This one is from my Secret Santa Ross Duff. Thank you, Santa!
This is such a nice change of pace for me! I was expecting it to taste Dragon Ball-ish (pastry, cinnamon) but it doesn’t taste anything like that! It tastes like raspberries with a fresh, vegetal quality somewhere in there. That part is subtle – almost like a leafy green stem of a raspberry got in there. I love it! So sweet and enjoyable. 2 minutes is just about perfect for the first steep. Smooth, no bitterness. I expect at least 3 steeps from these leaves!
…and speaking of the leaves, I have to note how dramatic and gorgeous they are! Long, twisted, and dark before steeping, and once you steep them they are enormous!!!!!
What a fantastic treat! I would purchase this tea on my own in a heartbeat. Thanks again, Ross!
