drank Lotus by The Persimmon Tree Tea Company
1719 tasting notes

After reading Angrboda’s review of Lotus Puerh, and knowing I had some in transit, all I could think of was I want my Lotus. I want it now. So I put the Yixing aside and grabbed the press for a solid blast of this floral green. Unlike any other tea I’ve had. Whereas Tazo’s decaf lotus is a polite, lovely, and proper cup of lightly flowery tea, this is its punk twin. It is a lot louder and far more vocal. The green base is Vietnamese. I have never had a straight Vietnamese green before but I am certain it is largely responsible for the uniqueness of this scented tea. The lotus combines to produce an almost anise like flavor that really appeals to me. The base does no get lost and comes back in at the end. Just what I was craving this cloudy afternoon.
