The Purrfect Cup Sent me this – thanks a million!

This has almost a fruity and honey yet grainy type taste to it – it’s very different than I expected but quite pleasant.

I do agree with Rumpus Parable that there is a Zucchini type flavor to it as well! This is an interesting and tasty cuppa!

This has a greenish, hayish, honeyish scent. Hard to pinpoint but very pleasant.

The taste is also a mix of these. The main flavor is quite green…reminds of spinach or zucchini, but not as heavy. Then there’s the dry, warm, beige taste of hay swirling into the sip after a while. A faint sweetness on the front of the tongue.

The finish is long with the green flavor.

Made at 185 degrees and 2:30 minutes.

A lovely, well-defined flavor. I find that the Indian Silver Needle teas tend to have a stronger flavor than the Silver Needle teas from China.

Sweet, refreshing. Soothing. Notes of melon and peach with a dewy freshness. As I mentioned in my full-length review of this tea: – I had difficulty putting my finger on the precise fruit flavor that I was experiencing until I read the description for this tea “Dried Apricot” and yes, that’s it. It has that sugary sort of flavor that you might experience from biting into a dried apricot. Sweet, sweet, sweet!
