1335 tasting notes

Sipping on a pot of this herbal tea now. Another old ass tea from depths of the kitchen, best before 08/2012.

Smells like berries > hibiscus > chamomile. Tastes like a mouthful of apple-straw chamomile tea, with very light hibiscus on the sip and a light but lingering berry-lavender aftertaste. Linden, lemon balm and lemongrass? Can’t taste ‘em. But maybe the lemon herbs are giving the slightly drying liquor this bit of lemon sourness. It’s aight.

3 bags to a 750mL? teapot.

Flavors: Apple, Berries, Drying, Floral, Hibiscus, Lavender, Lemon, Straw

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more 25 OZ / 750 ML

Best before 2012? I bet I have a stash of those somewhere! (My loose tea hoarding started in 2012 or so, but I have some Tazo & CS bagged teas from prior. Much, much prior. Ha.)

I feel fortunate that I started collected in fall of 2016, which means my “mass collecting” and oldest teas now are mostly 2017s that I’m trying to sipdown and get out of my house. So nothing in my cupboard is too old at the moment. But I don’t have the storage to keep getting more and hording without clearing out now, so I think I’ll never have anything that spans beyond that two year gap anyway. (Aside from trades, and I guess anything goes with that… total mystery there!)

I most enjoy loose-leaf, unflavored teas and tisanes. Always on the lookout for teas from countries and regions not commonly known for tea production or those that are not well represented in the western market. I seek these teas to gain an understanding, however vague, of how this plant performs in different climates.
