This tea was a nice golden brown with the aroma of ginger, heh, and also some light citrus notes. On the tongue this is a pleasant non tannic tea, it has a light tart taste on the tongue and is very easy drinking. This is my first steeping of this tea, usually light teas like this don’t hold up as well to multiple steepings. So we shall see. A great second tea in the August steepster box.
2 Tasting Notes
Fresh out of the Steepster box, this too was the first tea I tried a cup of. I have had dragon pearls before and wasn’t in the mood for ginger.
The color I got was a great light honeyed brown at a steep time of 3m15s. I feel that the brew time is pretty spot on, getting a light tannin on the finish, leaving some nice mouth watering, but not so tannic that it is unpleasant.
As far as smell and sight I’m still learning more about properly evaluating and describing them. I had this with no sugar or additives. It was very mellow on the front and side of the tongue indicating not much sour or sweet tastes to it. There was a brief honey scent on the nose with some grassy and earth aromas.
