Citrus addict in me had to try this tea.
It smells like lemon zest with subtle dark tones.
Steeped and hot it smells like a lemon infused unsweetened Orange Pekoe.No real intense earth tones like you would normally expect in a pu’erh.
It is dark looking liquid in a typical pu’erh way,however this one is more red then brown.
It looks in fact like a long steeped orange pekoe.
I usually am overpowered by the earthy taste of Pu’erh so I’m hoping this one has a more delicate touch.
Taste wise it’s really lovely light and refreshing.
It has a lovely touch of zesty citrus and surprisingly no familiar Pu’erh taste.

I stand by my assessment of this being a properly lemony unsweetened Orange Pekoe.

Need the pekoe without the work of zesting or squeezing lemons? Like pekoe that is sweet without being sweetened?want a perfect properly tasting iced tea?

well this is it.

Next time:Iced.

this is the new designer Orange Pekoe.

However though I love Licorice I’m not sure about it’s little bite in this tea.

My first bag of this smelled super fishy and tasted the same way. And it was yucky brown coloured. Talked to someone at the store and they gave me a second bag and it was better but I don’t get citrus at all from it and it is still slightly brown in colour. I think maybe Bayshore got a bad batch of this one. Still fishy smelling. UGH
