Decided to try it again, as I sent sample to derk and… need to get rid of lots of small samples of teas, but usually I find out I am lazy to prepare it, because my ball strainer is affected by black tea strongly and I can’t wash it properly; and I ran out of empty tea bags (I used last one!) and… preparing grandpa is not always great idea.
Food pairing: Lemon pie flavoured yogurt. Actually pretty delicious, but bit starch I noticed. I hate starch in flavoured yogurts.
To the tea: 2 tea spoons, as I said, empty paper bag, boiling water, 4 minutes steep.
Brew is light yellow and clear; very aromatic of lime and again some medicinal notes.
And now taste? The most afraid part for me. And it is… actually, very tasty! Lime is quite decent and certainly in taste, it is even quite tart – but it is what I expect from lime tea. As well some earthy tea base, probably by linden and cola nuts. Although I can’t recall I have some in bag, but maybe it is just some pieces and it makes it certainly present in taste. I do not notice Yerba Mate at all, maybe again, just a part of that earthy taste.
I have to up the rating! From 58 to… 70?
NHL Match pairing: DET @ BOS. Go Bruins!
Flavors: Earth, Lime, Medicinal
