Malwa Tea

Recent Tasting Notes

strong, slightly artificial pear scent out of the bag, which definitel tones down as it steeps to a pale yellow liquor. I can smell green tea as it steeps.

The pkg said to use boiling water (100 celsius) but mine was not quite, as I didn’t want to scorch green tea, and figured the flavoring would come out anyway. Still, there’s a bit of a burnt smell underneath it.

On first sip, I get a slight sweetness from the pear that doesn’t quite mask the slightly bitter/oversteeped green tea. The aftertaste is bitter and drying to the mouth. I guess the water was too hot…

No more European herbal teas for me today, they’re just not working out. At least I’m cleaning out my cupboard :-/
