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.
I am going to have to switch up my teas soon, because I am already running out of this one! A little bummed at the moment, because I can’t quite taste the gorgeous light raisin taste. This is not the teas fault, instead it is the fault of my taste buds. Yes, I have a cold. Despite not tasting as amazing as it normally does, it has a lovely color and it is nice and warm on my throat.
If you don’t have a cold, you must try this tea.
Just opened the package for this tea and it went straight into my teapot! After about 4 minutes steep time it was at a lovely honey color and smelled gorgeous. At first sip I didn’t taste too much. It was very light. After a few more sips though the golden raisin absolutely came out. I first tasted notes of honey, then it reminded me of molasses, which then led to raisins! Still enjoying it as I type this, but I can already tell how lovely this tea is! I might steep it just a little longer next time or add a couple of extra leaves for a slightly stronger taste.
Can’t wait for the next cup!
Needed to infuse much longer than I originally thought to get much of a flavor out of it. The 2nd infusion was infused about the same length but tasted much more like ginger and not in a very good way. This one seems to be a little touchy. If you’re careful I suppose it would be a good cup…so I will base it on my first attempt…
