Again, a tea from my recent swap with Courtney! Thanks!
This tea sounds pretty promising, but I’m not terribly familiar with the Chun Mee base… something makes me think it’s a bit smoky, which would be a bit weird, but I guess I’ll find out.
The tea smells pretty fruity (tropical fruit combo, like banana/pineapple), and once lukewarm, tastes fairly fruity as well. The green tea is a bit smoky, as opposed to vegetal… it’s a bit different to get used to, but I’m finding that the more I drink, the more I’m appreciating it as “not sencha”, and something different and tasty. The aftertaste is great, too.
I’m actually pretty impressed with this tea, and hopefully will also try it iced shortly (I don’t think I’ll try a cold-brew… greens always end up too astringent for me when I try that). It seems like it would make a perfect, fruity iced tea!
