Delicate, not too vegetal, mostly sweet. The tiniest hint of toasted.

I like this more an more the more I drink it. Since green tea is supposed to be the healthiest for you, I keep trying to find ones I enjoy. This is holding up to a second steep more and seems more forgiving than some others, in terms of not getting gross if you oversteep by a few seconds. It’s more like a cross between a white tea and a green oolong. It doesn’t have super complex flavor notes that crop up and the flavor doesn’t last for days in your mouth. So I’m giving it full credit for pleasing flavor (not overpoweringly artichoke or spinach), aroma and forgiveness to under/oversteeping. But it doesn’t get the few final stars for transcendence.

New to loose leaf tea and infusions.

Beer snob. Love to drink coffee, but there’s so much politics surrounding the coffee pots at my office, I just wanted my life calm and drama free. Tea and infusions are opening doors of flavor and serenity in my life. I like to create my own food recipes and such, so experimenting in tea was an obvious move once I got into it.

I’ll just put this right here in my profile: many black teas have an odd taste to me. I can only describe it as that they have the aftertaste like someone broke up a cigarette — including the bleached paper wrapper and plastic filter — and poured hot water over it and forced me to drink it on a dare.
