The dry leaf smells assam-like; barley and malt. It brews up a nice bright orange.

I don’t know what linseed tastes like, but this is a bit herbacious with mint that lingers into the aftertaste. Faint astringency, no bitterness. There’s a grainyness to it as well. Wouldn’t call it malty though.

The barley smell, coupled with the briskness makes me think an assamica leaf. The tea itself isn’t too heavy though, or very malty.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

Disclaimer: I work for Murchie’s Tea and Coffee as a taster and blender. I will avoid putting any ratings on teas from them from here on out.

A tea-drinking transgendered Canadian, university graduate, majored in geology (yes, “rocks and things”). I take most of my tea made straight into a mug, although occasionally if I’m not in a hurry (this isn’t often), I’ll have time to sit down with a pot or gaiwan. It’s the highlight of a good day.

My notes are pretty disjointed because I’m absent-minded, and I also keep a teatra.de blog for reviewing and rambling about tea books/publications, and an instagram for photos. Except nerding about tea production and history on both.

I’m a Doctor Who fanatic (Jon Pertwee, if you were wondering).
