Tea at Sea included a sample of this in my Black Friday order and I’m glad they did. I’ve not been wild about most Ceylon black teas I’ve tried, but this is a green, so I opened it with no preconceptions. The dry leaves are flat with no remarkable odor (or perhaps it’s that I’m a bit stuffy this morning). The wet leaves show a whole other character – verdant and bit lemony. Then I got to the sip and whoa! It’s all over citrus balanced with fresh green. To me this is really citrusy, seriously lemony not in a mouth puckering way, but bright, clean, and fresh. It has a long finish that stays on the tongue and those glands at the back of the mouth for a satisfyingly long time (it’s been half an hour and some breakfast since my last sip and I still feel it). I could not drink cup and after cup of this at one sitting, but I wouldn’t want to either. One bracing cup at a time is perfect.
