Additional notes: Steeping this one up again to see if I can taste BLACK CURRANT at all. Two teaspoons instead of 1 1/2. This time, I notice more flavor, but to me it seems like: floral plum, raspberry, grape, still cherry. All to say, much different and more flavorful from the last steep session but really not black currant still.
SkySamurai’s mystery advent tea #9 backlog from 12/22
(Note accidentally deleted.) This seems to be a black tea with a cherry/marzipan sort of aroma. The flavor is very much the same and also slightly boozy. It reminds me of Dammann Frere’s Noel Paris tea. Which I like but isn’t really my favorite of their wonderful Noel teas. (At least I didn’t brew both teas up on the same day! That would have been funny. ) The second steep is much the same with slightly less flavor. My guess: cherry marzipan black tea. Was I correct? Heck no. There was no way I was tasting black currant here. haha. And yet another shop I have never heard of.
Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons for full mug // 24 minutes after boiling // 2 1/2 minute steep
Steep #2 // 2 minutes after boiling // 3-4 minute steep
This is an herby rooibos blend with sprinkles. The only flavor I feel like I can taste is mint with some murkiness from the rooibos. It’s a pretty blend, but the flavor isn’t very clear or remarkable…also, looking at the ingredients…there isn’t any mint in here? I guess I’m just going crazy. This is a weird one. I wish the lavender had been more present!
