Dry leaf nose: Refreshing ginger with slight orange notes.

Liquor: Very bright, greenish-gold, clear liquor. Nice ginger aroma.

Flavour: Sweet with ginger and licorice, the green tea tempers the sweetness and adds a note of its own. The orange is present in the cup but not prominent. The peppercorn adds a zest. Rosehips finish the blend with a fruity afternote.

How strong is the licorice? I’m not a huge fan of it, though in blends like Secret Weapon, it isn’t very prominent and I can tolerate it.

DAVIDsTEA

Not very strong. The ginger is definitely the most prominent flavour, with the licorice adding a little sweetness to the tea.

drank Fired Up Fennel by DAVIDsTEA

Dry leaf nose: Aromas of fennel and anise, with a light sweetness and a hint of chili.

Liquor: Golden clear.

Flavour: Very sweet and medium bodied. Strong fennel and anise flavour with a sweetness added from the licorice. The chilies make the liquor hot and spicy, especially if you get a whole one in the steep. Very interesting: feels soothing, yet hot on the throat and palate.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 6 min, 0 sec

drank Sencha Ashikubo by DAVIDsTEA

David’s favourite.

It’s no surprise that David steeps a pot of this beautiful Ashikubo green each morning. With soft notes of fruits and an almost buttery undertone, this is one of the most prized teas in our collection.

Starting at 30 seconds, try resteeping this tea in 30 second intervals to optimize the experience. Each additional infusion brings forth an array of new scents and flavours, making it the perfect tea to begin experimenting with reinfusion.

Definitely a must have in any collection.

170 °F / 76 °C 1 min, 15 sec
