55 Tasting Notes
There’s a wonderful scent of citrus that hits you as soon as you open the tin, and gets deeper as it steeps. Lovely and vibrant orange-brown color and wonderful, oolong taste with a crisp hit of citrus.
I brewed this at a slightly lower temp (a recommendation from Twitter) – 160 degrees – and I saw a slightly milder taste than the bitter edge I got at 180d. Grassy is a def, vegatal with a slight sweet taste. Full, grassy scent. The second steep was milder still.
This is a great pick-me-up when I need to focus and keep getting distracted.
160 is the temp recommendation I have as well. 2tsp in 4oz water for 2 min. Glad you got a better cuppa:)
I’m really enjoying this – mellow, slight sweetness and a lovely mint. Perfect for a relaxing, night tea.
I love the scent – a nice, spicy orange. A great citrus taste with a kick. What I wasn’t expecting that these came as teabags (Came as part of a Steepster Select set), but I love the silk look of the bags. As soon as I opened the tin, the scent wafted up, but it wasn’t overpowering.
