This tea tastes a lot like lime. Which does make sense as it is called lime bang.
Have to say, that it smells great, kind of a kumquat smell
It has a really strong lime taste, that really hits you when you drink it. The sourness hits pretty fast and you taste some of the apple that’s inside. I don’t really taste the pineapple however just a lime green tea. Yet to try this iced but its pretty alright to drink, very fruity.
From what i can tell, this is a pretty low grade gunpowder tea, it is a bit over-roasted is some places and full of stems and broken leaves. There are whole leafs too and they are of the fairly big variety. There is tons of sediment, and the overall quality of this tea is not that great. Regardless however, it turns out a really nice green colour. The is a ton of lime peel as well but the problem is that the fleshy white side of the peel makes the tea slighty bitter sometimes regardless of steeping temperature.
I find it tastes best, 1st infusion @ 85 deg, then the second one with boiling water.
It wont turn the tea bitter and you will have a smoother tea on the second time around with a hint of sweetness (i’m guessing from the fruit pieces). I tried it with sugar on the first infusion, and i have to say, i prefer it without. I personally find the second infusion to be better than the first one, the lime is still there but the tea is much smoother and less bang, in-your-face taste the lime flavour. I would agree with the comment that says this tastes somewhat of a mojito, just without the mint.
