I’m a bit ambivalent about this tea. To be honest I’m not sure I I like it or not. I certainly don’t hate it. The smell fo the loose tea reminds me of Black Jack gum for some reason, and the taste of the tea is fine. When hot, there isn’t really a taste of spice or citrus to me, just a generic tea taste. As it cools, the spice seems to show up first. I kind of felt like I was drinking spicy water, so I put in a teaspoon of honey, which seemed to perk up those spicy notes, but I really didn’t taste the citrus until the last couple of swallows.
It isn’t unpleasant, but unless further cups impress, I may be bumping my rating down. I figure I might play around with the steeping time just too see if maybe the tea is drowning out the rest of the taste.
