I really wanted to like this tea, because I love all other teas that I have bought from Punjana (Thompson’s). Sadly, I can’t say I like this one at all.
First steep: The floral and vanilla notes were overpowering. I couldn’t smell the tea at all, neither hot nor cold. I could only smell the artificial vanilla fragrance. When I tasted it, the sweetness of orange and vanilla came first, then came a bitter note from the green tea.
Second steep: The vanilla note was not as strong as in the first steep, but still there. The floral note was still overpowering. The bitter taste was absent from the second steep, however any “tea” taste was absent as well. And I have lost interest in making a third steep now…
Flavors: Artificial, Floral
