Yikes, I’m probably one of the most inconsistent reviewers on the site, but oh well.
[First steep] This tea had quite the effect on me, it’s really unique. On the first steep it brewed so incredibly clear and amber, with an amazingly fruity taste. I’d say it tasted like subtle grapes and figs, along with a little bit of a raisin. I’m not sure why so many people here in the states are too fond of raisins but honestly I love them so much, so that’s probably the reason why I really like this tea (so far). Lets hope the other steeps are just as good!
[at about the 4th steep?] This tea is still impressing, it still has that arisen taste to it, and has a great mouth drying effect with a tad bit of bitterness. It also tastes like, hmm I’ve forgotten the name but it’s the dried Chinese fruit that is like the arabic date, it tastes exactly like it! This tea is really good, and perfect for a late night read.
[I’m far too teadrunk to remember] Ahh, in conclusion this tea is probably one of my favorites. I’m not sure why it’s had such a bad reputation with other reviewers but I absolutely fell head over heels for this tea! It’s just got such a unique, smooth, and nuanced flavor, and really brightened up my day. I drank this tea during a late night read, and it deffinately was made for the occasion.
I’ll try my best to force myself to review teas, haha, but I’m probably not going to be on for a little while, but until then I wish all you tea heads a great summer months!
