Before tasting this tea, I was just a tea drinker. This turned me instantly in a tea lover, into someone who searches for tea, who wants to deepen his knowledge and open new tasting horizons.
This is a very sweet tea without, as far as I know, any flavorings added. The leafs are rolled into little beads and when infused uncurl to nice healthy and thick complete leaves. Very green and quite large, the leaves can be infused several times (4-5) and reveal their taste without loosing any quality. After that, much longer steeps are needed.
The taste is very milky, close to milk candy. Hints of fresh sugar cane being chewed also come to mind. The color is a soft yellow, close to dried hay.
Asiatica seems to be fairly new in Montréal, Quebec as their site pops as “coming soon”. Their products are all packed in round metal tins with two caps. I haven’t found them in lots of places but IGA seems to sell some from time to time.
