AllanK has been after me to try Awazon teas for months, so I suggested he put some in the TTB, both for me and so others could also try them. This is my first tea from the new box.
The first steep was very acidic, so had a citrus character, with a hint of apricot. The nose was very light, but there was a fairly decent finish. The second steep was more woody, with a hint of smoke and much less citrus/apricot. Also less acid. Starting in the third steep, it became quite bitter. The bitterness faded in subsequent steeps, but never went away. By the 5th steep, the taste was all wood and bitter. By the 4th steep, I was noticing the cha qi, which was present but fairly subdued.
There were aspects of this tea that were appealing, but nothing really stood out that made me like it. It might make a decent daily drinker, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to drink more. Ironically, I think my favorite steep was the first (what most people call “the rinse”).
