I’ve been looking for a plum flavored tea tasting of ripe, juicy plum for some time now. Unfortunately, my disappointment continues with this sample. The dry tea contained pieces of fruit which purhaps spoke to the slightly fruity scent to the leaves but which neither appeared in the liquor nor persisted in the spent leaves.
After following the steeping recommendations to the letter, I experimented further but was unable to coax any flavor other than that of an ok black tea from leaves. Given that is was a recently received 2oz sample (from Amazon<2weeks) which remained sealed until sampled – I have to conclude that it was inadequately flavored, not inadequately handled by me – so the hunt must continue.
