Tea Taste Comparison #1! The first thing that I thought of when I tried this tea was that it tasted a lot like W2T’s Poundcake. So, I decided to compare the two side by side. Here are my findings: I did not do a rinse. After the first two cups of each, I honestly found trouble finding a difference in taste. I found the same results after the third steep and fourth steeps. The color, taste, and aroma were pretty much identical. I’ll assume that that the rest of the steeps will be similar. For $7.50 a 100g cake, this was well worth the purchase. Like the Poundcake, it is creamy, slightly vegetal, smooth, sweet, and slightly fruity.
