The leaves on this have lots of silver in them and they’re very twisted and curly, very beautiful. They smell vegetal and sweet.

Steeped up, it’s slightly astringent and bitter, sweet chestnut and peas, a light floral note, which lingers with the sweet pea taste in a nice aftertaste. I’m learning to not totally reject slight astringency, and don’t mind it in this tea. I’m also finding that I don’t like most straight green teas with sweetener. I tried added some to the last half of the cup, ad found that I like this much more unadulterated.

Oh how tastes change, I used to have to sweeten everything, and now not only can I drink a bunch of teas unsweetened, but I prefer some that way.

Yeah, I generally only sweeten flavored teas, and even then I don’t sweeten all of them. Sweet just doesn’t go with a lot of unflavored teas.

I read this as “Human cloud” lol. I was like, I don’t think I want a human cloud….

Maybe it makes you feel so light and tea high that you feel like a human cloud (sounds more like something you’d get from a puerh that a green though)?

And I used to sweeten everything, but lately I don’t sweeten greens or oolong, but I still sweeten blacks because it makes them that much more like a decadent dessert.

I’m also starting to drift away from flavored teas, but still like a good dessert tea every once in awhile.
I will always love a good chai.
I despise licorice and bacon.
