On the first sip I was surprised by a nice sweetness. I wasn’t expecting it to be such a sweet tea since I had it unsweetened. After the sweetness it melts into a dry, but not too dry flavor which makes the middle of my tongue tingle. The first few sips I actually got a buttery feel in the after-taste. That faded as I kept drinking the tea.

When I smell the liquor is when I detect the earthiness. My Dad grows string beans in his garden and this smelt EXACTLY like freshly steamed green beans pulled from the ground that day. It doesn’t really TASTE like green beans, but the sweetness I was first overpowered by is related to that smell and is definitely vegetal. This was a lovely tea to start the day with and I would have it again!

I run, I sing, I drink tea. That’s the best description I have of me.

I’ve always enjoyed tea, but have just started trying out a lot more loose teas and varied brands. I’m really excited about a site like steepster so I can read about what people think about different teas.

Oh and I really hate Lipton tea. There’s something just awful about it and I can’t understand why nearly every local diner only has Lipton.

Also I’m on the search for a full-bodied, fruity blackberry tea. So if you have any suggestions feel free to throw them my way! :-)
