drank Ceylon Emerald by teakruthi
1104 tasting notes

I have decided to brew this one on the gloomy morning.

It smells wonderful, very tropical, sweet and fresh.

I brewed two teaspoons in 300 ml and 80°C water and I have used ball strainer. That’s not the best as the pieces of tea are quite big and thus can’t grow completely.

But in taste it wasn’t that perfect. It has got a quite mineral and typical green Ceylon tea taste. As well quite drying unfortunately. On the other hand, the fruity notes are delightful and well present — mostly as an aroma: very tropical and I noticed mostly pineapple and strawberry. Hints of mango as well. In taste mostly pineapple and the base. Quite unimpressed overall, maybe the notes of base were too strong for me. But I can imagine drinking it iced or cold brewed! Maybe I had just unlucky spoons.

Flavors: Drying, Mango, Mineral, Pineapple, Strawberry, Tropical

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 10 OZ / 300 ML

There’s a Lucky Spoon Bakery in Utah, so I think the name is taken already.
