I used 2 David’s Tea Perfect Spoonfuls of dry leaf for my Aqua-ovo tea tumbler. There are some very large pieces of the dry leaf so I decided to add a little bit more than the recommended 1.5 scoops.
The brewed tea smell is similar to that of Sambuca which is an anise-flavoured liqueur.
The sip is a bit sour at the start which blooms into a vanilla-like sweetness. The coconut flavour gives a heaviness near the end of the sip, trailing into the aftertaste. I’m detecting some caramel-floral tones close to the end of the sip. The flavour of the white tea is mildy present and rounds out the taste.
As the tea cools, I am getting a bit more of the mulberry taste. It gives a light fruity taste. The sweetness of this tea is quite heavy and complements the rest of the flavours. I feel like most of the sweetness is coming from the coconut. I can detect a flavour that reminds me of liqueur.
It may be worth it to try infusing this tea for a longer amount of time in the future as other reviewers have recommended.
