This tea has an invigorating dry leaf aroma, but it didn’t leave a strong impression at first otherwise. However, I found myself reaching for it fairly often afterwards, so there is something attractive about it. I guess the fairly light body and a good balance of sweetness and woodiness make it an easy-to-drink tea without the need for much engagement.

Initial scent is sweet with hints of cookies, popcorn, cocoa, and chickpeas. It gets less pungent during the session, and the range of aromas is more in the neighborhood of charcoal, forest floor, and moss.

First infusion is smooth, sweet and milky with an upfront cocoa taste. There are also some fruity, vegetal, metally and woody flavours. Later steeps are somewhat tannic with a short-lived bitterness.

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.
