8 tasting notes

Ohhh….this tea. So delicate and lovely and confusing all at once. As others have mentioned, it looks like pine needles when dry. After steeping, it reminded me of cooked collards or spinach. The taste is also vegetal, but not overwhelmingly so. I also got some grassy hints in there, as well. There’s some butteriness in there, too, just to round things out. The finish was pleasantly, refreshingly sweet. I have just enough in my sample pack for one more go, so I think I’m going to steep at a lower temp next time round.

Flavors: Butter, Cut Grass, Green, Vegetal
