3 Tasting Notes
The moment I opened the package, a strong scent of fruity grape overcomes me. It took me awhile to identify the scent.. is it some berry scent? or is it pomegranate? After a moment i concluded it’s a grape scent, but strange thing was, grape was not a part of this tea! I was not expecting such a sweet fruity scent but since I generally enjoy fruit infusion tea, I really liked it. When dry it’s a light brown tea leaves with strands of cornflowers inside a triangle tea bag. When I brew it, the fruity grape scent remains just as intense and it filled the whole room with it’s beautiful fragrance. In my humble opinion, it’s not possible to over-brew this tea.. even if i soaked it in the teacup for a prolonged period, the darkest it gets is a light golden brew…
This is not a sweeten tea, but when I drink it, i felt there was a subtle hint of sweetness (most likely from its scent) with a touch of dry mouthfeel from the green tea. Very unique and enjoyable blend. Highly recommended!
This is one of my favourite tea. Super fragrant. The moment I open the cap, its fragrance permeates through the air. I like to steep it for a long time, so the flavour is really strong. I also don’t add anything to the tea as I like to enjoy it plain, which leaves a bitter dry mouthfeel with every sip. Only con is there is a lot of small broken tea particles at the bottom of the tin, so it might be better to use a new empty tea bag for the remaining tea leaves. If you like dry/bittery fragrant tea, you might like this!
Very yummy and hearty with a dollop of honey in it. Otherwise it’s barely palatable when drunk plain.
