Citrusy when opening the tea pouch, in a fresh way (it reminds me of when the lemon trees are in bloom). Once steeped, the loose leaves open up nicely and that´s a lovely sight, with the pink peppercorns and the orange peel slices to complete the “painting”. The tea is the colour of a sweet white wine, and in nose now the peppercorns come through with the bits of pomelo. Spicy taste but very balanced. A blend which works for me!

From Bruu´s website :
What it is? Discover hidden treasures in a fine green/black tea blend, red peppercorn pearls, golden orange peel nuggets and as the highlight, exotic, colourful pomelo slices ═ everything but a curse.
Why we love it? Punchy and sweet, with a fiery heat from the peppercorns. Smooth and velvety, just as you would imagine a Caribbean kiss of a pirate from the Caribbean tastes like on stormy waters
Where it’s from? The humid climate of the Sichuan province, China, lends itself well to the production of tea. From a distance, the tea farms could almost be mistaken for rice paddies. The most popular tea styles in Sichuan are green and black.
How our drink hits the senses: Punchy and sweet, with a fiery heat from the peppercorns. As you’re drinking there’s a genuine warmth, perfectly blended, with a big ol’ citrus punch. This tea is smooth and velvety, just as you would imagine a Caribbean smooch!

Bio

Introduced to tea by my sister-in-law in my country of birth = Belgium more than 30 years ago, I still love tea, mainly black, which I enjoy without sugar or milk. Having lived in UK, near good tea shops (e.g. Betty´s all over Yorkshire), I tend to buy most of my tea in bulk from tea shops (as such, most of these are not represented in my on-line cupboard). Nowadays, I live in Spain where tea gives me another sensatory bliss (as wine or beer or coffee can give me too).
