Decent green tea. This is my first experience with purple tea. I’m a big Prince fan, so anything purple will be purchased by me.

I got two brews out of it. I really really like Assam coming from the Kenya region, and I was interested in trying this varietal. It was different, can’t really say it’s like Japanese, Indian, Chinese green tea. It’s on its own. There’s no astringency. Not a bad cup. Though I have a leaning towards Japanese fukamushi, so that’s the type of greens I go to most.

It was nice to try, and I am looking forward to trying the white and oolong from the same tea grower!!!!

EDIT: I have to up this. After it cools just a tad after brewing, the flavor comes out to play more. It livens up!

I love cooking, sleeping, reading, reggae music, and tea. I also enjoying reading about tea, the culture and ceremonies, and the diverse types.

I think most the teas I drink are 80% iced, but on some days, it’s opposite that, especially days off! I can’t believe it took me this long to try different teas. Better now than never!

Reading the reviews help guide me to the right tea. I have been turned on to so many delightful brews.

I am ALWAYS up for swapping. Just PM me.
