This is a very beautiful tea blend that comes in large sachets but I didn’t want to make a large pitcher so I cut one of the sachets open to get enough for two cups out. Plus I could see the beautiful colors inside!!! The dry leaf is so pretty that it is better out of the sachet!!!! It is a dark bancha green tea with blue Mallow flowers and Cornflowers plus Quince fruit. There are little tiny flowers mixed into the pretty blend.
I brewed this first to try as a hot tea and then ice the rest. I am enjoying it so much as a hot tea that I don’t know if I will get around to icing it!!! The liquor is a light green apple color with sweet green apple scents and flavors. It is the quince that is flavoring this so nicely. I have had quince only once and this is what it tasted like to me,,,a creamy green apple flavor.
I iced the second cup and it is pure heaven!!!! This is going to be a lovely iced tea for the hot months here in the desert. Yummy creamy quince flavor and the green tea really takes a back seat to the quince. It just seems to provide the color rather than any vegetal or bancha flavor to this tea.
I really enjoyed this blend!!!!
Made a couple of glasses of iced tea this afternoon,,,very refeshing and unique-tasting with the quince. Yumm
