31 Tasting Notes
I love this tea! It is the most perfect summer iced tea I’ve had yet. There is sweet lime upfront with a hint of green tea and a lovely creamy mouthfeel. If I had any criticism, it would be that it’s heavy with all the lime pieces and goes fast. That said, I’m still ordering more.
This tea is a winner. When hot, the caramel is subtle, smooth and sweet without being overpowering. Then, I got busy and forgot about my cup for a while (the horror!). When I found my forgotten cup and sipped it at room temp, I was pleasantly supplied to find that the caramel flavor intensified. It was much less subtle; but still not overpowering. Icing it down toned the caramel down quite a bit, but I still like it. Way to go Persimmon Tree!
The smell of vanilla is strong with this one. I brewed for 3min @ 200F twice. Hot, there is something off in the flavor almost artificial – not my favorite vanilla. But, cold is much better. Unlike other vanillas which get lost cold, this one’s clean and very tasty.
