Full bodied, smooth, with a subtle floral finish. Tasted a hint of cinnamon, too. A warming tea experience on a cold autumn night.
This tea is my absolute favorite from My Stream Teas. It has such a wonderful. Floral sweet semi spiced undescrible taste that must be tasted to understand. It steeps 3 to 4 times with fantastic taste. It is a wonderful tea poured over ice I try to always have it on had at work and at home
This tea has it all. Friendly, well balanced, with the flavors evolving along the steeps. For me, some fruit cake and narcissus in the beginning and more like cooked banana in the later brews. And sort of a pleasant durian aftertaste (just the good flavor of that fruit, not the sickening part).
Mouth feel and aftertaste is where this tea really shines! Lovely fruity, floral and even a little tart aftertaste that stays in the mouth for a long time. Leaves a zesty, almost tingly feeling on the tongue that persists long after the tea is gone. A unique tea that’s worth trying!
This is a full-bodied, comforting tea. I've tried it both grandpa style and in a glass kyusu (212 F water, covered w/ a towel, 1 minute steeps, 2-3 times). It does have a sweet aroma and taste, as others have said, and I get the sour fruit note. I'd also call it vegetal, and there's a note I'd describe as kind of "cinnamon-y" that surprised me. This flavor was very evident when brewed grandpa style, lasting through quite a few infusions, and more delicate in the kyusu.
