I bought a several tea bags from, kind of favourite, tea shop, a Basilur teas distributor. They sell even a individual packed tea bags and as I bought some other teas, I have received a load of other tea bags as well. Brands like Tipson and Eminent, all with short shelf life as they have BB in June, but I don’t mind!
Maybe they thought I am a collector of those wrappings, so they sent some tea as a package filling as well as to get rid of them.
Anyway, this one should be fresh. This is what I have ordered. And when I read it is “combination of excellent Chinese tea, natural peach and mandarin peel.” I thought it’s black tea. So, boiling water used for a green flavoured tea. Whoops.
But it doesn’t turn the tea bitter, it was nicely grassy, with some buttery aftertaste. Nice peach flavour, I have been expecting a bit bolder taste though. It was sweet ripe peach. For a tea bag, where real peach is rare, but it’s there… it was a bit too weak. The rose leaves included (not sure if petals or rose plant leaves as in Czech as well in Russian it is said in the same way).
It’s nice, but expected a bit more. Won’t rate so far as prepared wrongly. Although they suggested 100°C.
PS: My exam result? Sadly, I have failed. But it’s maybe better this way. Finals thus postponed to August. Still okay, though I have hoped to have everything done before my 26th birthday.
Flavors: Floral, Fruity, Grass, Peach
