Here’s a tasting note to celebrate!! I just noticed sorting is working again after months! Awesome! I hope a lot of things are back to normal, because I’ve been noticing for a while now, if I post two tasting notes around the same time, both will show up in my tealog and the page for that tea, but it will not show up in the dashboard. Well, as long as they aren’t disappearing completely, I’m fine with it…
Another from the order – I definitely wanted to try this one! I was a little worried this wouldn’t be lime cola at ALL, but the leaves certainly have both a lime and cola fragrance and the FLAVOR is definitely there as well — both steeps! There are some big leaves here… not sure if that is the guayusa or the linden. I also made sure to include a big lime piece – rind and all. But there is a nice sweet lime and cola flavor… almost candy like. Certainly delicious. I could hardly taste the usually earthy guayusa itself, to those who are a little afraid of the guayusa flavor. But that could be due to the not-at-boiling steep. Maybe the flavor of the lime and cola dominate the cup. The flavor of this one exceeded my expectations with its perfect balance of lime and cola. I wouldn’t have minded taking a bigger risk with more than ten grams from the split order.
Steep #1 // 1 tsp (+ really big lime piece) // 20 min after boiling // 2 min steep
Steep #2 // 15 min a.b. // 3-4 min
