OK, so I don’t really have much to say about this one, even though I’ve been sipping it all afternoon. That doesn’t mean it’s bad. I just that I’m not feeling particularly poetic today, and I can’t think of much to say.
It has a pleasant tanginess & a kind of fresh taste, which I like. And it’s very ‘clean’ tasting, no musty shroomness or anything.
The leaf is beautiful, and hydrates up very quickly, with a fresh light green color.
It’s not overly sweet, although it smells like it should be sweetish, but that sweetness never did materialize.
The flavor profile stayed the same throughout: Green apricot, creme of wheat cereal, and fresh hay
Also not really a huge dose of chaqi on this one, just a very mild buzz. Very mild.
OK, so I’ve popped back in and edited this 3 times, LOL
One more comment, which is the taste of olive leaf in the later steepings, and some bitterness that is satisfying, but not over the top.

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
