This one is from Teekanne Green & White 6×5 pack. I almost never buy tea bags, but this was a nice opportunity to try out few different teas for decent price. What confuses me with this one are steeping instructions: 100 Celsius, 3-5 min. I tried it their way, was terrible, now I’m going to do it my way.

This tea is rather murky with dull note to it. Aroma is better part though, I can sense something between mango and fermented watermelon. With first sip I feel its thin body ended with hint of astringency after swallowing. There isn’t much more to say about this cuppa, it doesn’t please nor punish my senses for sipping it, but it’s definitely better brewed on 82 rather than 100 Celsius.
I also note that as it cools it gets less astringent but it also gives you that dry mouth sensation, including tongue and throat. I think I’m pretty much finished with this one,.
