drank Lady Londonderry by Culinary Teas
294 tasting notes

I cold steeped this over night, the dry leaf smelled kind of fruity and sweet, but the wet leaf when I strained it this morning smelled like cough syrup: sweet and candy fruity, but medicinal and fake.

The aroma and front of the sip is medicinal, the middle sip isn’t too bad, sort of lemony and berry like, with the end of the sip taking on the medicine taste again. Coupled with the fact that I was drinking this out of a red plastic cup, my mind kept trying to tell me I was drinking cough syrup.

I think that the fact that I cold brewed this made the tea suffer, something that probably would have been fine in a traditional steep, became fake and medicinal in the 15 hour steep.
