I got a chance to revisit this with purified water and a higher leaf to water ratio with a shorter steep time. Yay!

It was definitely sweeter. I got more of the woodiness and less of the fruit, but the flavors were consistent through the entire taste, whereas before I was mostly getting an aftertaste. I thought I tasted some citrus as well, but more like the aftertaste of a lime than the lime itself. Then again, I’ve been thinking everything tastes like citrus recently.

Definitely a yummy tea! Mild and smooth and lovely in the afternoon.

A friend once asked me, if I could have anything in the world, what would I want? I immediately answered, “Superpowers, specifically superspeed like the Flash.” He said that didn’t count because it wasn’t real, so my second choice was a cupboard full of every flavor of tea in existence. He promptly told me that that was a waste of a wish and said he would ask for the world’s biggest yacht.

But the more I think about it, the more I’m sure that I made the better choice. Slowly saving up money for higher quality teas is helping to convince me. Off I go to taste as many teas as I possibly can (and maybe dream about superpowers along the way).
