I got the sampler pack and the flavors and aroma of this one were my favorite. The description is accurate, and the packaging is pleasant.
I did not like this one. I don't get much flavor and it's pretty astringent no matter how short the steep is. I brewed it gongfu style, trying different times, from 5s to 30s. At best, its blah. Will not be buying it again.
I found out about Three Gems through a feature on Bon Appetit and immediately had to order the sampler pack to try out all of the offerings. Bamboo Peak was my absolute favorite of the bunch -- light flavored with notes of peach and butter. This will definitely be a regular in my tea rotation!
I tend to like lighter roasts for teas and this one did not disappoint. I love how this tea tastes milky by itself. The fruity notes add depth and make it all the more delicious. What more could I ask for?
This tea is incredible. Taiwanese oolongs are on another level! So smooth and fragrant--going to try making milk tea with this. Thank you Three Gems!
