Thank you to QueenOfTarts for passing along a nice-sized sample of this! This is my first experience with The Persimmon Tree.
Upon opening the package, the leaf mixture smells sweet and caramely. I used 2 teaspoons of tea for 8 oz at the below parameters. The yellowish-brown liquor smells a tiny bit roasty and sweet. First few sips are toasty upfront, but end with the sweetness of caramel. Very interesting blend. I don’t really feel the need to put sweetener in this as it might overwhelm the toastiness of the tea, but I will for experience’s sake.
Post sweetener, the roastedness is much more muted, but the caramel really pops. Both ways are enjoyable! This is going on the shopping list!
Thanks again QueenOfTarts!
