I’m trying (yet again) to get back into reviewing teas on Steepster. I love the community and always miss this place :)
One of the reasons I’m trying to get back in is because I bought a new milk frother to make tea lattes with! I’m a sucker for London Fogs and want to try replicating those at home. I saw a review on the milk frother that said this tea was a great way to do just that! I was excited to see that Stash had a loose leaf version and bought that, not realizing I was buying an entire pound of tea that I had never tried before!
I brewed this today with my amateurly frothed milk (definitely needs practice!). I was getting Earl Grey bergamoty flavors, as well as a kind of floral perfumey bitterness. I’m not sure if I got a bit too much lavender or steeped it too long or what! I added some simple syrup and that smoothed out the bitterness but covered up the lavender.
Now that it’s cooled off to a kind of lukewarm temp, I’m getting more lavender as well as a more distinctly orange flavor. I have a whole pound of this tea to get through so I’m looking forward to playing around with it! Maybe I’ll even try to get into baking and cooking with tea!
Flavors: Citrus, Floral, Lavender, Orange
