The TTB has arrived! So big, so many teas… no chance to try them all!
Living in landlocked country means that I have very limited experience to seafood and though it is getting slowly better in bigger cities, living in small town means it’s also hard to get any. I remember having some seaweed flavoured nuts, peanuts possibly and honestly I didn’t liked it at all.
So, when I saw this in the TTB, I have been very hesitant if I should try this. But considering that that most of the black teas there are sweet flavored, decided to go this way. Tea with seaweed. Seaweed taste scale on the bag shows low so possibly a good start.
I used two teaspoons for my 300 ml cup as always and steeped for 4-5 minutes as recommended by the vendor. On a first, hot sip, it was plain black tea with nice robust taste and I liked it. As it was cooling down, the seaweed was more prominent, with its salty taste, but nevertheless, it was just right level of its flavor. Certainly not overpowering the base, but ceratinly noticeable. Actually I liked this twist and right after I checked if there are other blends available to try more.
In fact, I haven’t found any international shipping info and their sampler is sold out, so maybe it’s not a time to order this tea now. Good for my wallet and cupboard.
Flavors: Malty, Salty, Seaweed
