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.

I’m also glad you enjoyed this one, I love it too. You know, lately I’ve been finding black teas really harsh and turning to white and other ‘lighter’ teas and finding them full flavoured! What’s up with that? :)

Hmm. Maybe your palate is becoming more sensitive? I also used to like black teas but I find them harsh now as well. Maybe it comes with age. :D I hope you’ll still be able to enjoy all that black tea I sent you!

Personally, I go through phases. At one point I wanted nothing but chai, another was all about herbals and yet another was a devotion to unflavoured blacks. I would be heart-broken if I didn’t love black tea anymore…I have so many!!

I still need it in the morning to wake up haha

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
