Oh, this is a great iced tea! Just the right delicacy of the cherry flavor.

…I get no bergamot here, not to smell and not to taste. Nothing citrus. Nothing but a generic sort of green-tea taste. Well, and some bitterness when I tried steeping it longer in case that brought out more flavor.

Huh. This tastes like I stirred in a big spoonful of honey! It’s a very herbal-tea taste; I wouldn’t have said it had any tea-tea in it at all. It’s a very nice herbal tea, though, fruity without being tart, with the occasional tantalizing peppery note. I think I want more!

Yes, I was right: very light and lovely! I can see why Gingko compared it to a green style Tie Guan Yin — it’s got that same flowery sweetness to it. This one seems a bit earthier, but definitely in the same family. It only lasted through a few steeps, but it was really great while it lasted!

I mug-brewed two bits of this with a few wild purple chrysanthemum flowers, and it turned out very nice. The heaviness of this tea brought the chrysanthemums down to a more afternoon-tea level, I think.

However, here’s the crazy part: when I finished my mug, I took a look at the unfurled leaves, and then I went and got my camera and some fresh tea for a comparison shot:

How does that fit?!

Gah, trying to put in a tasting note via my phone is almost impossible. Plz to be having an Android app soon, yes?

Anyway: I like this tea a lot more mugbrewed. It gets bitter, but in a really juicy and pleasing way. Not at all a morning tea, but very nice at the end of the afternoon.

I like tea!

Since joining Steepster, it’s become apparent that this statement desperately needs further refinement.
