Brewing this in my gaiwan the initial scent after a quick rinse surprised me. It smelled so much like banana. I mean like Now & Later banana, but in a very subtle way. The first tasting had a little of the same banana but was more reminiscent of dried papaya. It has an acidic quality that brings a brightness to the cup, and reminds me almost of the smell of a hair salon. All of this comes together nicely for a mellow, bright, sweet fragrant light tea. It is perfect for the finishing touch on a long day, which is exactly how I am using it now.

Attempting to live a simple life in Kansas City with my amazing wife and five wonderful children. I have approximately 1,752 interests and right at the top of that list is tea. I am a big fan of unflavored teas of all sorts. I will always try something new.

I went for a long time without rating or reviewing teas. I tried, I really did, but it always seemed that by the time I had put the experience into words I had lost the experience that I had originally fallen in love with. Tea for me is best as it is. In the leaf. In the pot. In the cup. Now I am finding myself years later and wishing I had a better record of the teas I have tried, something, oh I don’t know, like a tea log… And so I am attempting to leave tasting notes on here again.

I am never short for words when it comes to tea, so if you want to talk or try anything in my cupboard don’t hesitate to ask.
