The dry leaves are tightly woven knots and corkscrews twisted lengthwise; a patchwork of white and green threads.
After adding this tea to my warmed gaiwan, the first thing that greeted me was a creamy yet slightly roasted and vegetal aroma. But once infused, you notice more characteristics of asparagus and slight tropical notes.
The first thing you notice about the taste of this tea is how sweet it is. It is delectably sweet like pineapple. Once the sweetness washes over your tongue, a light asparagus taste pervades it.
This smooth, full bodied, and refreshing tea is perfect for sunny spring days.
