This is one of the most beautifully scented teas I have come across. It smells of the tropics and lightness. It’s really pretty.

I wasn’t sure what to do with the steeping information. Should I go with black recommendations? Or should I go with green? I went with black. Boiling/2 min – Well, actually one, tasted, then dropped back in for another minute.

After steeping one minute, the scent was still there, only less tropical, more subdued. After the second minute, the scent of fruit was barely there and it smelled like black tea. Nice black tea, but not the fruity experience I’ve been searching for this morning.

The taste after one minute wasn’t very developed. I could most definitely taste a guava/papaya taste in the tea. The tea itself wasn’t very strong, which is why I tried another minute.

After two minutes, the fruitiness had mostly dissipated and I was left with an interesting tea flavor that was slightly bitter. It, surprisingly, wasn’t terrible, but as I’m looking for something else this morning, I’m not going to continue with it this morning. I’ll have to experiment more with this tea later. Temp, time… who knows what the magic combination is?

I’ve always been a tea lover. When I lived in France during college, I really loved the tisanes. Over the past couple of years, I’ve branched off into loose teas. I’m not very knowledgeable about teas, but I’m really loving the learning process!
