Pale green tea.
Aroma is vegetal and milky.
Taste is vegetal, some sweetness, milk, some biscuit and green leaf.
Aroma is stronger vegetal notes.
Taste is green leaf, more cream than milk this time. The sweetness is a little less noticeable due to being overpowered by its greenness.
More of orange green tea in colour
Aroma has toned down on its vegetal notes.
Taste is more mellow on the green notes now, not as creamy either. It seems to have developed a little bit of pepper on the back of the tongue with some warmth. Once the tea has cooled a little the creaminess returns stronger.
