Flavor Notes

Black Tea

Nothing beats the taste of black tea! Well maybe some Orange Picot tea, but I am jumping ahead of myself! Oops… the first of the teas, in my opinion and most used, besides Green tea 🙂

Black Tea leaves ready for brewing

My rate of use varies, depends on what I have in mind. Black tea is good as a solo, perhaps with add ins of cream and sugar, lemons, or other fruit. I find from .2% up to around 1% give or take, is spot on for a nice black tea.

If you would like to see my favorite recipe, using black tea.. it is none other than…

Reflecting on my recipe for Long Island Iced tea.. first.. raise the Blood orange, and Tequila Agave up to 1%.. yeps.. it’s really above my normal recipes as far as amounts.. but it won’t stick to your tank or dripper and give you that hard time to clean up when you change out to yet another juice.. so we are good there! I would say, raise that ice too, up to .4% for a really cold iced Long Island Tea, or go to .2% for a cool one.. as those 3 drops of ice, is just to chill it slightly.. Other than than all this.. it to me, is a perfected drink.. Cheers! 🙂
