drank Fiji by SerendipiTea
239 tasting notes

A small tin, the Clairvoyant Tea Tin…its seethrough, of this has been sitting around for some time. I had no idea what flavor it was, I thought it was “Clairvoyant Tea” by Serendipitea. I found out, after brewing and deciding how to describe it. So here goes: “Grass clippings, I’m pretty sure that this is a tin of grass clippings. The tea is all straight, flat, 1/2” pieces just like out of my lawn mower. Its green, with little blue bits (cornflowers)…did I mention grass clippings? Smells green and fruity, tropical, in the tin. Brewing at 185F, the steam reminds me of cranberries, sour fruit. The taste is high quality green tea. Very light, crisp, none of the steeped-athletic-sock mustiness I get from cheap green teas. Oh look, there is a paper label on the bottom of the tin. FIJI, Wild Pineapple, Papaya & Green Tea…really?…."

Bio

I remember when I discovered that there was more to tea than hot or iced. I was given a loose tea sampler (M.T.W.) and a stainless steel tea ball as a Christmas gift many years ago, by whom I cannot remember. That was the start of what will be a life-long love of fine tea. I discovered Steepster from a blog entry on the Mark. T. Wendell website…and have, from Steepster, discovered even more fine teas and vendors. Bravo!
