I assume this is now called Mandarin Creme as the ingredients are the same.
Except my tin states “pouchong”, and both descriptions under the two names of this tea say it’s oolong. I don’t know what pouchong is but rest assured I’m going to google it once I’m done this review!
Soooo my Persimmon Tree order arrived today. I had posted a comment on their Facebook wall complaining (politely of course) that their crappy shipping options for Canada meant that for 1 oz of tea (added to my cart to determine shipping fees) it would be $28 at the CHEAPEST to ship to me.
Anyway they responded immediately, apologized, gave me a free shipping code and added a new shipping option for $15 to Canada which is totally reasonable as their teas come in tins!
Yay! So I ordered three teas and a sample of a fourth. I had to share the story because good customer service should not go unacknowledged. And I am pleased to report that the teas I ordered are awesome! Thank you, Persimmon!
This was so good. It’s creamy and flavorful yet light, and the tea base is also noticeable, delicate and delicious! I ordered the smallest tin of this and am thinking perhaps I should have got the larger size! Soooo good. It’s flavoured but not overwhelmingly so, and there’s no unnatural taste whatsoever. That is all. Yum.
180 degrees for 2-3 min, as I wasn’t sure what pouchong was, haha.
