247 tasting notes

This is an interesting tea. Dry leaf smelled grassy, meadowy. It’s beautiful to look at, green and long and flat. The liquor is very, very light yellow, but not much of a fragrance, well, other than a little asparagus.

At first, I didn’t like it at all. The first steep produced a very vegetal, savory tea, with just a super faint hint at sweetness. (So faint that I thought I imagined it.) It didn’t have anything really interesting, but it wasn’t horrific, so I decided to steep a second time, honestly, simply because I was thirsty and I had some hot water ready to go.

The second steep was amazing! Sweet, slightly floral, mysterious and extremely pleasant. It was like a different tea. I haven’t had this happen to me before and it’s showing me that maybe I need to give some of these teas I dislike a second steep to see if there’s a glorious cup awaiting the next infusion…

I’m a middle school teacher of French, Spanish, ESL and reading intervention. I’m also a mom to two young children.

I’ve always been a tea lover. When I lived in France during college, I really loved the tisanes. Over the past couple of years, I’ve branched off into loose teas. I’m not very knowledgeable about teas, but I’m really loving the learning process!
