Water: 17oz

Leaves: white/black small twisted leaves

Steep: 4m

Aroma: sweet,citrus, orange

Color: Copper

Clarity: Great!

Taste:The aroma of this tea is great upon opening the packet i noticed a huge piece of tangerine peel surrounded by the white tea leaves. Although i can say these looked different from other leaves i seen in the past they were much darker. As with the last tea this time i used the whole packet. Once brewed it was now time for a taste this is where i probably went wrong b/c I found this tea to be bitter & lacking flavor. Maybe i used too many leaves? After a few more sips the bitterness fades & i can’t pinpoint the flavor. There is also a bitter after taste left on the tongue when finish. Over all didn’t like this tea.

It’s a pity that this tea can’t meet your taste bud, actually it’s sweet and mild in taste. May I know what method you brew it, and how about the temperature?

I used my french coffee press with 17oz of water. I bought my water to a boil then allowed it to cool for 1 minute before pouring over the tea leaves. I used 1 silver packet of the tea & allowed it to steep for 4minutes.

If it is still to be bitter & lacking flavor, I suggest you can use Gaiwan to brew it next time.

I really got into tea early(2013). I’m happy I stumbled upon Steepster because I’ve been able to learn soo much more! Before I drank my tea from tea bags never really venturing out to try loose tea.

I’m apart of Teavivre Free tasting activity,I joined after making my first purchase with them.
Thank you Angel & Teavivre
