These little shaped leaves are so cool! They look like they have been braided into a wheat shape. The leaves look more like white tea than green tea, as they are a very pale color, almost silvery.

I infused these in my gaiwan, and after the first two infusions, the leaves have retained their braid, so I am going to infuse again and see if these open up.

The flavor is so lovely. The tea brews to a very light golden color and it is sweet with hints of hay-like flavor and slight wheat tones. There is an ever-so-slight hint of malt in there as well. So very, very good … definitely not a typical green tea… an excellent tea to try if you think green teas are too grassy … this is more wheat-like and not so much the green-grassy taste.

Oh wow this sounds really very good!

I love the way wheat looks blowing in the wind…the weave. I’ll bet this is beautiful in a gaiwan or glass pot.

After the 3rd & 4th infusions, the braids opened up. The flavor is a little more “green tea” like in these infusions, but it still has a very wheat-y kind of flavor too.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
