This tea is bizarrely alien. Vanilla and eucalyptus with a berry note rose from the bag. I have to write another paper for work, and I have an emergency. I know that I’m running my stash low. But I need more tea.
I brewed for a little bit and it was the usual white tea color. Near four minutes, the tea turned into a highly translucent aqua green color. The smell was like vanilla and what I’m going call fermenting grain, almost like a beer.
I taste it, and damn. I’ve tasted very few teas like this, and the few I refer to are from Lauren. You can definitely tell this is a white tea with it’s natural creamy and light texture. But the liquor is really sweet. It is practically a candy laced with vanilla and a lighter eucalyptus taste. I ‘m also tasting a bit of grain and something that I want to call blueberry, but isn’t. It’s almost sour. I’m guessing that’s the brandy.
It still smells strong, and I’m brewing it two more times to get more out of it.
I still am sore about Eggnog Poundcake and wanting more of that, but I HIGHLY recommend a try of this just because of how unique it is. I’m really not sure how else to describe this tea, and I don’t know if the berry taste is accurate, but that’s the best way that I can think of describing the other sweet aspect of this. The longer you steep it, the bluer it gets.
