I picked up this one as a sample a few orders back and figured I should take the time to run through a few steepings of this one since i’m at home today and exausted. I didn’t think i’d enjoy this one too much but i’m open to trying as many teas as possible. First off, the scent of this one dry is wonderful! I really enjoyed that first scent that creeps out when you open the bag.
After running through a few steeps of this tea, i can safely say that i don’t hate this tea, but I don’t love it either. David has done a wonderful thing with this tea, blending the flavours together so that they ebb and flow through the tastings, changing ever so slightly as you get through a sip and then an entire steeping. What i don’t like about this tea is the dryness my mouth feels after drinking it.
Not for me, though I’m happy to have tried it and enjoyed my tasting with it.
