This is a somewhat subtle, medium bodied tea. Not too complex, but quite satisfying to drink. It seems to oxidize quite quickly too. I have had it for 3 months now and I can see big changes in all aspects.

Wet leaf smell has a strong fenugreek note to it with a hint of chlorine in the background. The taste is mostly herbaceous and sour with vegetal and floral undertones and sweet aftertaste. There is a little bit of astringency, bitterness only comes in the second infusion. The mouthfeel is buttery, but neither thick nor coating.

The tea only lasts for 2 infusions, but given the price I got it for (something like 3.50 USD for 100g), I cannot really complain.

Flavors: Floral, Herbaceous, Sour, Spices, Sweet, Vegetal

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 6 g 6 OZ / 180 ML

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.
