First of all, I really decided to baby this tea, brewing at a pretty low temperature and for a rather short period of time to prevent any astringency. This is my first time trying this tea, so I’m be extra careful until I have time to experiment a bit with it.
This was a very different tea than I’m used to, with a very unique aroma and taste. The first infusion I had was very good, with a nice nutty flavor and a very pleasing warming sensation when drinking it. The taste of sweet nuts lingers on the hard palate of the mouth for a few seconds after swallowing, making this a very interesting tea to drink.
The second (and unfortunately last) infusion was also delightful. It was sweeter than the previous infusion, which complemented the nutty flavors very well. Other than that, it is pretty much the same as the first.
The final verdict on this tea is that it’s rather nice, but not particularly special. There is nothing that says “I’m unique!” about this tea, so I can’t justify giving it a higher rating. Also, I have no experience with this type of tea, so even though I like it a lot, I need to be a bit conservative here. Regardless, I’ll keep this tea in mind, and if I don’t find anything better, I might buy it again.
