Received a sample of this from a tea friend and drank it a few weeks ago. I really need to get back into the habit of just directly putting my tasting notes here instead of saving them in email drafts and notes on my phone.

The smell of the leaves is sweet in the bag, and they take on a slightly buttery aroma once poured into my brewing vessel. The dry leaves are rather dark and chopped-looking, and they produce a light gold liquor.

The first steep tastes of sweet chestnut, and that persists into the second steep to be joined by an almost rice-like or grainy flavor. It kind of reminds me of having a bowl of cereal.

Overall, this was a really interesting tasting green tea that I enjoyed. Thanks for the sample, Hoálatha!

Flavors: Butter, Chestnut, Grain, Rice, Sweet

I don’t rate until I have had a tea several times unless it makes a very strong, immediate impact.
