The final tea in the first month of my tea tasting experiment came from a new company to me, Tea Gschwendner. As for this particular tea, I was a little disappointed. It has an almost overpowering citrus scent, but the actual citrus flavor left much to be desired. It was a decent tea, but compared to the scent it gives off it was very tame. There was almost no orange flavor and the Ceylon tea they used as a base isn’t remarkable. It calls for a shorter steep time than I would normal do, but didn’t get bitter when I left it in a little longer than they recommend. Overall it was a decent tea, but nothing to write home about.

My name is Brent Swisher, and I love tea.

About a year ago I really got into loose leaf teas. As part of my 2010 New Years resolutions, I will be trying a different tea every week and blogging my opinion on it. If you want to follow along, Check out http://teageek.org

Hopefully, you can read and enjoy it, and maybe we can both learn a little about tea along the way!
