Received this as a sample! :) Thanks Stacy!
So apparently this is green tea that the Creamy Eggnog used as a base — which I also had as a sample a little while back — so I’m very interested to try it!
Not entirely sure how the dry leaf smells. Anytime I tried a whiff, I just smelled the Jasmine Pearls that was also in the parcel, heh. After being steeped, it smells of freshly mown grass, but not in a bad way. The liquor is very light, butter like in color.
The taste is buttery and sweet, and has that hint of fresh grass at the swallow. As I sip, I’m picking up on the floral notes from the sweet pea. It’s not bitter, or astringent.
It’s very pleasant. :) It’s making me want to try the Creamy Eggnog again sometime, because I think my palate is far more refined now than it was then. I remember when I had it before I couldn’t taste much beyond hot water until I added a bit of sugar, but I’m tasting this very clearly.
I’m not sure if I’ve been WOWED, but I can say this is one of the better green teas I’ve tried. :)
