I like this tea. It does not blow me away, but the taste is pleasant and light, perhaps slightly fruity. I’m not sure I get the grape and pear that the website suggests is present but that could be my palate rather than the tea itself. Note to self: drink more tea more carefully and develop my palate!

Edit:
Steep number three and there it is. Definite hint of grape and pear. I steeped this one at 65 degrees instead of the 70 degrees I was using before. It has significantly improved the definition of the flavour and the aftertaste as well as increasing the latter’s duration.

Preparation
150 °F / 65 °C 1 min, 30 sec

Bio

I am a historical consultant, Vikingologist and tea enthusiast! To be honest, I have always liked decent tea, but in 2011 I started working at learning what good tea really is. I continue to expand my horizons and discover new teas with the aid of my chums on Steepster, much to the chagrin of my wife, who despairs of my enthusiasm.

My favourite teas are Darjeelings, sheng puerhs and Anji Bai Cha. I return to these every time, after whatever flirtation with other teas I have been involved with.

I no longer rate the teas I drink because keeping ratings consistent proved to be rather hard work while not really giving me anything in return.
