16 tasting notes

This one came to me as part of a sampler of teas from Teavana. Being a fan of rich full black teas I put off trying this one for some time.

It smelled of rich black tea, not the faint dainty scent of the green teas i’m used to, then this isn’t a green tea, is it?

I brewed the tea at the rate of 6 tsp. for 3 cups of water at 176F, for 4 minutes. The liquor was a soft butter yellow color with the light scent of grass. It was sweet and mild with no hint of bitterness or astringency.

Not a bad cup of tea, but i’m not sure I’d pay the full price for it on my own (gifts gratefully accepted, of course!).

A mild and soothing cup of tea without the astringent elements from some green teas (or am i not brewing the green teas well?)
