drank Persimmon by Royal Tea Bay Co. Ltd.
15 tasting notes

Royal Tea Bay is one of my favourite eBay tea stores, so I was poking around and noticed the persimmon leaf tea. It intrigued me, because I’ve had goji leaf tea before and really like it. I wondered if it was similar. Since I drink so much tea, I’m always looking for caffeine-free teas and if they are beneficial to health, then all the better. The persimmon leaf tea has huge leaves and I had to break them up to get them into my infuser. The dry leaves didn’t have a very strong smell, so I steeped for five minutes to try and get as much taste and aroma as possible. The brewed tea has a mild aroma and light colour. It had a slight peppery taste to it and was vegetal. I found the tea mild, but I’m not sure if it’s because I didn’t use enough of the leaves for steeping. I’ll try using more next time.

I live in Victoria, BC. I’m a tea-aholic and have been since I was 9. I discovered David’s Tea a couple of years ago and went crazy for all kinds of loose teas. I’ve been an addict ever since and if I’m not drinking tea, I’m reading about it or trying it in different recipes. I’m so glad I found Steepster!
