|"The flavor was full-bodied, but with a nice fruitiness and a hint of ripe grapes."|
I decided to try brewing some fresh leaves at 95 degrees for four minutes, and was pleasantly surprised to find that there was still no bitterness. The flavor was smooth and rich, with the same fruitiness as my first attempt, but a bolder overall taste. It turns out that my fear of bitterness was unfounded. I recommend a 95 degree brewing temperature for this tea, as it brings out its full flavor.
This is a good breakfast tea. Its bold flavor and richness, with a subtle complexity resulting from the balance of nutty, fruity notes, make it a great tea to wake up to.
