These pearls arrived in a beautiful tin which was a good start to this tea. The pearls aroma was silky smooth and I have been anticipating this tea since before I ordered it.
On my first pot, I let it steep for 1:45 and the tea came out with a hint of bitterness. Although delicious, it tasted a little burnt.
On my second infusion, I lowered the time to 1 minute and the water temp to around 190 and it was much better but still not perfect.
Third infusion was also a little bitter but I wasn’t sure if it was the time, or the temperature.
I made this tea multiple times adjusting the amount of pearls, time, temperature, and covering the pot, and I got it right a few times where the taste was just perfect.
I want to give this tea a solid 95 for taste, but it is just so delicate and needs to be absolutely perfect to come out right. If any mistake is made, the punishment is harsh.
