I am exploring my tons of samples and I decide to go for this lovely package from Anna

So it’s a green. I decided to play it carefully with the steeping parameters because I don’t know the brand so I brewed it at 75°C only and for 3 minutes only.

While in mug, steeping in my brewing basket, I saw the coconut floating at the surface. Coconut ? I was expecting a Walnut tea so I rushed on Steepster to discover this blend is more complex on flavours : coconut and walnut but pineapple as well on a sencha base. Seems a lot on paper. At least to me.

Drinking it, it’s a correct tea. Not much. The tea base has a lack of consistency and personnality, the leading role is clearly devoted to the flavours.
They are pairing correctly together but without any passion. The walnut flavour is really lovely and natural and for that the blend is a total sucess.

Thank you Anna for sharing

We seem to be of one mind on this. Totally agree just about everything.

Another of Anna´s surprise samples, and this is indeed a surprise and interesting. I love walnuts and can not remember ever tasting a tea with walnuts. I was doubtful if would work – walnut kernels go rancid fast, and the thin inner skin is bitter. This dried leaf showed little kernels of some nut (almond according to the site description) without skin and some other bits and pieces (after googling, must be the dried pineapple and coconut).

I was very cruel with this, by making it impulsively without googling it first , water too hot and too long. It survived it graciously, though if anything my problem with this tea is its base being a bit anonymous. There is a lovely walnut flavour, and something else in the background, a hint of strangeness which was not bad, just a bit surprising. I could not ID it on my own, but googling it, thereis dried pineapple and coconut here, and that is the tropical strangeness I was detecting. The flavours go together better than i would think, and quite well with the green tea, but they go against my expectations of what I would want in a a walnut tea (maybe something more pastry like: caramel, maple, pecan, cinnamon or just plain lovely walnut).

The tea base, sencha according to seller, is not unpleasant, but totally anonymous IMO. I guess the best way to describe this would be one of those german blends – in the surprising fillers and combinations and weak tea base, though a nice example of a certain kind of tea.
