Received as a sample with my last order. The (over) use of lemon grass produces a smell reminiscent of lemon scented cleaner. It lacks a fresh flavor, tastes artificial. Wasn’t able to even finish the pot. Sadly, it’s going to take some hard work to remove the smell from my pot :( …won’t miss it when it’s gone…
I’m trying to play catch up today. I finished off my tin of this making a cold brewed iced tea. It’s quite good cold brewed, no trace of bitterness and just a hint of orange. I’m definitely going to buy some more of this tea, I think I miss it already! I brewed it overnight in the fridge.
Yesterday as I went to my dentist appointment in the afternoon, the thermometer in the car said the temperature was 80 degrees! With this temperature to inspire me, I’m going to start trying a lot of my teas iced. I cold brewed this one all day in the fridge, and it was really good! I was able to get a second glass of tea from the same leaves as well. It was very mellow when cold brewed. You could tell the orange was there, but it was almost subliminal.
I will probably be preparing this tea again as a cold-brewed iced tea.
I bought a tin of this without sampling first, so it’s a relief to find out that I really, really like it. The orange is there, but is very subtle. I’m not that experienced at this stuff, so I can’t judge the flavor of the tea base, but it has a golden kind of flavor.
I got this to go in one of those travel mugs with an infuser. It is supposed to stand up to multiple infusions, etc, so I’m looking forward to trying it that way. I’m not quite ready to use the travel mug. I’m not sure why. I guess I’m wondering what kind of attention it will recieve at my workplace (large public high school.) It’s clear and they’ll be able to see that there are leaves.
A tea listed as #2 on the Chinese top 10 list.
Truly full of surprises as, after opening my first bag, I was a bit sceptical when I saw the little leafs.
Chestnut was the first thing that hit my senses.Very, very complex tea from the Jiang Su province in China that, as always with Chinese teas, is changing faces, mood and caracter between the first and the last brew of one portion.
Always a bit special and I cant help feeling that, whenever I drank a brew, that I have wasted it to the wrong occassion. This tea should be called ‘little prima donna’…
I got a sample of this with my Teas Etc order. Like most rooibos, it has a coffee kind of vibe to it (at least to these tasebuds!) and that leads me to add creamer and sweetner. This has a nice mint flavor with just a hint of chocolate. I’m debating whether or not to order it again. I like it, but I’m not sure that I would want it often enough. I do need some non-fruity caffeine free options for evenings.
