I made this again, this time a cold steep, and this is sadly still not a tea for me.

The cold steep is still quite bitter, as a steepsterite mentioned to me, there is a lot of pith in here somehow. And very strangely maybe there is a touch of cinnamon here? a hint of a spice, lurking in the cold infusion? I sweetened this a lot, iced tea seems to call for it, and it does improve the tea a bit, but still a frustrating tea for me.

It wasn’t a tea for me neither Teresa.

It is an interesting idea though. Glad I only got 50 grams! (thanks to you).

I got to tell you about Route du Temps though, but I must make it again, for a proper taste note and it´s hot (hot is overrated) and I am being wary of caffeine so it might take me a while longer to do a proper taste note of it.

I’m looking forward to get your opinion about Route du Temps Teresa.

I finally wrote a note! It is a very unusual tea IMO, but one I unexpectedly liked very much.

I had fun on that airport shop – it was small, but they did not mind I opened every sample tea. I thought of you, they had The de Paques en vrac, and I also got (for myself) Rouge Opera en vrac which they did not have in the Marais shop except in tins. Though that was a dud, it turned out.

Bio

Inconstant tea drinker – I mostly drink tea when not too hot. I hang around steepster much more frequently in (northern hemisphere) cold season. Experimenting with cold steeping, for summer.

- Teas -

I like all sorts of tea, flavoured and unflavoured, though I am picky.

I am one of those people who actually loves Lapsang Souchong. I am not crazy about Earl Grey, in general. I don´t quite get Darjeeling teas, but I am exploring.

I like rooibos, though not all bases. I loathe hibiscus. I do not like fennel/liquorice/anise in blends or teas with chicory. I am picky about what I consider true cinnamon.

As you can probably tell from my cupboard, the brands I find more interesting right now are Mariage Fréres and Thé-o-Dor.

I am always willing to try anything new. I am now particularly interested in single origins.
