Now on to the regularly scheduled programming, TEA REVIEWS!
Like I said I stumbled upon this blend after talking to Joey for quite a bit about his invention. We got on the topic of blogging, and VOILA, I had a few samples in my bag to take home! This is the first one i've reviewed so far. His Silk Dragon is an oolong based blend that contains lemon myrtle and marigold petals.
Upon opening the package, smells of earl grey, vanilla, cream, and ripe fruit emanated from the pouch. The vanilla, cream, and fruit I was expecting. The earl grey threw me for a loop.
The leaves were a nice dark forest green with bright yellow petals mixed in. The leaves themselves are loosely rolled.
I brewed 16 oz of water with 2 tsp of leaves at 185º for 3 minutes. The liquor brewed up to be a bright golden color with a very clean hint of caramel in the nose. The flavor was light and floral, slightly citrusy, but smooth and clean. Very delicate flavor with more caramel hints.
Overall, a very delicious cup. Nice and light but well rounded and perfect before bed or after a big meal! I need to go out and get more of this just for that reason! I'm looking forward to tasting some of his other blends!
