ZOMBA PEARLS

Tea type: white tea

Brand: Cape and Cape

How to prepare it: 4-5 minutes, 70°C (160 °F)


Dry scent:

It's totally absurd how much its scent recall to milk chocolate (really, I'm not jocking, it's like opening a new milk chocolate bar). After a while a slight bitterness comes out, closer to sweet powder cocoa. At the end a smooth herbal note arises.


Liquor's colour:

Pale yellow.


Liquor's scent:

Completely different respect to before: it's

really light. The cocoa's notes are defintely disappeared, leaving space to more herbal hints, mix up with a not so well defined background sweetness. At the end a vague aroma of wood and honey is showed up.


Taste:

Still different. It's really sweet and now the main flavour is something really closer to honey. At the beginning is quite watery, but after a few second the the flavour starts to arises, but slowly. There is a light woody base, but almost neither an herbal note. At the end there is a "shy" sweetness which recal a little bit the sweet cocoa. Not so full-bodied.


Conclusion:

Its scents have almost nothing in common, while its taste take a bit of all from both. Everytime you taste it, you find something new, or different, respect before. A strange tea, really criptic under certain aspects, but still enjoyable. If you like solving puzzle, maybe you will love it.

My score is 8/10
