I bought this cheapie during the sale. I love when they have some limited edition teas for sale. It’s the time to try them! I don’t think I’d be interested in this one if it wasn’t on sale, but I’m glad I grabbed some because it is tasty and unique… a flavor profile I’ve never had before. It’s oolong that I can hardly see in the blend with tons of shredded rose petals and huge cascara coffee cherries. I think I had one tea in the past with cascara coffee cherries but it was old. I used two teaspoons and I think that is the correct amount for a mug, as the cascara coffee cherries are huge and I wanted to make sure a couple bundles of oolong went into the infuser. The flavor is not what you’d expect. The main flavor is just a sweet creaminess. It’s very odd with these ingredients… with maybe the subtlest hint of rose. I’m glad it’s not overwhelming rose. I want to say there is a hint of cherry blossom or cherry to the blend, but I could be mind-controlled by the “Cascara Coffee CHERRIES”. It certainly doesn’t taste like coffee. All these ingredients sure fill up the infuser basket. I think it’s a well-balanced blend, and a flavor profile I haven’t found anywhere else. All three steeps were the exact same flavor.
Steep #1 // 2 teaspoons for a full mug // 20 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 // 10 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #3 // just boiled // 2 min

I have never even heard of Cascara Coffee Cherries!

They’re definitely not in many tea blends!

Exactly two months ago I have wrote a review for this one. Time flies.
Anyway, yesterday was my first day without tea (since New Year) – I was whole day in school and when arriving home I really didn´t wanted any.

Prepared western, I did not weigh (but I think about 3-5 grams) for my favourite glass mug of volume around 300 ml. Tea was in water for… maybe 3+ minutes.

Colour is clear yellow-green, little dusty. Aroma is kinda floral, creamy, little notes of sour, or it is rose soap?

Well, in hour and half I should be at dentist. I don´t really want go there, but what I can do? Liteally nothing. It may sound funny, but it is kind of big achievement for me. I was not there for 3 years and before that I was not there for 7 years. Probably avoiding the costs :D . And I forgot about exam today – from Algorithms, it is not really hard, but oh well, it is tiring having each week an exam and from something else.

Okay, first sip is again very floral. But quite sour as well. Not a bad thing though. Certainly interesting blend, not really my cup of tea though. Maybe too much rose soap I notice?

At least the panic attacks are somehow moreless gone. (This must be wrong in English, right?). Feeling tired all the week though. Not just week. I want the semester end and then I should study and study… during exam period. I guess – it is so much to handle. Or I need to stop stereotypic life-style.

Flavors: Floral, Pleasantly Sour, Rose, Soap

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 30 sec 4 g 10 OZ / 300 ML

(If you’re asking, it would be “panic attacks are somehow more or less gone”. Don’t worry, it’s confusing in English too. haha. But you’re doing well with English.

I hate going to the dentist… I still have my left side to be worked on and I’ve been dragging my feet. It’s an achievement for sure, Martin.

tea-sipper: thanks, sometimes it’s so hard translate my thoughts to sentence

Kawaii433: same, but it was necessary, she fixed one tooth and one pulled out. Bang, about 60 dollars (converted) gone.
