Received a sample in one of my orders from The Persimmon Tree Tea Company.
There is another database for their teas here on Steepster under The Persimmon Tree as well.
Just sayin.

anyway .. strange thing is I get a mint flavor in this tea that is fairly strong.
Its not a tingle your tongue flavor but certainly picked up in the nostrils and on the mid part of the tongue.

The Persimmon Tree recommends a steep temp of 195 rather than 212.

This has a very bright juicy mouthfeel. I like that.

A robust tea though.

Not normally what I would be drinking at this time of day / night, but I was wanting to try something new from them.

There is a touch of a floral undertone in this tea but ever so delicate.

A nice black tea.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 30 sec

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/
Posted every evening at 6 EST.
I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
