The dried tea leaves are olive-green and silver and very long. This can make it hard to pack enough into a tea strainer, since there’s a lot of air caught between them, making for an extremely mild cup of tea. The dried tea smells of wood and earth, dry grass.
The steeped tea is a very pale yellow-green. The scent is like leafy greens with a slight fruity sweetness. The taste is extremely mild, a bit like grass, with a burst of astringency in the aftertaste, which is quite nice after the previous mildness.
Overall a really wonderful tea, great on its own or with a meal.
