The name of this tea made me think it was an herbal tea, so I let it steep for a long time. Oops…my bad. The resulting brew came across, no surprises here, very herbally. I finished it, but it was a little too much for me. Surprisingly, I found no bitterness.

The second steep I dropped the water temp and steep time. Much better. I didn’t detect the herbals. What I tasted was olive oil?!

I have enough to have another go at this. I’ll treat the first steep better the next time.

Thank you TheLastDodo for the sample!

My tea journey started in 2012, when a friend gifted me some loose leaf. I guess she thought I was drinking too much coffee. Blown away by the amazing flavours I immediately embraced the loose leaf tea. I still drink coffee, but my main choice of beverage is now tea.

My tea preferences are blacks, pu’erhs, oolongs and greens.
