This is my second review for this tea using a different brand of bottle water. Tea smell resinous and cantaloup. Tea soup is clear, transparent, beautiful and gold in colour.

15 Seconds rinse, 1st steep (3:00 min): First sip has a light resinous flavour. The resin taste seem darker like a bit burned as you drink it. Feel warm on my face, middle of my stomach and both front of my arms. What is that taste after swallowing the tea? Can’t pin point this one, is it woodsy? As the tea cool down the resinous taste is weaker with a subtle hint of sweetness and a slight bitterness starting to reveal itself. A mix of bitterness and earth replace the resin taste.

2nd Steep (4:00 min): Tea smell woody and resinous, first sip is bitter and maybe kind of a dark wood. Using Naya water instead of Nestle water seem to have a huge impact on this tea, with Naya water brand it is rough, darker, more earthy and less sweeter. As the tea cool down the resinous taste mix with the dark wood. At the end, it is the resinous and bitterness taste that are showing the most.

Lowering the rating of this tea because no sugary flavours are present, it still good enough but I will stick using Nestle Pure Life water brand or I might adjust the amount or/and steep time.
