I was so wrong to coldbrew this for a hour. It is too bitter to drink and that was my last teaspoon in the little sample I had. :( The flavour is GREAT, and then the bitterness (like how grape fruit or oversteeped green tea is bitter). So gross.

Flavors: Bitter, Floral, Jasmine, Vegetal

No judgement whatsoever, I just find it incredibly amusing that when you cold brew it’s 10 minute to 1 hour increments and I’ve gotten to the point where it’s like “40 hours? Lol, what could go wrong”. Different strokes.

It is mostly that I get inpatient and really want to drink it. I’ve left things over night, but I usually keep them in my fridge (idk how long it would take for flavoured tea to mold, but I don’t want to risk it). My fridge pretty much permanently smells like fridge and my tea will taste like fridge if I leave it in there too long. It’s the curse of living with other people. I can clean out the fridge and the smell will come back.

I’ve only had something go moldy on me once – I noticed after I’d forgotten about it and it’d been steeping for around five days. I don’t know exactly what the tipping point was, though. That makes sense about the fridge smells, though.

This tea has shown me:

1. My experience of floral qualities can be significantly affected by steep time. I thought of myself as picky about floral teas, so I was quick to write off this tea after a first session that was just too floral for me. But with this tea as well as Liquid Proust’s Silver Jasmine, a shorter steep time has been transformative. When I shortened the first steep to 15-30 sec, I had an enjoyable session with both teas.

2. Cold brewing continues to surprise me. First, this tea transferred much more flavor in a shorter amount of time than I would have ever guessed from my previous experiments in cold brewing. Particularly for a green tea. And second, the flavor profile shifted: while the 176°F infusion was predominantly floral, the cold brew focused on the citrus flavor—and specifically pomelo! My favorite was an 8hr re-steep of the cold brewed leaves, which yielded a light infusion with subtle floral notes and refreshing pomelo (grapefruit-like) flavor.

Picked this up from a Reddit tea sale. The best way to describe its taste is like a low grade jasmine tea from the Asian supermarket. Overpowering flavoring with a bitter finish. It’s prone to bitterness even when cold steeped. Trying this tea made me feel like I was drinking a bottle of cheap perfume. It’s not even close to Taiwan Tea Craft’s exquisite Citrus Scented Four Seasons, which is the best pomelo flower tea I’ve ever had.

Flavors: Astringent, Jasmine, Perfume

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 1 tsp 10 OZ / 295 ML
Gooseberry Spoon

That’s a shame. I had this in my “hypothetical cart” should I ever pull a trigger on a what-cha order.
