Slightly twisted, long, slender olive and silver dry leaves. Very fresh and vegetal in the bag, like a really good dragonwell.
The steeped tea deepens to richer, sweetgrass and fruit notes with a hint of creamy nuttiness. The liquor is a lovely green-gold.
Being a big Dragonwell fan, this tea is bold and bright enough to hold its own against it. (Although quieter in its assertiveness, still very distinct from other greens.)
Not floral, but decidedly sweet. Green, but not as strongly so as Dragonwell. If you’re looking for an alternative green which isn’t overly flora, nor overly green or grassy, this one’s for you.
