A light, refreshing tea, very rosy in color. I got two good cups (10 oz each) out of one sachet. This tea was given to my cousins as a gift, and the packaging was almost entirely in Korean. (They read Chinese fluently, but could not figure out what kind of tea this is.) As they drink nothing but Yunnan, and I am interested in tasting things, I took several sachets home to try. Pear notes predominate, and there are pieces of candy in it, which are apparently called Konpeito. This is new to me, but I normally choose only unflavored, unblended teas. Pear happens to be the one fruit flavor I like in tea, so I will enjoy offering this tea to guests as a rare treat.

The aroma is very pleasing and interesting – more savory than sweet. The flavor is very smooth, even though I over-steeped it a bit. No hint of bitterness. The color is very light, more yellow than green. I tend to favor senchas, but this might be my new favorite.

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 3 min, 30 sec

I love this. It was a gift from my daughter, but I first experienced it because my son’s fiancee has one. I find that just dumping the leaves and rinsing it has been enough for cleaning, though sometimes I’ll soak it with some soap. I’ve never tried it in the dishwasher. I like it especially for teas that have a wonderful color, such as Ureshino Tama Ryokucha.

Bio

Episcopal priest, hospital chaplain, mother of two 20-somethings, wife of college professor, writer and knitter. Never liked Lipton, and once I discovered green properly brewed I was hooked. Have been exploring teas as an enthusiastic novice for maybe 10 years or so. I tend to favor greens and oolongs, without sugar or milk or lemon. The taste of the tea itself is important to me, so I don’t do a lot of bubble teas. Once in a while, though, a bubble tea is just the thing. Fruit teas are something I normally avoid, as they are often too acidic. I’m open to try new shops, so will be looking for reviews of tea rooms in places I travel to, such as Minneapolis, Boston, NYC.
