As a fan of Japanese greens, Darjeelings, and Bai Mu Dan, I could smell this tea all day. Dry and steeped, it is sweet and bright, but with maltiness hints, like a diverse garden. It will remind you of a vegetative Darjeeling or like a green Assam, to the nose? But the first sip will send you in another direction, rooted mostly in bright, crisp greens, a grassy bite, with a hint of sweetness. There’s a woodiness too, like fresh cut Hickory, or Black Walnut. The aftertaste is wheatgrass-forward with a sweet, almost stevia-like taste near the throat. It lingers for minutes, 5 easy. Can get easily bitter with too much tea, ideal to me at 1.5 tsp.
