2 Tasting Notes
You can’t miss the interesting packaging of this tea, hand made with some raw material like dried bark from banana trees.
The tea itself is great! The taste usually get too strong or bitter when you steam a black tea for too long. But not in this case! You can leave the tea bag in your cup as long as you want it still tastes good. It does taste fruity, and it’s natural flavored, so only delight of sweetness adds to the base. The down side is that, since it’s natural flavor, it’s hard to identify the mango flavor. I like this tea so much, So I bought Rooibos after finishing this box. I think you will enjoy it if you like English breakfast and wants to try something different for morning.
Hoku is a Hawaii exclusive and I have to say it does reminds me of Hawaii. It is a light flavor tea, you have to steep it in hot water for more than 5 minutes to let the flavor out. I think it’s best for cold-infused tea, rather than hot tea. The smell of tea is remarkable, it’s floral, sweet, like sitting in a flower shop. I personally like to drink it after dinner since it’s Oolong (less caffeine) and make me relax, a lovely bedtime tea :)
