Last year or perhaps the year before, Roswell Strange sent me a three month subscription to Handmade Tea. That means each month a package arrived with a large packet of tea and a wax envelope with the tea’s description. When it came to this tea, I decided to do a blind test and see how my tastes compared to what the company describes.

When I drank it, the tea tasted like a plain assam to me, as opposed to a flavored one. It was malty and smooth until the finish where it got a bit pithy and astringent. My guess was that was because of the “lime” element that I could not detect elsewhere. I also got notes of raisin and stonefruit with a drizzle of honey. I thought I detected creaminess which would have come from coconut but I didn’t get much in the way of coconut flavor.

See how my tastes compared to the company’s description and check out my full review here: http://sororiteasisters.com/2017/02/26/coconut-lime-from-handmade-tea/

Thank you Roswell Strange for the subscription!

I am so very grateful that the brief rainfall cleared the humidity and kept the neighbour children off that cursed trampoline. Those would be the other neighbours: not the ones with the shrieking baby and the at dawn exercise routine.

Yeah, I know—I must have done something truly horrible in a previous life.

I quite like this one though I was expecting a completely different set of flavours than those which arrived in my cup. The black base is pretty frisky. I had steeped it as per VariaTEA’s instructions at 4 minutes instead of my usual 2 minute black tea quickie. The lime here is earthy rather than bright. The coconut is missing altogether. Nice cup. If I tried it again, I would likely do a shorter steep.

Thanks, VariaTEA!

4 minutes is Handmade Tea’s recommended steeping. I usually steep for less time too.

It was very kind of you to write the steeping parameters on the packet. Sadly, I am one of those people who if someone takes the time to write something, I take that as an indicator of Please person, STEEP THIS AT 4 MINUTES. Crazy, huh? That’s why I don’t write steeping parameters, assuming that people will steep black the way they steep black, green the way they steep green and so on.

Evol Ving Ness

Imma disregard steeping parameters.

VariaTEA, I hope my comment did not in any way come across as critical. I was just being flippant and silly. Hope it came across that way.

VariaTEA

Hahaha no worries. I get it though I usually attempt to follow steeping parameters from companies unless they’re far outside my comfort zone. I figure the company makes the tea and in theory they should know how to best prepare it. So I thought it was best to share all the info I got from the company.

I usually forget to set my timer. So my steep times? not consistent, for the most part! >_<

Evol Ving Ness

Understood.

Sample from VariaTEA. This one is more lime than coconut lime. The base is smooth, hangs out in the background. this would probably be really nice iced in the summer with a little sweetness. thanks variatea!
