270 Tasting Notes
Love the smell of the leaf on this one. Makes me think of summer mornings when gramps would cook a massive amount of breakfast foods for us grandkids.
The aroma of the liquid is a bit bitter – you can tell it’s black tea. You can also tell that there is maple syrup dancing around in there.
Too bitter for me without sweetener. The addition of sweetener really rounds out the cup for me. It brings out the pancake taste and blends it nicely with the maple syrup :)
Breville – 3 tsp, 750 ml, black, medium
Second Steep – 750 ml, black, strong
Added some sweetener again. Milder, very pleasant, smooth
I love fall and today is a rainy fall day. That means tea and reading for this gal! I was surprised when I found this one in my green tea bucket. I have had this for a year. I received it fro my secret pumpkin last year! I wanted a whole pot today, which requires 5 tsp, according to the suggestions from Breville, in 1200 mls of water.
The dry leaf smells awesome with a dominant scent of spearmint. I did add a tad of sweetener. I am loving the mint mixed with the vegetal tones! A smooth and balanced tea
