259 Tasting Notes
This tea does contain some very find particles, and if you don’t take care to shake them out of your strainer before steeping, they will settle in your cup and make your tea quite bitter. Taking care to remove the dust will produce a round, full cup without bitterness.
The last cup of a sample packet. A mild peach flavor, with a stronger (but still mild) ginger finish. Good body for a flavored tea. This would be excellent with a drop of whipping cream or heavy cream in it, stirred and taken with dessert. Also excellent with a few drops of whole milk. Does not get bitter when brewed with boiling water. Recommended if you like ginger.
The tea has a bit of too-fine tea dust in it, which would leak through my strainer into the cup and make it horribly bitter, but shaking the tea in the dry strainer for a bit removes that problem. After steeping for 4 minutes, it produces a satisfying cup, with a slight but nearly unnoticeable bitterness at the end. A full, round flavor that takes a drop of milk very well.
