101 tasting notes

I tried this tea in store and thought it was okay, so I decided to purchase a small bag for at home to get myself in the “Christmas spirit”. It’s a nice tea – I’m normally not a fan of fruit in tea. The star anise was a nice touch – It created this fruity, spicy, cinnamon-y concoction that was actually pretty good! AND it was festive!

BUT

I bought 25g and it barely made two cups. VERY heavy tea. Not worth a re-buy in my opinion on this alone. This should have also been blended with a rooibos or something that can handle the temperatures needed to steep fruit to get the flavours wanted. Greens go bitter when the water is too hot so in a way this tea was fickle to brew.

Preparation

How the story goes is that one day, a feeble, weakened graduate student decided to stop ingesting so much caffeine and additives (sugar, cream, milk) and instead headed for the land of tea.

I should probably mention that I’ve been drinking tea… pretty much since I can remember. The beauty of growing up in a still-semi-Euro family! I was introduced to green teas and pu’erhs by herbalists and acupuncturists in my teens.
