This is a lovely and easy to drink tea that’s well-balanced. Obviously, one needs an affinity towards floral notes to fully enjoy it though.

Dry leaf aroma is floral with hints of green apple and beans. There is a creaminess to it that permeates the whole experience. Additionally, wet leaf smell brings associations of grapes (and raisins), bread, and pickled cucumbers. The taste is sweet, sour and floral with a distinctive creamy character.

It has a medium body and a buttery, cooling mouthfeel. In the aftertaste, I detected further flavours of spinach, pear, and butter. Interestingly, the aftertaste is somewhat reminiscent of a sencha aftertaste.

I have been a fan of green tea for a while and I started exploring other kinds of tea in greater depth only in 2017. I rarely drink blends and generally avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied.
