T&C TTB Tea # 9 – Backlog May 24
I had been interested in trying this one based on everyone else’s reviews. My first attempt was a failure because I brought it to the movies in my stainless steel travel mug….stainless my ass. Those things soak up the taste of whatever you put in them, so now mine is basically a mishmash of all the flavoured teas it has previously contained. I will clearly have to get one for black teas.
I tried to get something out of it but with no luck, the mug just ruined it. I couldn’t even tell what colour it was, it was basically a decent, nondescript black tea. And that was me, nondescribing it.
I did try again with the rest of the leaf, it brewed up a dark liquor, malty with very noticable toasty and roasty notes. Slightly fruity.
I drank it after drinking a fruit smoothie so I’m not sure if that affected anything.
(overleafed a bit, 3 min @ 96 degrees)
I would like to try again sometime! Though I can’t recall if this company has reasonable shipping costs to Canada or not.
