drank Sea Breeze by A C Perch's
1199 tasting notes

Our A.C. Perch’s advents have arrived and with it, two samples of this tea!

The steeped scent is enough to notice, but not overly intense or cloying. Excellent start! The scent is reminiscent of warmed pineapple, making me dream of summer by the ocean (which I’m already missing).

The green rooibos base is lovely and the flavour has hints of pineapple, passionfruit, and even some sea buckthorn that come through subtly.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 5 min, 0 sec 3 g 14 OZ / 414 ML

What does sea buckthorn taste like to you? I’ve always been curious about it!

Courtney

I would say it has a tart, yet subtly fruity flavour, but more tart. :)

Thank you! I have a cookbook that includes it often as an ingredient, but I’ve never gotten around to finding sea buckthorn or trying any of the recipes.

Ooh exciting! And this sounds lovely, I really like green rooibos with tropical and fruity flavors. :3

Their international shipping is actually pretty reasonable. I may have to consider this one!

Bio

My partner and I live with our bunnies and cat. I’m currently working on my MSc in biology and enjoying tea along the way!

I love black tea and this is usually what’s in my mug.

I’m also happy to enjoy a cup of green or red rooibos (green preferable to red), herbals, oolongs (unroasted and red preferable to roasted), whites, and subtly flavoured greens.

Likes:
Raspberry, peach, rhubarb, passionfruit, and most fruits in general, maple, creaminess, hay, biscuit, lavender, and cacao/dark chocolate.

I enjoy bergamot when paired with flavours that mellow it (Camellia Sinensis Earl Grey Cream is one of my favourites).

Dislikes:
Any smokiness at all, stevia, too much blackberry leaf, rose, ginger (except in chai), cinnamon-heavy teas, anything cloying or fake/candy-like.

I’m vegan with an allergy to potatoes, so I avoid any animal products in tea, along with sprinkles as these often have potato starch (I usually just pick them out of blends).
