Buddha Teas was kind enough to offer up some tea for reviews, and I accepted. I was surprised when I opened the box and saw that it was bagged tea. Uh oh! Usually bagged teas aren’t very good, but I soldiered on.
Let me say, the packaging is gorgeous. It is definitely eye catching, and of very high quality materials. Really well done.
My next “uh oh” moment came when I read the package and saw that they recommend steeping up to 10 minutes. For this review I went with a shorter steep but at some point will try it the other way.
I have to say, this tea really surprised me. It was really good! I’m not sure that I would have known it was bagged tea if I had done a blind taste test, so kudos on that. In this case, the bag makes it really convenient since it can be used on the go. I love it when I am surprised like that.
I found the tea to have a hearty flavor and that “oolongy” taste (what makes that anyway?) This tea is definitely worth taking a look at. Don’t let the bag scare you!
