Recent Tasting Notes
The strawberry is the strongest flavor and overwhelms the other flavors with tartness. Adding a bit of sugar tamed the tart but I still don’t really taste any of the other flavors. It just seems like a weak brew of strawberry. (I brewed for just under 3mins as the description stated). That being said, for anyone that actually enjoys herbals, this might not be too bad.
ETA: As it cools, I’m getting more of what might be the raspberry green after the initial strawberry taste.
This tea has a non descript aroma when in the tin. I steeped 2.25g of tea leaves in 6oz purified water heated to 175 degrees F for 3 min. and I’m glad I didn’t steep it any longer. It does have a pale yellowish green liquor as the description states, but that’s where the accuracy ends. There is nothing fruity about this tea at all. I did not sweeten this. I became leary about this tea even before tasting it. It smelled of dirt. Sure enough, it tastes like a very weak pu erh, kind of like I dropped a good tasting green tea on the ground. I’m not sure this tea would appeal to anyone. If you don’t like pu erh, you won’t like this tea. But then again if you like pu erh this may be too weak for you. If you like pu erh maybe steep it for 5 mins like a black tea. I normally like to try all teas both hot and chilled and see how many infusions I can get before the flavor dies, but I’m not brave enough to try this a 2nd time no matter how it’s prepared.
I was REALLY excited about this because I can’t stand most sweetened tea. I was just as disappointed. I got a bottle as a free sample from Adagio w/ one of my purchases and I’m glad I didn’t have to pay for it. There was an odd taste I couldn’t place. Maybe peaches? But I like peach white or green peach tea. This wasn’t good. It says they added vitamin C to it and I think that was the mistake. If it’s not broken, don’t fix it.
