I’ve had this tea for a while, but never got around to writing a review. It was purchased along with four other black teas from YS, many months ago. This one was always enjoyable prepared either western or eastern style. Not an amazing resteeper, but pretty flavourful.
This was my first “purple” tea experience. And overall it was a pleasant experience, but it definitely impressed my husband a lot more.
Here are some quick notes about my short steep session today:
First steep- Light, fruity (melon, grapes), refreshing. Acidic-sweetness at the back of my mouth.
Second steep- Fuzzy-fruit flavour all over my mouth, not a deep or heavy black tea body. Pretty light and delicate.
Third steep- The flavours have mellowed a bit, but much of the original notes are still present. For me, this is a nice cup to end on.
Steep parameters- 100ml teapot, 5g, 3 steeps (rinse, 30s, 40s, 1m)
