1 tbsp used for 375 ml

A little astringent. Jasmine is not overpowering and balances well with the fruity passion-fruit flavour.

I think that this tea must have lost some flavour in transit.

:( That’s unfortunate. Btw, I’d suggest splitting future samples into unflavoured/mildly flavoured/strongly flavoured to prevent contamination. I’m very glad that I took some strongly flavoured things (e.g. cloves, cinnamon, mint) away from my other samples, bc otherwise I think they would have all tasted like that. I’m not gonna offer you another sample of this from my bag, because I’m currently very possessive of it, but when I order more in the future (it’s a when), remind me and you’re welcome to have some, with minimal transit time :)

That’s a good idea! I was using two boxes to transport but I guess I could have used another. There were one or two in the mildly/non-flavoured box that accidentally got away from me and made friends with some of my more delicate teas! Don’t worry about another sample- I have so many more to try!!

(Oh, don’t worry – your sample was entirely from Sil. I’m just saying that although I don’t think she’s going to order more, I will be!)

drank Paradise Green by Lupicia

1 tbsp for 248 ml

Smooth taste and mouthfeel. No astringency. Floral tone in background near after aftertaste. Fruity note most like a creamy papaya but it is a lot fainter than what I’d like. Presence of green tea with a slight vegetal hint.

1.5 tablespoons for 375 ml

A little astringency. Authentic plum aroma. Marshmallow aftertaste. Sencha base flavour comes through. Odd sharp metallic/pungent/slightly swampy note that has a zinging sensation on the tongue.

Dilute flavour. Slight creaminess. Sugary aftertaste. Lime flavour throughout. I would prefer this flavouring with a green tea base.

Maple syrup or marshmallow-like sweetness. Lavender is stronger than the bergamot but I enjoy the balance of the two. No excessive astringency.

A little too astringent. I think that I must have used too much leaf. I should use only 1 tbp for 375 ml in the future. Good strawberry flavour.

1.5 tablspoons for 375 ml

Slight clove and cherry flavour contamination from being close to other teas in transit (my own fault). I am detecting the mineral flavours that comes off as a sort of sweetness. Savoury tones. Warm nutty flavours. Caramel tone. Slight fruity sweetness. Slight vegetal tone in the mix.

Second infusion at 5 minutes. Hojicha-like straw aroma/taste. At the end of my cup I could taste the grape-fruity flavour that I’ve found to associate with oolongs.

Good cherry flavour. Slight clove flavour contamination from a tea it was sitting beside in transit (my own fault). Smooth black tea base. Slight creaminess.
