drank Dots and Loops by August Uncommon Tea
2799 tasting notes

I didn’t expect to like this one so much, but it is actually one of the most unique and delicious blends I’ve had in a long time.

This is very heavy on the clove, some nice fennel, some vegetal but fruity notes (green apple). The black base is absolutely perfect for this blend. I used 2 tsp leaf in 500 mL cold water, 45 min steep. I appreciate how refreshing this is iced, but I wanted to comment how much I like the apple flavour. It is present, but it isn’t like green apple candy/apple skin from most green apple teas. I’ve always disliked green apple flavour, so I was pleasantly surprised at the flavour in this blend.

Flavors: Apple, Clove, Fennel, Fruity, Green, Tannin

Iced 8 min or more

I’m with you on the love for this one. Glad you enjoyed it! :)

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
