Doesn’t taste too vegetal or grassy to me, which is a good thing. Tastes smooth and smokey. I didn’t bother sweetening it; it is good just as it is. The people I shared it with enjoyed it as well, including people that “don’t usually like green tea.”

Edit: revisiting this tea 7 years later, now I’m getting some tasting notes that remind me of dark oolong esque roasty/hot rock spring water. Bumping score up slightly.

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a young, as a way of relaxing before bed. I ventured out from bagged, mass produced tea when I tried some loose leaf Earl Grey at the old man’s house years back. I’m still not too proud for the occasional bagged stuff, saving my snobbery for hard to find craft beer.

I gravitate towards Chinese black-tea varieties, Japanese greens, unflavored oolongs from wherever, and the occasional “I cant sleep” type of herbal teas. I signed up so I can keep track of the teas I’ve tried, and what I want to keep in my cupboard on the regular.
