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.

Flavors: Fruity, Hibiscus, Red Fruits, Sour, Tart, Vegetal

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 2 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 20 OZ / 600 ML

Bio

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
