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.
