I’ve only ever had bamboo in savory applications so a sweet fruity bamboo should be interesting. Since everyone is saying that this tea is light, I was wondering how much leaf to put in, but I didn’t have to wonder long since I accidentally spilled some onto the floor and was left with what seemed like a little more than I’d want to use for one mug. Cool!
The liquid is lightly colored and it smelled a bit earthy and strawberry-y. I didn’t find the flavor too light, but I like light teas. There’s a hint of peppercorn and a strawberry finish. Very nice. There’s a character to the taste that I can’t describe. It reminds me of earth, not because it tastes like earth but because it is solid and grounding. I wouldn’t describe it as refreshing, but it is complex and tasty.
Strawberries always win.
Thanks for another great sample DaisyChubb.
