627 Tasting Notes

I cold steeped this, as I do most all of my blacks, but it isn’t my favorite. It is flavorful, but I get a fairly prominent “soap” note that I usually only find with bergamot in earl grey. Others will like this for sure.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

I really enjoyed this. I always steep my greens pretty low temp, so it wasn’t bitter at all and the strawberry had time to take center stage. With a little sweetener, this makes a good iced tea.

I am really enjoying my new foray int4o mate. I had no idea it made such a great iced tea, which is what I did with this. Fruity and fresh, it goes well with a bit of sweetener.

I adore melon. Green rooibos is perfect for this because it gives it a freshness. I prefer this iced, with a bit of sweetener. Not much more to even say.

This was pretty good, considering I dislike artificial banana flavored things. But the flavor could be too mild for some.

Iced 8 min or more

Tasty as an iced tea, but I really couldn’t taste much mint, and I think more mint to help rival the berry and hibiscus flavors would really make this blend stand out.

This is very chocolatey, and the richness of the puerh does give it a more dark chocolate vibe without being bitter or lacking any creaminess. I am normally not super into chocolate teas (as I usually then just wish I had the real thing) but I was pretty pleased with this, and how it retained some flavor as I resteeped.

I wasn’t anticipating liking this much – but it is actually really spot on. Chocolatey, a bit sweet, and very smooth. A dash of milk might have me fooled for the real thing!

200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Not my favorite, but not the tea’s fault. I am not a fan of roasted tea, I’ve slowly learned. There is so much variety in tea, it takes me a long time to formulate strong preferences. It is naturally sweet though, which I like.

Now a certified teacher, beginning my first year in third grade this fall. I have been involved in the tea world about 5 years now. In that time, I have learned so much, and am hoping to learn even more by joining the steepster community.

In my non-tea times, I am usually watching netflix while writing lesson plans, cuddling my two kitties, or trying to find new things to do in a town that is sometimes a bit limited!
