From Teabox

When it’s time for the Spring Flush, one name is looked upon with much anticipation. Every year Badamtam makes these incredibly smooth and superlative moonlights that connoisseurs and tea houses vie for. This year’s no exception. The tea is highly fragrant and light with floral-fruity sweetness. The smooth liquor starts fresh with notes like those of geraniums, lilies, and citrus blossoms. It turns lively with delicious traces of mango and the aftertaste is made exquisite with bright and balmy aroma of spring sap. You can steep the leaves twice more with a mellow second cup that’s rich in flavors of raw mango and sweeter white peaches. The third steep with ice makes for a bracing cup..

I was very disappointed with this tea. I had an unpleasant experience with Teabox this year due to some shady advertisement tactics. This tea did not help that experience and I won’t be supporting them any longer, but I digress. The leaves were quite pretty with a pleasant typical aroma of lily, unripe mango, butterscotch, and a strong background of geranium. I brewed this in my Wedgwood teapot along with some bone china cups for a pleasant afternoon tea time; however, I was severely let down from the contents of the cup. This tea was plain with a flat and stale demeanor. I picked up zero complexity and depth of flavor; it was also lacking in any mouthfeel. I’ve had tea from Badamtam for numerous years, and this tea is drastically lower in quality. The leaves run for $1.50/gram which is a steep price to demand for a western style tea. I understand that the pandemic is largely influencing the market these days; however, I feel that most companies have done a great job at operating within these limits. It seems that the corporate giants don’t have much interest in integrity…
