Whenever I hear the word “Bamboozled” I think of the episode of Friends when Joey is auditioning for the game show of the same name. The dry leaf here is all about peach and pineapple, especially peach. There is also a strange underlying damp sort of vegetal scent, I’m guessing from the bamboo? It just doesn’t seem right though.
I’m running into the same problem when steeped. While peach is in the spotlight, I’m detecting the same sort of cellar-like vegetal undertone in the taste. As my mug is cooling, I’m getting the same sensation that other reviewers have experienced. It’s a cooling, green sensation that freshens up the experience a bit, but the undertones are still weirding out my taste buds. Perhaps this is more promising iced.
