56 Tasting Notes
this flavored tea is best brewed basket style rather than gongfu. Add a little milk to make it shine; it becomes sweet and nutty with just a tiny kick from the peppercorn. Otherwise it’s overpriced and relatively forgettable.

Oh my god. This tea.Raw leaf smells strongly of cut grass. The liqueur is light and unassuming.
First steeping is incredible. Creamy and heavy on the tongue with notes of roasted cashew, fresh cream custard, jasmine flowers, equal parts floral and savory. Second steeping brings out a soft mineral taste and aroma like rain on the Utah sidewalk, the creaminess fading slightly to a greener cashew and the jasmine scent more prominent. Third steeping is more and more like rain, leaving a mineral softness on the palate. By the fourth steeping, the jasmine aroma has softened and I’m detecting cashew again. The flavor is more mineral and drying with a subtle astringency not unlike sprinklers on fresh cut grass. This tea is a revelation. Would steep more times but I want to taste it iced asap.
