This was the tea that the other person I went to High Tea with chose to drink.
She was torn between this and a jasmine pearl tea, but I talked her into trying this one partially because I wanted to try it (selfish, I know) but also because she drinks jasmine pearl teas ALL THE TIME and I thought she should take advantage of the experience to try something new to her but still in the same family of teas she generally enjoys (floral). Ultimately, she really loved the tea, so it was definitely a good recommendation.
Also, you can bet your ass that I wasn’t going to let her get a tea that I wanted to try and then not try any of it myself – so I had a small teacup worth of her pot, and she got to try a cup worth of what I had selected. I’m glad I went with the mango because in my opinion that one was better; but this was really nice too. It’s more light bodied and delicate tasting, with sweet but very typical osmanthus characteristics.
I can see a lot of the foods we were served masking a lot of the tea’s flavour though. I think this would be better for drinking without food, in my opinion.
