I picked up this tea from a small teashop in Vancouver’s Chinatown after being offered a sample and being impressed with its strong flavour (being a person who often finds fruit flavoured teas smell lovely, and don’t taste like a whole lot). While it is called Plum Green Tea I’ve always associated the taste more with green melon, and after serving it to several friends I can say this is definitely a love it or hate it flavour. This is a tea that required no additions, especially not sugar/honey, I find the plum flavour to be sweet enough as is, and becomes especially strong as the tea cools.
I find this is one tea you don’t want to over-steep as it can quickly develop an overpowering bitter note that along with the fruit taste can cause unpleasant mouth-puckerage. Mind you I also tend to forget what sort of tea I’m making and pour boiling water over this poor green tea which might account for the tendency towards bitterness. This is a nice tea for people who enjoy green teas, strong fruit teas and especially sweet melon/plum flavours.
