Another sample from Plum Deluxe! Thank you!
I really like the thought that seemingly goes into the names of their teas. I have had a lot of other teas with similar ingredients, the main thing that made this one stick out was it is a black and green tea blend so I found that interesting. I was brewing my cup and honestly thought that the lighter floral flavors would be too weak to hold up to a black tea and I was then worried that the citrus would have to be really strong as with most black tea leaf citrus teas I’ve tried.
I was surprised when I started to sip my cup. It has a fuller body than a floral green tea but it is not as dark and strong as a typical black tea. My first few sips I really only tasted the black tea and lemongrass. However after a few minutes more of cooling down, I could start to taste the other citrus as well as the floral flavors. I enjoyed my cup and was happy to re-steep twice before the flavors started to fade.
This tea is well named, I could see myself keeping this tea as a go-to for something to drink while I am cooking or if I had some friends over and wanted something that could appeal to a lot of people, as the citrus and floral are not overwhelming. The flavors come together nicely in a way where I don’t feel overwhelmed or like I can only have one cup. I would happily drink a whole pot.
Personally for me at least, I would like to taste the green tea a bit more and maybe a little less lemongrass.
Flavors: Citrus, Floral, Lemongrass
