Was a typical TGY towards the end but the first flash steepings and dry leaf really surprised me. I got a unfamilar smell and taste over the first two steeping. The liqueur was a pale green almost like a green tea and I got a strong “dark green” vegetable aroma/taste. Maybe kelp or seaweed ? I was so surprised I wasn’t able to pinpoint it before it vanished. Also the body and creaminess with the first few steeping was really unique unfortunely after a total of maybe a minute of steepings it returned to the typical flavor profile and yellow TGY liqueur color.

Interesting, not amazing(TGY isnt my thing lately) but I would drink it again if I had more(only a 6g sample).

I try to refrain from numerically rating a tea until I have tried brewing at least an oz of it with various different parameters and vessels (hotter/colder water, longer/shorter times, yixing/gaiwan etc)
