DRY LEAF
Appearance: Moss green with a splintered texture typical of deeper-steamed senchas.
Aroma: Sweet and salty roasted seaweed. Absolutely delicious.

INFUSION
Appearance: A little cloudy. Greenish-yellow reminiscent of lemongrass.
Mouthfeel: Thin with light astringency.
Aroma: Roasted seaweed and brussel sprouts. Light grassiness.
Taste: A mild and balanced fusion of sweet and savory.

That last comment says it all, really— mild and balanced. Sometimes that’s not a bad place to be, at least for a little while.

Profile

Bio

I review teas for one very practical reason: I want to know which teas I should— or shouldn’t —buy next. I realize that other Steepsters read these reviews for the same reason, so I make every effort to convey my personal tastes and perceptions in a way that’s useful for deciding.

For me, the experience of brewing and enjoying a cup of tea cannot be quantified. For this reason, I do not include a rating with my tasting notes.
