68 Tasting Notes
I am trying this tea for the first time.
The loose leaf tea contains small sugar crystals, which makes it nice to look at. The scent is noticeably cherry without being overpowering. When brewed, the tea has a light flavor, but not dull like some other decaffeinated teas can be. The flavor profile is there, but on the delicate side. A bit of milk in the tea is nice as well.
I am trying this tea for the first time, using water just off the boil.
My first impression is that it’s quite different. I can understand why it has such wildly different review scores: there is an undercurrent of salted cherry three leaves that is quite different, and can be puzzling if you haven’t tasted them before. For me, the saltiness does indeed provide a clean taste, as described by Lupicia. It’s not my favorite flavored green tea, but it is a nice one nonetheless.
