Refreshing cold brew with a profile that, to me, complemented late summer weather out here in the North Bay, so basically up to the end of October.
Made the very last bit of leaf this morning with hot water from the work dispenser, cooled for 5 or so minutes before steeping.
Smelled just like a peach cobbler. Guessing the peach was coming from the green tea itself as peach is not an added flavor. I couldn’t pin down the base character beyond its alkalinity. It was something like stewed moss with lima beans and seashells?? Togo mentioned mussels in a recent review for another tea and now that’s where my mind is going. Sounds so weird but throw in those soft touches of floral-sweet cinnamon, basil and lime and you have a well rounded and balanced tea. Two good steeps and forgiving of brew time. I’d buy this again!
