Prepared it in the afternoon; as it is from today received subscription envelope (May 2020).
Honestly, I am somehow puzzled about this tea.
2 1/2 tsp, 80°C water.
Dry it is really floral, awesome peach aroma, looks pretty to brew.
But brewed… it is dismal. I was very cautious about the temperature; leaves were nice and pretty. So, added water to cup, steeping bag in and… started to turn green. Pretty green, as fresh green tea can make, no brown notes or anything.
First sip: hm, nothing phenomenal, it’s not bad, but expected more
Second sip: it is having nice grassy note, but sage making it earthy maybe way too much
Third sip: indeed it is earthy, but I notice green tea notes. Not a big deal, but I miss peaches.
Fourth sip: finally some peachy notes, as it cools down, more of them present.
I mean, okay – it’s herbal-green tea, but… it should be more fruity, especially if it is called like that. I expected earthy taste with refreshing peaches, but this is not it. I am sad, as I used to like B&B teas quite a lot, especially for unique flavours and/or combinations, but recently, it’s something missing. Or is extra :( .
