80

Day 10 & 22 of the Clipper advent calendar. I brewed this at 185f, for probably too long, but the long steep didn’t seem to do any harm. The raspberry flavor in this is absolutely on point. There’s also a savory sort of note that’s probably the white tea. It’s not very well defined but also doesn’t really feel like it’s missing? I don’t really go to supermarket bagged teas looking for complex base teas – that’s just not a very likely finding or realistic expectation. So with that expectation, I quite enjoyed this. If it were a flavored loose leaf, I’d probably be asking more questions about where the white tea base is. I would much prefer to enjoy it for what it is, though.
