(1st steep: 45 sec) All kinds of seaweed and salt water goodness in the aroma of this tea. I love the bright rich green of the tea leaves themselves. Along with the ocean flavors there is a slight mineral undertone along with a slight grass note. The tea finishes with a creamy butter mouthfeel that is a little unexpected. Overall the tea is well balanced.
(2nd steep: 1 min) The aroma has shifted to be more mineral and salty. There is still an underlying flavor of seaweed that blends well with the mineral and saltiness. The grass flavors are also more predominant in this steeping. A pretty nice post lunch and into the afternoon tea. However, I could see myself settling down and drinking this in the evening after dinner.

Flavors: Dry Grass, Marine, Salty, Seaweed
