Another B+B shop blend sample from Cameron B! Thank you very much (and hope you’re doing okay). Such a beaut of a blend here. Green tea with lovely floral colors… it does look like a garden in the description. Sadly it may work better visually than taste-wise. It also mentions this was inspired by an Earl Grey, and I’m not quite seeing the connection. I would have loved if it was a floral green tea with a quality bergamot. However, this is not that. The buttery vegetal green tea makes itself known. Otherwise, a bit of a fruity flavor. The color of the brew does turn a tinge pink, but luckily that hibiscus doesn’t take over. The second steep seems a bit thin. More pleasing to the eye than the palate.
Steep #1 // 1 teaspoon for a full mug // 30 minutes after boiling // 2 1/2 minute steep
Steep #2 // 28 minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep
