GCTTB6

I pulled this from the TTB to make at a later date as there was only a single serving left. I do not recall who added it to the box but thank you to whoever it was for sharing and the chance to try something new! Unfortunately this was not my favorite. I made it iced and though there was a slight berry flavor, it was more astringent than anything.

ETA: Thank you Kristal for the addition of this tea!!

GCTTB6 I pulled out tiny amounts (~1 tsp or less) of a lot of the to try later. This is one of those, as will be after future round 6 entries. I still have 10 or so left.

This was mostly fruit, so I’m hoping the caffeine content is fairly low.

Brewed 1 tsp in 350 mL hot water (my kettle said 188 deg F, but I can’t figure out how to turn the reading to Celsius on the kettle, and I can’t be bothered to convert F to metric manually, either. Normally I use a thermometer, but it is dirty and I didn’t feel like washing it.)

The brew is a pretty light pink, it smells like bai mu dan white tea (vegetal/leafy) and fruit. I can taste a lot of hibiscus in this blend (why!?!), but the white tea was nice. I wouldn’t say this is specifically plum or berry flavoured, more of generic fruit with a lot of tart hibiscus. I this one would be better iced…or without the hibiscus.

GCTTB DAY 6

You know you have a problem when you are planning out your teas for the next two days because there are so many teas to try and so little time. I’ve only been sampling teas a teaspoon at a time, but there are just so many that I had to go through the remaining ones I haven’t tried yet and yay or nay it based on how much I wanted to try it before I leave for Slovakia. Now I still have too many… I’m gonna have to up my daily tea intake for the next two days, I think.

This one was alright. The berry aroma seemed a little artificial and cloyingly sweet to me, but thankfully it was mild enough that I didn’t mind it too much. The tea was light and pleasant, but nothing that impressed me too much. I haven’t had much luck with white teas so far that I’m starting to think I don’t know how to properly appreciate their flavour. Maybe I just haven’t tried very good ones so far.

Tried this a while ago. The first bit of the cup tasted like soap. Like, I actually wondered if I left dishsoap in the mug. Gross. After it cooled down it just tasted like diluted hibiscus with a standard white tea base. Either way, I didn’t care for this blend. I’m gunna pass it along to someone else.

Flavors: Hibiscus, Soap, Tart
