1 Tasting Note
I was pleasantly surprised by this tea. I had it during breakfast at a hotel. I’m pretty new to tea tasting, so I can’t get terribly specific about my experience, but here I go trying anyway.
The tea didn’t have a terribly strong aroma. The flavor was strongly citric, with a sour finish, and it was slightly astringent. The citrus taste almost makes me wonder if it had some sort of flavoring added to it, actually.
I didn’t pay much attention to the preparation of this tea, since I didn’t expect it to be very good. I used 6-8 oz of whatever temperature water the hotel had at the buffet (likely just barely below boiling), and a single tea bag, for somewhere around 3 minutes. My experience with this tea makes me curious to try shorter steep times for the other teas I enjoy—it’s possible I’ve been oversteeping.
Flavors: Citrusy, Pleasantly Sour
