When opening the pack, the tea smelled incredibly sweet and flowery. I brewed it for 2 minutes and added another 20 seconds for my taste. I added half a teaspoon of sugar, tasted, added a quarter of a teaspoon more.
I could taste refreshing citrus and it was a little bit floral. The website describes the texture as ‘creamy’ and I certainly agree. I couldn’t really taste much else, maybe because I’ve just woken up. The finish and aftertaste of this tea is what made me so unsure, it left my mouth tasting like I had just sucked on a cheap lemon cough sweet. I usually get this with over-brewed green teas, however I stuck to the 2-3 minutes it said on the packet. My second steeping will give me a better idea of my opinion.
Second steeping: I was looking forward to the second steeping and monitored the time very closely. I steeped for 2 minutes, the minimum that was recommended. It still tasted very bitter, so I steeped for an extra 10 seconds which made the bitterness stronger. It was disappointing as I love the actual taste of the tea but the finish and aftertaste pretty much ruin it for me.
However, I’m really new to tea tasting so my review should be taken with a very large pinch of salt.
