I added this sample to my order on a whim, I certainly did not have any crazy expectations about it. I must say, however, that I absolutely love it and I will be definitely getting a tin of it at some point.
I don’t know where green tea is in the first infusion, it is certainly hiding somewhere under the greatest, juiciest, most delicious lemon flavor. It is so yummy and good, I just can’t get enough of it.
Some nice astringency is revealed in the second steep, on which I am right now, but the lemon flavor is still there, and still strong. Wow. Normally I would be a little upset about flavoring completely killing base tea but here it just works too damn well! And since I’m not an expert (yet!) on green teas, I don’t know, perhaps the taste of gunpowder merges exceptionally well with lemon flavor so that you can hardly tell them apart?
Oh well, it doesn’t matter, onto “My fav” list with it!
