From Riston

Carefully selected green tea blended with red rose petals and cornflowers create the excellent taste and soft flowery aroma. Mildly flavoured with exotic vanilla, juicy blackberry, blueberry, and lemon. It can be served hot or iced.

Sipdown! But no change in numbers because I guess I didn’t record this one. Sigh.

Anyways, picked this up at the Toronto Tea Festival. This is the first tea I’m actually trying from Riston – I have samples of others (teabags and a tin split with Sil), but haven’t gotten to them quite yet.

The aroma was actually pretty flavourful once the water hit the teabag (prior there wasn’t much) – the tea looks to be flavoured with black/dark purple fruits, e.g. blackberry, black currant, blueberry – and what I smelled most was a juicy sort of black currant. Tastewise, it’s not bag for a bagged tea, but even with my standard green infusion parameters, which are pretty conservative (82C/2min), the base is bitter. However, it is quite fruity – again very black currant, with a punch of lemon. I really wish the base behaved, because this could actually stand as one of the better flavoured greens I’ve tried. I may try a re-steep, but with the base bitterness, it will probably just head down the drain.
