Superb. When one thinks of wild tea trees the picture of an old tree with moss and lichen growing on it comes to mind but I had never thought of what it may taste of.
If you have a chance to try the tea of an old, wild tea tree do not pass it up. (And for all you funny bunnies if you send me a picture of yourself biting a tree I will laugh).
The woody characteristics are like nothing I’ve had before. Along with it’s woodsy notes it is also malty and has honey notes. It is incredibly smooth with a glorious mouth feel.
Currently on the third steeping of this tea. Using a gaiwan, hot water but not boiling, for the first steep and let the water gradually cool.
When the liquid first enters my mouth I get a floral sensation but it always dissipates quickly into the woodsy flavors.
We are on four steepings now.
Here’s the scoop!
