French Friday! Today from the sampler bag from Dustin (thank you!) comes this tea. The dry leaf smells really nice… it is reminding me if a lemon lime soda (!?) but with a sort of creamier, vanilla aspect. Brewed 2.6g in 350ml 175F water for 3 minutes.
I’m still getting a strong citrus cream aroma from the brewed cup, and something a little floral/berry? Like an aroma somewhere between strawberry and the floral/cherry aroma of sakura. Has a very fresh, grassy undertone; the flavor is strongly that lemon/lime sort of taste I was getting on the nose, but there is a sweetness there that lingers on my tongue, a mix of a cream/vanilla/coconut note. I only get a very subtle red berry sort of flavor close to the end of the sip and lingering into the aftertaste; it isn’t reading as the rhubarb listed in the flavorings at all, though, more of a subtle strawberry mixed with a more tangy cherry.
I really like this one! Of the more citrusy green blends I’ve tried so far, this is by far my favorite. I think only the Oh La La…! (which tasted like cola to me) tops this of the teas I’ve sampled thus far.
