An interesting tea that changed a bit with each steep of the leaves. Sunny, warm flavor of cut sweet grass with some nutty tones. A really pleasant green tea to warm a cool fall day. Lovely amber color, and good for at least three resteeps before the flavor fades.

Flavors: Nutty, Sweet, warm grass

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 1 min, 45 sec 1 tsp 6 OZ / 177 ML

Thanks Doug. Funny how I got away from leaving tasting notes, and don’ t really know why!

I was surprised to see you mention a cool fall day. Weren’t you living in Florida?

After living most of my life in Miami, FL I moved to Raleigh, NC 18 months ago. Among other factors, it is nice to be where lots of folks like tea, and where we have 4 seasons instead of Miami’s eternal summer heat and humidity!

I totally get it. I’ve always lived in the Northeast but went to grad school at UF and my family had a house in the Keys for many years. I couldn’t handle the heat and humidity year round.

I have been drinking tea for most of my life, and enjoy learning about Tea Culture from all around the world. I learned early about Russian and British traditions first, since my parents came from Europe, followed by the teas and culture of Ceylon/Sri Lanka and India. Since I have been a practicing Buddhist for the better part of 25 years, I have strong ties to Asia, and have slowly been learning about the teas from each part of the world I encounter. It is a wonderful and interesting journey.
