I had to wait till this year to try this tea, because the first couple times I brewed it last year (2016) it still tasted too young and bland.
First infusion: 182˚F
Liquor is very pale, made me think I had underbrewed it. But it smells creamy and fruity, tastes light and refreshing. I can see why people compare the flavour to persimmon, though it’s not what jumps out at me immediately––just some kind of uncommon fruit note. Delicious!
Second infusion: 185˚F
The aroma of this tea is so intoxicating, sort of warm gourmand-y and like vanilla but less sweet. If I could wear it as a perfume I would. Reminds me of some of my favourite scents like Micallef’s Ylang in Gold.
Next time will try first infusion at 185˚F.
Flavors: Creamy, Fruity
