4 Tasting Notes
Flavors: Bitter, Citrus, Lemon, Lemongrass
Just picked this up from the package center. I really wanted to try the Watermelon Xylophone from Butiki, but paypal was down, and a Gen Y satisficer on a college budget, I turned to Amazon and found this from The Green Teahouse instead. It was eligible for a Prime add-on, and since I had already intended to purchase some Typhoo, I figured that this 1 oz pack would be perfect to try.
This tea is certainly better once it cools down, as you get a much better representation of the flavor notes. It is pleasantly sweet, and a lovely pink color. It is a bit too floral for me, and I think that is partially due to the beet root (I actually tasted a piece of the beet root to test this theory…), which contributes to the flavor. I may end up picking them out the next time I steep to see what happens. I ended up adding honey to the first and second steep, which made it just a bit more enjoyable.
The second steep was lighter, and I enjoyed it a bit more. I definitely want to try this one as an iced tea. I’ll update when I do!
Temperature Note: Brewed with my roommate’s Keurig K45 Elite, typical temp of 180 degrees.
