I received this sample to review this interesting “new-old” invention! Let us sip!
Since the sample was already bagged, I had to do Western style on it. Not sure how the gongfu style would have turned out, but it might have been good, who knows, this tea disappeared quickly from my cupboard. :-)
As I sip down the last few millilitres, I can taste something I have not tasted for so long! It’s coffee! Oh my gosh, it was so great. Honestly, I enjoyed every single sip of this tea! Now, if we are going back in the time the first few sips were a bit earthy and maybe with a reminiscent of matcha-type grassyness. When you begin to brew this tea the color of the tea is light yellow, but once it steeps for like 3 minutes it becomes dark-orange. It’s not something small like you would expect from black teas, it’s totally big.
Bottom line: An interesting and tasty new-old invention, that I would definitely recommend to anyone!
(What’s worth to mention is that as soon as I poured the water over the bag, a LOT of small bits went straight out of the bag. Whoopsie! :) )
Photos will be available really soon!
