596 Tasting Notes

This tea demonstrates how changing preparation methods can result in a dramatically different tea. Conventional steeping in a regular teapot will result in a light honey-like tea. But when prepared in a gaiwan, this tea really comes into its own with serious notes of jasmine, lavender, and clementine oranges.

Don’t be afraid of this tea: Hotter water seems to work best, and brings out malty notes.

Yes it is rather bitter (try multiple short steeps to deal with this) but it does make me feel a lot better. This is what I drink every night before bedtime.

One of the best flavored teas I have ever had. Naturally sweet with no sugar added. Orange, cinnamon, clove…great iced or hot.

Really scrumptious Indian green. Vegetal and sweet at the same time.
