Thank you to Tea Story for kindly sending me some samples to try out and review for them. Since the steeping guide on the sample packet has Western brewing instructions that’s how I decided to try out the sample.

My first infusion was very warm and toasty with some great, roasty flavour and a bit of a softer nuttiness. Definitely no bitterness or astringency; just a very smooth flavour and mouthfeel. I’d say probably more of a medium body than anything else. Other than the roasty notes, I also found that this was a bit floral, especially as it cooled and had a nice sweetness that was a bit of a cross between a lighter caramel and sort of a honey sweetness. Maybe the tiniest hint of light peachy fruitiness?

My second infusion was a much lighter roasty flavour that was less of a top note and more of a body note. Instead, I’d say the focus was definitely shifted more in favour of the floral notes in the tea. It maintains that honey sweetness in the finish, although this one doesn’t have a super long lasting aftertaste.

I know traditionally is usually reserved for people of high esteem or special occasions but I think because of the lower caffeine level, general ‘smoothness’ of the blend, and really nice flavour profile this would make for a very unobtrusive daily drinker. Thanks again Tea Story for the sample!
