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 no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.

The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.

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, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
