A one off sample from a friend that I have had for far too long. As far as I can remember I haven’t tried Wissotzky before so this shall be completely new.
Bag: Looked somewhat powdery and smelled strongly of ginger.
Steep: The colour is very yellow with a smell of subtle and fresh lemongrass.
Well while this tastes like lemongrass with a slight spicy ginger kick and that sounds nice I find that this is lacking something. It’s light and slightly spicy but with nothing to ground it…I can’t taste the green tea at all. It tastes like a Chinese remedy instant drink mixture that dissolves in water instead of a tea.
Pop a small sachet of chopped lemongrass and a pinch of ginger root and pour warm water over it and you will basically have this tea. Not very impressed at all and I am certainly not sad I only have one bag. Just not for me.
