2900 tasting notes

Cold brewed 2 tsp in 300 mL water for 10 minutes. The green base wouldn’t be my first choice-I would have gone with a white or unroasted oolong. It isn’t overly offputting, I just don’t find the flavour very appealing. It tastes of a typical green tea-slightly vegetal, maybe slightly sweet, grassy, pretty typical sencha flavour.

I’m not getting very much jasmine, but I do like the blackberry/fruit flavours. I can taste blackberry distinctly, and it brings the sweet fruit flavour that I was looking for in a cold brew this morning. It tastes like blackberry jam, green tea, maybe a tiny hint of something floral.

Cold brewing for only 10 minutes sounds too short.

With 300 mL water I don’t feel it was too short. The brew was plenty colourful, so I feel like it should be full-flavoured. I did do a few other steeps with longer steep times also, but I never got any jasmine. It might be that I was too focused on the delicious blackberry.

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
