I love persimmons, so I had to buy this even though it’s made from persimmon leaves and not the fruit. When you open the package, it smells like a greenhouse or a botanical garden. A nice smell, but not necessarily what I want in a tea.
I accidentally brewed it for several minutes longer than intended, but that was probably for the best since the last time I made it I didn’t think it tasted like much of anything. This time it actually has a taste, if not an overwhelming one. It tastes pretty leafy and green, with maybe a tiny hint of fruitiness. It’s not an exciting tea, but it’s not bad.
