3 Tasting Notes
The first thing to note about this tea is the smell, it has a very strong – don’t even have to open the bag to sniff – aroma that is also very unique. (I went around my office asking co-workers to smell it :P) It definitely has a sweetness to it but I can’t pinpoint what else – maybe caramel or/and fruit?
It brews to be a light green tea with a subtle aroma. The taste can also be described as smooth with a soft unique/interesting flavor that it really hard to place. When I tried it yesterday, I was thinking maybe peach? One co-worker thought maybe milk and vanilla, one just said it needed sugar, and another also couldn’t place it. I tried it again today and still can’t place it. :-/
It re-steeps well – holding onto some flavor and not getting bitter.
Because of its uniqueness, I will recommend giving it a shot (it’s different) but I would not buy it again (too confusing). I might play with mixing the rest of what I have with some of my other teas and see what I end up with. .
