of tea. The ginger is hanging out at the back of my tongue in between sips.
Flavors: Bread, Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger
I brewed the tea at 175° for three minutes. I liked that the resulting tea was tinted pink. I don’t know why but I like my tea to have a little color, and white teas usually don’t have much. It was probably the hibiscus turning it pink. Sometimes I think that hibiscus adds too much tartness to blends, but in this case there was a tartness that I felt in the back of my palate, but it tasted more like a fresh raspberry sort of tart rather than just a hibiscus “tart for the sake of being tart” note.
